There has been plenty of talk about the potential Jackie Brown prequel, since it was revealed that the movie was being made, with the cast already being completed. However, it was recently revealed that Dennis Quaid and Ty Burrell would have to pull out of the project.
While the exit of two accomplished actors would throw any movie into disarray, the producers of the Jackie Brown prequel have acted swiftly. They have decided to replace the out going Dennis and Ty with Tim Robbins and Will Forte, who are more than capable of holding their own.
The Jackie Brown prequel is based on the Elmore Leonard novel The Switch and will be set 15 years before the Quentin Tarantino movie. Tim Robbins will play a corrupt real estate developer, while Will Forte will play a married country club member with a moral dilemma.
As well as Tim Robbins and Will Forte, the Jackie Brown prequel will also star Jennifer Aniston, Mos Def and John Hawkes and is set to begin shooting next month. The currently untitled project has been written by Dan Schechter, who will also be directing the movie.
