Will Forte and Tim Robbins have signed on to replace Ty Burrell and Dennis Quaid in The Switch. Variety reports that the actors have joined the cast of the film, which is based on the 1978 novel by Elmore Leonard. The film is a prequel of sorts to Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown; the novel has the following synopsis:
Ordell Robbie and Louis Gara have lots in common—time in the same slammer, convictions for grand theft auto, and a plan for a big score. They're going to snatch the wife of a Detroit developer and collect some easy ransom money. They don't figure on a bum of a husband who has a secret mistress and no desire to get his wife back. Or on his crazy, beautiful broad of a housewife who's going to join Ordell and Louis in the slickest, saviest crime of all.
Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, Yasiin Bey and Isla Fisher are all set for the film, which is written and directed by Dan Schechter.
