Isla Fisher in Talks to Join Cast in JACKIE BROWN Prequel

By AMC November 15, 2012

The dynamic duo of Ordell and Louis, first introduced to the big-screen in Quentin Tarantino's 1997 crime drama "Jackie Brown", is back with a vengeance in the upcoming adaptation of Elmore Leonard's 1978 novel "The Switch". Being helmed by Dan Schechter in his directorial debut, new casting updates reveal that Isla Fisher, best known for her memorable role in "The Wedding Crashers" playing opposite Vince Vaughn, is in talks to join the cast. The film roster already includes Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey, rapper-turned-actor formerly known as Mos Def.

The flick is a prequel to "Jackie Brown" and starts 15 years prior to the events in that film. It follows the misadventures of criminals Ordell and Louis as they kidnap a corrupt Detroit real estate developer's wife, played by Jennifer Aniston. As with many crime dramas, their plan goes horribly wrong when the husband refuses to pay ransom for the return of his wife, so the three team up in an unlikely pairing to get her revenge.

If Fisher signs on for the project, she will be playing Melanie, who was portrayed by Bridget Fonda in "Jackie Brown".

Production of the film is tentatively scheduled to begin in February. Be sure to check back as the story develops.
