So Quentin Tarantino has told that he will not be doing a prequel to Jackie Brown called The Switch. Jackie Brown itself was based on Elmore Leonardâ€™s crime novel Rum Punch. But the two characters played by Robert De Niro and Samuel Jackson originated from another novel call the Switch.
Now producers are trying to make The Switch into another feature film prequel. But the original movie was not really that successful unless you consider the DVD sales of the film. Now the new film will have younger version of the stars Robert De Niro and Samuel Jackson. So they wonâ€™t be even reprising their roles for the film. So there will be a lot of pressure for the director and producer of the film to do something about it.
Here is a synopsis of the other film.
Ordell Robbie and Louis Gara hit it off in prison, where they were both doing time for grand theft auto. Now that they’re out, they’re joining forces for one big score. The plan is to kidnap the wife of a wealthy Detroit developer and hold her for ransom. But they didn’t figure the lowlife husband wouldn’t want his lady back. So it’s time for Plan B and the opportunity to make a real killing â€” with the unlikely help of a beautiful, ticked-off housewife who’s hungry for a large helping of sweet revenge.
The screenplay for the film will be written by Dan Schechter along with producer Michael Siegel and the imminent search for a director along with whoever come on to play these character. So this will turn only good unless they get the right actors to play the main roles which will be a difficult task.
