Another one of late author Elmore Leonard's stories comes to life on the big screen later this summer with the upcoming comedy Life of Crime, which was formerly known as Switch. Today, Lionsgate has released the first trailer for this humorous crime saga, which follows two crooks (Yasiin Bey and John Hawkes) who kidnap the wife (Jennifer Aniston) of a millionaire (Tim Robbins) just as he is ready to divorce her. The project marks a prequel, of sorts, to Jackie Brown, with Yasiin Bey and John Hawkes playing younger versions of Ordell Robbie and Louis Gara, originally played by Samuel L. Jackson and Robert De Niro in Quentin Tarantino's 1997 adaptation. Isla Fisher, Mark Boone Junior and Will Forte co-star in director Daniel Schechter's adaptation of Elmore Leonard's 1978 novel The Switch, which debuts in theaters and on VOD formats August 29.
