Elmore Leonard fans take note: Daniel Schechter’s Life of Crime, his adaptation of Leonard’s novel Switch, is coming to theaters and VOD on August 29. Yasiin Bey and John Hawkes star as, respectively, Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson’s character in Jackie Brown) and Louis Gara, two Detroit low lifes who kidnap millionaire Frank Dawson’s (Tim Robbins) wife Mickey (Jennifer Aniston), expecting to cash in on a huge ransom. Isla Fisher, Mark Boone Jr., Will Forte, Kevin Corrigan, Charlie Tahan, and Clea Lewis complete the ensemble of this comic caper set in a gritty, ’70s era Motor City and filled with Leonard’s vivid, witty dialogue.
