Jennifer Aniston and Dennis Quaid are Making a Switch


Deadline reports that Jennifer Aniston and Dennis Quaid are in talks to join Ty Burrell, John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey in writer/director Dan Schechter’s Switch.

The site says that “Aniston is in talks to play Mickey Dawson, and Quaid to play her crooked real estate developer husband. She’s kidnapped and ransomed by two ex-cons [Ordell Robbie and Louis Gara] (Hawkes and Bey) and when the lowlife husband sees this as a way to get rid of his wife and refuses to pay the ransom, the kidnappers embrace a new opportunity: teaming with a pissed off bombshell housewife to get all of her husband’s money.”

Famously played on the big screen by Samuel L. Jackson and Robert De Niro in 1997’s Jackie Brown, the characters Ordell Robbie and Louis Gara first appeared in the 1978 Elmore Leonard novel “The Switch.”
