Tag Archive: Jackie Brown

Quentin Tarantino has had massive hits (“Pulp Fiction”, “Inglourious Basterds”) and some huge flops (“Grindhouse”, “Jackie Brown”) but last weekend “Django Unchained” officially became Tarantino’s highest grossing film ever. The film stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Do you think “Django” was his best effort?

This was possibly the strangest and one of the most ill-advised films to begin its track toward the silver screen. “Switch”, which will be a prequel to Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown’ began casting. John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey will play Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie, who were played by Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson in the original. Now, Isla Fisher is in talks to play Melanie, who was played by Jane Fonda in the original. This casting is a bit weird because this film will take place 15 years before “Jackie Brown” and yet…Fisher is older than Fonda was when “Jackie Brown” was made. Anyways, Dennis Quaid is no longer involved, but Ty Burrell and Jennifer Aniston are, although their roles haven’t been revealed yet.

Dan Schechter is writing and directing and according to CinemaBlend, the film sees Ordell and Louis become involved in a plot to kidnap a real estate developer’s wife (Aniston). When the husband refuses to pay, however, the wife and the criminals devise a plan to get revenge.
