John Hawkes On For Jackie Brown Prequel
He'll star in SwitchLet's acquire one factor obvious from the beginning: Quentin Tarantino isn't associated with this film, although it has his blessing. No, author/director Serta Schecter may be the guy behind this adaptation of Elmore Leonard's Switch, and she has Martha Marcy May Marlene star John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey (the artist formerly referred to as rapper-switched-actor Mos Def) prepared to star.Hawkes and Bey will have the more youthful versions of Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie, as performed correspondingly by Robert P Niro and Samuel L. Jackson in Tarantino's film, which itself was modified from Leonard's Rum Punch.Schechter required a gamble writing a script in line with the Switch, which Leonard released in 1978, and sent it to Michael Siegel, who is actually the author's representative. Impressed together with his work, the happy couple handed him the film privileges and decided to be producers. Youthful filmmakers have faith: it may happen!The plot, set fifteen years prior to the occasions in Brown, finds Louis and Ordell joining as much as kidnap Mickey Dawson, a lady married to some corrupt Detroit property magnate. However when her husband will not spend the money for ransom, the crooks use the wife to obtain her revenge. Schecter is striving to begin shooting the film in May.Hawkes continues to be winning plaudits only at that year's Sundance Film Festival for his leading role within the Surrogate, in regards to a disabled poet who seeks to get rid of his virginity having a professional sex surrogate (Helen Search). He'll also appear this season in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln subsequently. Bey most made an appearance upon us crime drama Dexter.
