Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have released the first trailer for the Jackie Brown quasi-prequel, Life of Crime.
Based on the Elmore Leonard novel ‘The Switch’, Life of Crime finds Margaret “Mickey” Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the naive wife of adulterine swindler Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), kidnapped by two criminal friends out to wangle a hefty ransom. Little did the kidnappers realise that Frank’s interest in seeing his beloved wife again would be far outweighed by his love for his sex-kitten mistress Melanie (Isla Fisher).
Written and directed by Daniel Schechter, the film also stars John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey portraying younger versions of the Louis Gara (Robert De Niro) and Ordell Robbie (Samuel L Jackson) characters from 1997’s Jackie Brown.
HAving made waves at the likes of the Toronto International Film Festival and receiving a shower of praise from critics we can’t wait to catch this one when it hits the UK on 5 September 2014. We’ll leave you with the trailer, originally from Yahoo. Let us know what you think.
