Jennifer Aniston and Dennis Quaid have entered talks to star in forthcoming Jackie Brown prequel The Switch.

Aniston will play Mickey Dawson, the wife of a corrupt Detroit real estate dealer (Quaid) who is kidnapped by two ex-cons Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie, to be played by John Hawkes and Mos Def.

When Mickey's husband fails to pay the ransom money, she teams up with the criminals to get back at him.

Gara and Robbie are younger versions of the characters played by Robert De Niro and Samuel L Jackson in Quentin Tarantino's 1997 film Jackie Brown.

Author Leonard will serve as a producer on the film alongside Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Lee Stollman and Michael Siegel, reports Deadline.

Dan Schechter wrote the script for The Switch and will also direct the movie. Tarantino has no involvement in the project, but has reportedly given his blessing to the production.
