First Trailer For Elmore Leonard Adaptation Life Of Crime
Jennifer Aniston's in trouble...

Though the world lost crime writer Elmore Leonard last year, his legacy lives on via adaptations of his work. The latest to arrive on the big screen is a version of his 1978 novel The Switch, which, thanks to the fact that lead Jennifer Aniston already made a film of that name, is now called Life Of Crime.

The story finds criminals Ordell Robbie (Yaslin Bay) and Louis Gara (John Hawkes) deciding to kidnap Mickey Dawson (Aniston), the wife of wealthy, corrupt real estate tycoon (Tim Robbins). It’s a seemingly solid plan with just one tiny drawback: it turns out their mark doesn’t particularly want his wife back, and is happier hanging out with his mistress (Isla Fisher).

Everything soon becomes that much complicated, as revenge plots spiral and Mickey decides she’s going to find a little payback herself. It remains to be seen whether this will stand alongside the likes of Out Of Sight or Jackie Brown in the Leonard pantheon, but it shares characters with the latter, serving as a prequel for the criminal characters we met back in Quentin Tarantino’s 1997 film, where they were played by Samuel L. Jackson and Robert De Niro.

Life Of Crime hits UK cinemas on September 5.
