In Yasiin Bey’s next feature film he will play a role previously filled by Samuel L. Jackson who played opposite of Robert de Niro and Pam Greer. If you’re not familiar with Quetin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown, it’s an adaptation of the Elmore Leonard book, Rum Punch. (Elmore Leonard also wrote the book/movie Get Shorty.) Switch takes place 15 years prior to the events of Rum Punch.
In Switch, Ordell Robbie (Sam Jackson’s character) and Louis Gara (De Niro’s character) kidnap a real estate developer’s wife only to get stiffed on the ransom
