Life of Crime

"You tell him he's never gonna see his wife again? He doesn't want to see his wife again." Following in the footsteps of Get Shorty, Out of Sight and Jackie Brown comes another film based on the darkly funny work of the late author Elmore Leonard. Life of Crime is based on his novel The Switch, the tale of a kidnapping gone wrong when the husband (Tim Robbins) whose wife (Jennifer Aniston) has been kidnapped by a couple of small-time criminals (John Hawkes and Yasmin Bey), doesn't actually want his wife back. This doesn't quite look all that great, but there's some solid dark comedy here and there. Watch the trailer now!

Here's the first trailer for Daniel Schecter's Life of Crime, originally from Yahoo:

Life of Crime is written and directed by Daniel Schecter (Goodbye Baby), based on Elmore Leonard's novel The Switch. The wife (Jennifer Aniston) of a corrupt real estate developer (Tim Robbins) is kidnapped by two common criminals (Yasiin Bey and John Hawkes), who intend to extort him with inside information about his crooked business and off-shore accounts. But the husband decides he'd actually rather not pay the ransom to get back his wife, setting off an unbelievable sequence of double crosses. Will Forte ad Isla Fisher also star in the film which Roadside Attractions releases on VOD and in limited theaters August 29th.

    Aniston getting old

      ...and aging like a fine wine imo.
  • This looks fun! And Aniston is made to look older, obviously. She's still hot in my book.
  • arthurcucumber

  • Astroboy3000
    wait… is Mos Def no longer Mos Def or is that guy just remarkably similar looking?
    • David Diaz
      That's definitely Mos Def. But he is apparently also known as Yasiin Bey (not Yasmin). But the name his parents gave him is Dante Terrell smith. Thank you Wikipedia!
      • avconsumer2
        wtf. I love his work, highly underrated imo, but he's Mos Def. I'm not calling him anything else. Prince is Prince. Puff Daddy is friggin' Puff Daddy. ;P
  • Tony
    Shares a very similar plot with the film Ruthless people starring Danny DeVito
  • Terry Craig
    Doesn't look too good, I'm afraid. Out of all Elmore Leonard adaptations only those that didn't put too much emphasis on making comedy too obvious were the best (Jackie Brown, Get Shorty, while its sequel Be Cool messed up in that regard); I think he said so in an interview himself. I've read "The Switch" (the Leonard novel upon which this film is based) and it was a really cool thriller with very believable characters, but this looks more like a poor man's "Fargo."
  • Bree
    So was Ruthless People based on Elmore Leonards works as well? It's almost the same movie!
  • Aaron
    Mos Def's name is Yasiin Bey not Yasmin Bey!!!
