Aniston's Switch to gritty drama

Jennifer Aniston is set to star in Switch, the upcoming prequel to Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown.

The former Friends starlet and Dennis Quaid are in talks to join Dan Schechter's big-screen adaptation of Elmore Leonard's novel of the same name, reported Deadline.

The 43-year-old - who previously appeared in romantic comedy The Switch alongside Jason Bateman - is in talks to play kidnapped housewife Mickey Dawson, with Dennis tipped to be cast as her crooked real estate developer husband.

Yasiin 'Mos Def' Bey and John Hawkes are already on board as ex-cons Ordell Robbie and Louis Gara, previously played in Jackie Brown by Samuel L Jackson and Robert De Niro, who try to play the husband and wife against each other.

Elmore's novel Rum Punch was turned into Jackie Brown by Tarantino, and also starred Pam Grier and Bridget Fonda.

Jennifer, who last appeared in Horrible Bosses, next stars in Wanderlust with Paul Rudd, which opens in cinemas on March 2.
