Tim Robbins and Will Forte have joined the cast of crime drama The Switch.

The Oscar-winner and the Saturday Night Live star will take on roles previously thought to be filled by Dennis Quaid and Ty Burrell, reported Variety.

The adaptation of Elmore Leonard's novel will be a prequel to Quentin Tarantino's 1997 film Jackie Brown.

John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey will play younger versions of Robert De Niro and Samuel L Jackson's characters, Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie.

Set 15 years before the events in Jackie Brown, the story follows career criminals Louis and Ordell as they team up to kidnap a woman played by Jennifer Aniston.

Tim will star as her husband, a corrupt real estate developer.

Will is set to play Marshall Taylor, a country club member who is attracted to Jen's character and witnesses her kidnapping.

The film also stars Isla Fisher.
