“Modern Family” star Ty Burrell added to cast of “Jackie Brown” prequel


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Are you interested in a “Jackie Brown” prequel if Quentin Tarantino isn’t involved? How about if a cast member of “Modern Family” holds down a leading role?

Because EW is confirming that Ty Burrell, the loveable suburban dad on ABC’s smash comedy, has earned a role in writer-director Dan Schechter’s planned “Jackie Brown” prequel, titled “The Switch.” According to the site, Burrell will play Marshall Taylor, a “guilt-riddled country clubber who witnesses the kidnapping of a woman he secretly desires.”

Like Tarantino’s effort, Schechter’s film will be adapted from an Elmore Leonard novel, though the action in this story takes place 15 years before “Brown.”As of right now, John Hawkes and Mos Def have been cast as Louis Gara and Ordell, two Leonard characters who were portrayed by Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson in the 1997 film.

EW says filming “is scheduled to begin in May, though no release date has been announced.”

What do you think? Good casting? Do you like the idea of the film? Let us know.
