Ty Burrell joins the Jackie Brown prequel SwitchModern Family star Ty Burrell has joined the cast of Switch, writer-director Daniel Schechter's prequel to Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown.

We first reported on this project last week, when John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) joined the cast. The story is set 15 years before the events of Jackie Brown, and follows Ordell Robbie (Yasiin Bey) and Louis Gara (John Hawkes) as they try to kidnap Mickey Dawson, the wife of a crooked Detroit real estate magnate. Ty Burrell will play Marshall Taylor, a married country club member who has a crush on Mickey and witnesses the kidnapping.

Daniel Schechter is directing from his own screenplay, which is adapted from Elmore Leonard's novel. Production is slated to begin in May.

Life of Crime was released August 29th, 2014.
