The story is set 15 years before the events in Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown, following Louis Gara (John Hawkes) and Ordell Robbie (Yasiin Bey) as they join forces to kidnap Mickey (Jennifer Aniston) , the wife of a real estate magnate (Tim Robbins). Their plan goes south when the husband refuses to pay the ransom, leading Mickey to use her abductors for revenge.
Will Forte plays Marshall Taylor, a member of Mickey's country club who witnesses the kidnapping and has a serious crush on Mickey. Isla Fisher also stars as a younger version of Melanie, originally played by Bridget Fonda in Jackie Brown.
Daniel Schechter is directing from his own adapted screenplay, based on Elmore Leonard's novel. Production is scheduled to begin next month.
