‘Jackie Brown’ Author Elmore Leonard Dies at 87

Sad news today that Elmore Leonard has died.

Elmore’s connection to the Tarantino universe was the novel Rum Punch, which was then made into the film Jackie Brown.

Back in February of 2012, there were rumors that a prequel to Jackie Brown – sans QT involvement – was going to be made based on the Leonard novel The Switch (it apparently never happened). CORRECTION – the prequel is happening and its called Life of Crime.

Leonard is currently most famous because of the Justified TV series – which was based on his novels as well.
