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.
The story takes place about 15 years before “Jackie Brown,” and (John) Hawkes and (Yasiin) Bey will portray younger versions of criminal characters Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie. In “Jackie Brown,” Gara was played by Robert De Niro, with Samuel L. Jackson portraying Robbie.
Amazon now has the iPod Shuffle available for pre-order. Since it doesn’t have a display, we suggest that you just load it up with the soundtracks from Tarantino’s films. That way, you are guaranteed some good tunes.
