Jackie Brown Prequel In The Works

So is it possible that Quentin Tarantino is going to be working on a prequel to Jackie Brown once he finishes up with Django Unchained? It appears the Jackie Brown prequel is going to happen, but no, Quentin isn’t involved.

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.

Much like Jackie Brown, the prequel will be based on the novel The Switch by Elmore Leonard. Jackie Brown was based on Leonard’s novel Rum Punch.
