Based on the 1978 Elmore Leonard novel “The Switch,” the crime comedy also stars John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey (a.k.a Mos Def), who play Mickey’s kidnappers, and Tim Robbins as her unfaithful husband. The cast also includes Isla Fisher, who plays Robbins’ character’s mistress, and Will Forte.
“You tell him he’s never going to see his wife again. He doesn’t want to see his wife again,” Fisher’s character says in the trailer. “You just saved him a hundred grand a year in alimony.”
“Life of Crime” premiered at the 2013 Toronto Film Fest and hits theaters Aug. 29.
