Jennifer Aniston steps way outside of her romantic-comedy comfort zone for her latest film project, “Life of Crime.” As the trailer quickly shows us, there is virtually no romance for her character. Instead, she portrays a wife who’s being pushed aside for her husband’s mistress, played by Isla Fisher.
Everything was going to plan, with her husband, portrayed by Tim Robbins, planning to file for divorce. But then, his wife got kidnapped and her kidnappers asked for a $1 million ransom. The thing they didn’t anticipate is that he kind of doesn’t want her back. In fact, they may have solved all of his problems in one quick move.
The film, also starring Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), John Hawkes, Mark Boone Jr., and Will Forte, is based on the Elmore Leonard novel, “The Switch.” Produced by Michael Siegel, Elizabeth Destro, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Jordan Kessler, and Ashok Amritraj, the film will be distributed by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions, and will be released in theaters on August 29.
