Roadside Attractions has released three new images and trailer for their upcoming film, LIFE OF CRIME.

When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in LIFE OF CRIME, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch.

In their 2013 Toronto International Film Festival review, Sound on Sight said, “LIFE OF CRIME is a reasonable addition to the world of Leonard adaptations.”

Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte, and Tim RobbinsLIFE OF CRIME is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.

Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (yasiin bey and John Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.

LIFE OF CRIME stars Jennifer Aniston (We’re the MillersHorrible Bosses) yasiin bey (Begin Again,Next Day Air), Isla Fisher (The Great GatsbyNow You See Me), Will Forte (Nebraska, “Saturday Night Live”), Mark Boone Junior (“Sons of Anarchy,” Memento) with Tim Robbins (Bull Durham) and John Hawkes (Winter’s BoneLincoln).

Producers are Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Lee Stollman, Jordan Kessler, Ashok Amritraj, Michael Siegel and Elizabeth Destro. Executive producers are Elmore Leonard, Jennifer Aniston, Aleen Keshishian, Charles Sauveur Bonan, Kim Leadford, Larry Ladove, James Garavente, Jacob Pechenik, Christopher Herghelegiu and Bryan Mansour.
