After taking a week off, The Double Down Film Show is back with our special guest Writer/Director, Dan Schechter, whose next project is The Switch.

Dan is adapting the screenplay based on the popular Elmore Leonard novel. The Switch is actually a prequel to Quentin Tarantino’s, Jackie Brown, following the characters that were played by Sam Jackson and Robert DeNiro, but twenty years prior to the original story.
