‘Pulp Fiction’ Features Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson Reunited in New Thriller
Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman to Star Together in New Thriller The killing room.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is a “darkly comic” crime story, which will follow a hitman, his boss (Jackson) and an art dealer (Thurman). When a money laundering scheme accidentally turns the killer into a creative sensation, the art world and the underworld find themselves in a brutal conflict.
The two actors previously appeared together in Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 classic pulp Fiction. Jackson played criminal Jules Winnfield, while Thurman was Mia Wallace, the wife of Winnfield’s boss.
Both have collaborated with director Tarantino ever since, with Thurman starring in the Kill Bill films – which could still become a trilogy after years of speculation – and Jackson appearing in Jackie Brown, Django Unchainedand The Hateful Eight.
Manufacturing on The killing room to start this spring, with Nicol Paone (Friends) director and Jonathan Jacobson as screenwriter. No release date has yet been set for the film.
” Can do The killing room — an already incredible storyline — starring Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson is beyond my wildest dreams,” Paone said. “Every moment they’re on screen, they’re both enviable and eye-catching. I’m eternally grateful to them for saying yes.
At last month’s Academy Awards (March 27), Jackson, Thurman and others pulp Fiction co-star John Travolta has reunited to mark 28 years since the release of the Oscar-winning film.
Showing off a case of props he brought on stage, Jackson added that it was “everything in that case.” He then proceeded to open the box, which shone gold on their faces in reference to the 1994 film, before revealing the envelope for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role – which went to Will Smith for King Richard.
