Pulp Fiction co-stars Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson set to reunite onscreen in forthcoming comedy-thriller The Kill Room
Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson are set to reunite onscreen in the forthcoming comedy-thriller The Kill Room.
The news about the performers, aged 51 and 73, respectively, was originally revealed by The Hollywood Reporter on Friday.
The pair previously costarred in the highly influential 1994 crime comedy feature Pulp Fiction, and they recently reunited with their castmate, John Travolta, at last Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony.

The Kill Room will be centered on a hitman and his boss – with the latter being played by Jackson – who come into contact with an art dealer, played by Thurman.
The three then become involved in a money-laundering scheme that inadvertently turns the assassin into an overnight sensation.
The hired gun is then forced to pit the benefits and connections of the art world against the seedy criminal underworld.
Director Nicol Paone gave a statement to the media outlet to express his excitement about being able to work with the Pulp Fiction stars.

‘Getting to make The Kill Room—an already incredible script—with Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson is beyond my wildest dreams,’ he said.
The filmmaker also noted that the pair had impressive chemistry and that he was grateful for their involvement.
‘Every moment they’re onscreen, they are both enviable and eye-catching. I am eternally grateful to both of them for saying yes, and I am thrilled to bring this to life,’ he said.
Producers Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman also spoke to the media outlet to show their enthusiasm for the forthcoming project.
‘The combination of Uma and Sam for this project is a dream come true,’ they stated.

The pair went on to note that the project was in good hands with Paone as its director.
‘We are certain that Nicol is going to deliver a special film, and one that strikes the perfect balance between dark humor and edge-of-your-seat thrills,’ they said.
Thurman and Jackson appeared with Travolta to present the Best Actor award at the 94th Academy Awards, which took place this past Sunday.
During the presentation, the Snakes on a Plane made several jokes about Pulp Fiction’s legacy while the actress and her former castmate danced on stage.
At one point, the three looked into a glowing briefcase, which was the main point of contention in the 1994 movie.
Jackson went on to pull an envelope containing the name of the award’s winner, who turned out to be Will Smith.
