Late last month, the Oscars saw Pulp Fiction Starring Uma Thurman, John Travolta and Samuel. L. Jackson reunites to celebrate the 27th anniversary of their iconic film. Shortly after the ceremony, it was announced that Jackson and Therman would be working together again on a new film. The Kill Room is an upcoming dark comedy police thriller by writer Jonathan Jacobson and director Nicol Paone. According to a new report from Deadlinethe duo will be together Zack Snyder’s Justice Leagues Joe Manganiello.
The film follows a killer (Manganiello), his boss (Jackson) and an art dealer (Thurman) “whose money laundering scheme accidentally turns the killer into an avant-garde overnight.” This forces Therman’s character to “play the art world against the underworld.” Production is expected to take place this spring in New Jersey and New York.
The Kill Room Produced by Yale Entertainment and the recently released sales and distribution banner, Great Escape, which manages international sales and collaborates with US rights with ICM Partners. The work is expected to be sold in Cannes.
Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman and Jon Keeyes are producing under their Yale Productions banner with Idiot Savant Pictures’ Anne Clements. Paone, Thurman, Dannielle Thomas and Jason Weinberg of Untitled Entertainment are also co-producing with William Rosenfeld of Such Content. Executive producers include Robert Kapp, Scott Levenson, Jason Kringstein, Richard Switzer, Ian Niles, Philip W. Shaltz, Bradley Pilz, Michael Rothstein, Jesse Korman and Jeffrey Tusi.
“To make The Kill Room “An already incredible script – with Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson is beyond my wildest dreams,” Paone said when the film was announced. “Every moment they appear on the screen, they are both enviable and impressive. “I’m eternally grateful to both of them for saying yes, and I’m excited to bring it to life with Anne Clements and Yale Productions.”
“The combination of Uma and Sam for this project is a dream come true,” added Levine and Beckerman. “We are confident that Nicol will deliver a distinctive film and a film that strikes the perfect balance between dark humor and the emotions of your place.”
