Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson, who of course both starred in Pulp Fiction, will be the two leads in a “darkly comic” thriller titled The Kill Room, THR announces today.

Nicol Paone is directing The Kill Room, written by Jonathan Jacobson.

THR details, “The story follows a hitman, his boss (Jackson), an art dealer (Thurman) and a money laundering scheme that accidentally turns the assassin into an overnight, avant-garde, sensation, one that forces her to play the art world against the underworld.”

“Getting to make The Kill Room — an already incredible script — with Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson, is beyond my wildest dreams,” said Paone. “Every moment they’re on screen, 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 alongside Anne Clements and Yale Productions.”

The producers tell THR, “The combination of Uma and Sam for this project is a dream come true. 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.”

Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price/Mr. Glass and James McAvoy (background, in yellow) as Kevin Wendell Crumb/The Horde in “Glass,” written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
