Pulp Fiction leads Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson are reuniting in Yale Entertainment’s dark comedy thriller The Kill Room.
Nicol Paone will direct from a screenplay by Jonathan Jacobson about a hitman, his boss (Jackson), an art dealer (Thurman) and their money laundering scheme that accidentally turns the hitman into an overnight avant-garde.
Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman, and Jon Keeyes are producing for Yale Productions alongside Anne Clements of Idiot Savant Pictures, Paone, Thurman, and Dannielle Thomas and Jason Weinberg from Untitled Entertainment.
Production will begin in spring in New Jersey and New York, with Yale’s recently launched sales and distribution arm Great Escape handling international sales and co-representing US rights with ICM Partners.
Thurman currently stars on Showtime series Super Pumped. Her feature credits include the Kill Bill films, Dangerous Liaisons, Batman & Robin, and Gattaca.
Jackson can currently be seen in The Last Days Of Ptolemy Grey for Apple TV+ and he is an executive producer on the series. Among his film credits are Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained, The Hitman’s Bodyguard films, and the Star Wars prequel trilogy.
Yale recently announced it had set Brittany Snow’s feature directorial debut September 17th. The company is in post-production on two features which their Lafayette Pictures partner Katie Holmes directed and starred in: Alone Together with Jim Sturgess and Melissa Leo, and Rare Objects with Derek Luke and Alan Cumming.
