THE BIGGER SCOPE
After a break of three decades, Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman are back together in the humorously grim thriller, The Kill Room, to deliver another high-voltage, nail-biting adventure to audiences. The narrative revolves around an art dealer embroiled in a money-laundering robbery alongside a hitman, escalating into unforeseen peril. The ensemble cast features Maya Hawke, among many gifted performers. Mark your calendars for September 28 as the world of art and hitmen intertwines.
Shout! Studios unveils the upcoming theater release of The Kill Room on September 28, according to Deadline. The comedic thriller stars the formidable duo, Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman, both previously renowned for Pulp Fiction. This cinematic debut marks their reunion after nearly three decades, promising another adrenaline-fueled spectacle. Director Nicol Paone (known for Friendsgiving) helms the feature, taking us back to the high-intensity action roots of the two leads.
Penned by Jonathan Jacobson, The Kill Room delves into the journey of an art dealer (played by Thurman), who teams up with a lethal hitman (Joe Manganiello) and his boss (played by Jackson) in a money-laundering scheme that spins wildly out of control. Amidst the crime’s execution, the hitman’s artwork garners attention, transforming him into a creative phenomenon. Suddenly in the spotlight, the art dealer finds herself against her own world and a dangerous underworld she inadvertently uncovers.
Audiences will not only experience the thrill of seeing Jackson and Thurman on screen after Quentin Tarantino’s legendary movie but also witness Thurman share screen time with her real-life daughter, Maya Hawke, known for Stranger Things, Do Revenge, and Asteroid City. Other notable cast members include Candy Buckley (Bachelorette), Dree Hemingway (The Unicorn), Debi Mazar (Younger), Larry Pine (Succession), Amy Keum (Honor Society), Alexander Sokovikov (For All Mankind), Jennifer Kim (Mozart in the Jungle), Tom Pecinka (The Survivalist), and Matthew Maher (Air).
