Dark Comedy Thriller ‘The Kill Room’ Starring Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman Set to Hit Theaters
On September 28, 2018, audiences throughout the United States can witness the once-in-a-lifetime reunion. According to Deadline, Shout! Studios has announced that the dark comedy thriller, The Kill Room, which stars Pulp Fiction alumni, Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman, will be crashing into cinemas in just over two months. This will bring audiences another high-stakes adventure with the duo, who haven’t been seen opposite one another in almost 30 years. According to our information regarding the feature film that will be directed by Nicol Paone (Friendsgiving), the duo will return to their high-octane, pulse-pounding action beginnings.
The Plot of The Kill Room
The plot of The Kill Room, which Jonathan Jacobson wrote, revolves around an art dealer, played by Thurman, who teams up with a lethal hitman, played by Joe Manganiello, and his employer, played by Jackson, to pull off a money laundering robbery that develops a mind of its own. While the hitman was in the process of committing the crime, his artwork was discovered, which led to him becoming a cultural icon. The art dealer suddenly finds herself in the crosshairs, and she must make snap judgments as she faces a world of her own and the sordid underbelly that she has inadvertently unleashed.
