Uma Thurman is in talks to join AMERICAN ULTRA alongside Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg. The story follows a stoner (Eisenberg) whose past catches up with him when he and his girlfriend (Stewart) are hunted by government agents tasked with silencing both of them. Thurman will play “a government worker who spearheaded a secret program to create sleeper warriors and now that someone wants to kill her creation, she will fight back like a momma bear protecting her cub.”
Max Landis (“Chronicle”) wrote the script that Nima Nourizadeh will direct. Anthony Bregman, David Alpert and Britton Rizzio will produce.
Thurman can be seen currently in “Nymphomaniac – Part I.”
She is repped by UTA.
