Jackson flies in for Kite role

Samuel L Jackson is set to star in action movie Kite

Samuel L Jackson has revealed he will reunite with Snakes On A Plane director David R Ellis for Kite.

The Pulp Fiction star is set to appear in David's upcoming live-action adaptation of the 1998 Japanese anime, which will be filmed in South Africa.

"After RoboCop, I'm going to do this live-action version of Kite, the Japanese anime. I'll be doing a live-action version of that in Johannesburg," the 63-year-old told Movies.com.

The story focuses on a teenage girl who trains as an assassin in an attempt to track down her parents' killers, with the help of two corrupt detectives.

Samuel - who didn't reveal details about his Kite role - will next be seen in Quentin Tarantino's western Django Unchained, before the RoboCop remake with Joel Kinnaman and Gary Oldman.

He will also reprise his role as Shield leader Nick Fury in the Captain America sequel, titled The Winter Soldier.
