Uma Thurman for American Ultra
Uma Thurman looks set to sign up for American Ultra.
The Nymphomaniac actress is in talks to play a government worker in the action comedy, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.
Uma would join Twilight's Kristen Stewart and The Social Network actor Jesse Eisenberg in the film.
American Ultra follows Phoebe (Kristen), the girlfriend of a drug addict, Mike (Jesse), who she lives with in a small sleepy town.
Their lives take a dramatic turn when Mike's past comes back to haunt him and he becomes the target of a government operation to wipe him out.
Uma is tipped to play a government worker who spearheaded a secret programme to create sleeper warriors. Now that someone wants to kill her creation "she will fight back like a momma bear protecting her cub".
Nima Nourizadeh will direct.
