Thurman and Travolta join up for Get Shorty sequel

Uma Thurman is to play opposite John Travolta again for the sequel to the 1995 hit Get Shorty.

Thurman is set to play Edie, the female lead, a widow who finds herself in business with Travolta's Chili Palmer, reports Teletext.

The pair famously appeared together in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.

While Get Shorty was set in Tinseltown, the second movie - Be Cool - sees Chili moving into the music business.

Danny DeVito is set to reprise his role as actor Martin Weir and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson plays a bodyguard who dreams of being an actor.

Filming for the movie begins next February under director F Gary Gray who was behind the recent remake of The Italian Job.
