Travolta and Jackson’s “Basic” instinct

Pulp Fiction fans have a new reason to rejoice: John Travolta and Samuel L Jackson–who both starred in Quentin Tarantino‘s 1994 hit–are pairing up again for Phoenix Pictures’ new military thriller Basic, set to begin production in November.

Travolta and Jackson will play the leads in Basic, a drama centering on a Drug Enforcement Agency officer’s investigation of the mysterious disappearance of a famed U.S. Army drill instructor and a group of cadets, Variety reports.

John McTiernan (The Thomas Crown Affair) will direct Basic based on the screenplay by newcomer James Vanderbilt.
