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.
