Director and actress to attend special screening of 1994 film in Cannes

Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman are expected to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Pulp Fiction with a special screening at the Cannes Film Festival tonight (May 23).

Director Tarantino will introduce the film at the beach screening with Thurman also confirmed to attend. Deadline reports that that John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston may also be at the screening. However, fellow cast members including Samuel L Jackson, Bruce Willis and Christopher Walken are not expected.

Pulp Fiction was released in 1994 and won the Cannes Palme d’Or when it debuted at the festival in the same year.

Meanwhile, Tarantino has reportedly decided to continue with his The Hateful Eight film. The filmmaker shelved plans to make the Western in January of this year after the script was leaked online.

However, it was recently reported that Tarantino told audience members at a reading of the axed script in LA, which featured Samuel L Jackson, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen, that he was working on a second draft of the screenplay.

Tarantino’s last film, Django Unchained, was a critical and commercial hit upon its 2012 release and subsequently won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, with Christoph Waltz pick up the Best Supporting Actor gong.
