Maya Hawke joins mother Uma Thurman in The Kill Room

Maya Hawke, who is known for her role in “Stranger Things,” will be in the upcoming dark comedy thriller “The Kill Room” with her mom Uma Thurman.

The movie is directed by Nicol Paone (Friendsgiving), with a script by Jonathan Jacobson. Hawke and Thurman star, along with Thurman’s Pulp Fiction co-star Samuel L. Jackson and Joe Manganiello (Justice League by Zack Snyder).

According to Entertainment Weekly, The Kill Room is about a hitman named Reggie (Manganiello), his boss (Jackson), an art dealer (Thurman), and their plan to launder money, which accidentally makes Reggie a public figure. The turn of events forces Thurman’s character to play the art world against the criminal world.”

Maya Hawke will work with her mother for the first time in The Kill Room. She has worked with her father, Ethan Hawke, in The Good Lord Bird, and the two are set to play father and daughter in the coming-of-age comedy Revolver from Andrew Stanton (Finding Dory). She will be back in Stranger Things for the fourth season, which starts this Friday.
