Lars von Trier is at it again with the Matt Dillon-starrer THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT (which we talked about several months ago). Now, Variety is reporting that Uma Thurman will battle Dillon who will star as a serial killer named Jack.

Director – Toshiya Fujita

“She walks a diabolical path because she was born into vengeance, and god dammit she’s going to get it. Armed with her parasol sword, Yuki Kashima WILL avenge her family. She was brought into the world on a prison floor, and shortly before her mother died, and was charged (as a baby) to go out and get revenge on the criminals that murdered her father and raped her mother. Trained by a mean priest by being repeatedly thrown down a rocky hill in a wooden barrel at eight years of age, will Yuki become the assassin her mother always wanted? Will her paper-thin umbrella-sword-thing stand the test of time? And most importantly, why did she kill that guy at the very beginning?”
