After Uma Thurman’s Oscar-nominated perf in “Pulp Fiction,” it was inevitable that Miramax would want to get their “Pulp” princess into another movie as soon as possible. Thurman is about to sign for the female lead in Ted Demme’s “Beautiful Girls,” co-starring with Matt Dillon.
Timothy Hutton, Lauren Holly, Max Perlich, Rosie O’Donnell and Michael Rappaport are also cast in “Beautiful,” to be produced by Cary Woods, who was once Thurman’s agent at William Morris. The drama, about the night before a 10-year high school reunion, begins shooting in Minneapolis this week. Script is by Scott Rosenberg, who wrote “Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead.”
