Los Angeles: John Travolta and Uma Thurman, who starred together in ‘Pulp Fiction’, are in talks to join the cast of Oliver Stone`s drug cartel drama ‘Savages’.

Also in discussion is Blake Lively, reports deadline.com. They will join cast members Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson, Salma Hayek and Oscar-winner Benicio Del Toro.

Based on Don Winslow`s bestselling book, the film centres on two small-time pot dealers (Kitsch and Johnson) who are bullied into aligning themselves with a violent drug cartel (Del Toro) after their close friend (Lively) is kidnapped.

Travolta will play an agent on the case, and Thurman will play Lively`s mother.

Writer Winslow penned the script with Shane Salerno. Universal Pictures will produce and distribute ‘Savages’, which will go on floors in early July.
