Uma Thurman to play nun who rescued Ugandan child slaves
Comment Email Print
 
Hollywood star Uma Thurman has been cast in an independent drama based on the 1996 abduction of 140 schoolgirls in Uganda forced to fight as child soldiers and serve as sex slaves.

Thurman, the 39-year-old star of 'Pulp Fiction' and 'Kill Bill,' will play the nun who tracked down the armed rebels responsible for the abduction and secured the release of 110 of the children, Variety reported.

The film, titled 'Girl Soldier,' is based on Canadian journalist Kathy Cook's book about the incident, "Stolen Angels."

"This is a film that had to get made," Uma said.  "It's beyond me that in this day and age the exploitation of child soldiers goes virtually unnoticed and unchecked by Western media."

Filming is due to get underway in early 2010.
