Samuel L. Jackson

Samuel L. Jackson is returning to the studio that first paired the Oscar nominated actor with the combination of snakes and planes.

According to Variety, Jackson and his Uppity Films shingle are setting up "Man That Rocks the Cradle" at New Line.

Based on a script by John Cagan, the film focuses on an overworked father of four who decides to hire a live-in nanny. The amusing part here is that Jackson will play the nanny, Marion Delacroix, who the trade paper describes as a "kid whisperer."

New Line and Jackson delivered ample buzz but only so-so box office for that little film called "Snakes on a Plane" just over a year ago.

Jackson, meanwhile, has continued to work at his normally prodigious pace. His 2007 credits have included "Black Snake Moan," "1408" and "Resurrecting the Champ" and he's already completed work on "Lakeview Terrace" and "Jumper," with "Will Eisner's The Spirit" currently in production.
