Jackson Ups His Cult Cred

7/24/2006 5:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Samuel Jackson: Click to watch"Snakes on a Plane" is shaping up to be the most buzzed about movie of the summer and Samuel L. Jackson couldn't be happier. Already achieving cult status with the classic "Pulp Fiction," Jackson is ready to be recognized for something different."

"If people can stop yelling do I know what a quarter-pounder with cheese in France is called and start yelling get these motherf***ing snakes off the motherf***ing plane, I'll be fine, I'll be great."

The premise of the film is simple. Jackson's character is an FBI agent transporting a convict when the plane he's on gets attacked by poisonous snakes. Though the film doesn't open until August 18th, Jackson is already contemplating a sequel.

"There aren't that many vehicles that you can put people on that you can't get off of. Maybe they could do 'Rats on a Plane.' And the tagline for this one is: 'Where's a Snake When You Need One?'"

I like Samuel J.'s humor, but if you have rats, the sensible thing is to get cats.

What's worse than snakes on a plane? How about a 10 hour flight, the only English speaking movie is ' Brokeback Mountain ' playing over & over & over, you're straight, female, get air sick reading, can't sleep due to several screaming babies? Now that was scary! Give me snakes & Mr. Jackson any day.
