Samuel L. Jackson and the super PAC that funds comedian Sarah Silverman’s “Great Schlep” are reportedly in talks to cut a new ad, which could feature the “Pulp Fiction” actor telling voters to “Wake the f**k up, vote for Obama.”

The spot has been pitched and would be written by the author Adam Mansbach, whose salty children’s book, “Go the F**k to Sleep,” became a viral hit when Jackson’s reading of it was posted on YouTube.

The New York Post reported this morning that the script was in and the shoot was imminent, but Ben Wyskida of the Jewish Council and Education and Research told ABC News tonight that while Jackson had expressed interest in doing the ad, there is no deal just yet.

First up, Wyskida said, was a new video featuring Silverman, who in 2008 famously asked young (mostly Jewish) voters to go down to Florida – in The Great Schlep – to guilt their grandparents into voting for then-candidate Barack Obama.

This election season, Silverman, backed by super PAC bucks, released a video asking casino magnate and Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson to switch sides and send President Obama the $100 million he had purportedly pledged to the Romney cause.

If Adelson took her up on the offer, Silverman said, she would “scissor” him, “wearing a bikini bottom, through to fruition.”

He did not.
