John Cusack has found his next role in The Numbers Station, being directed by Kasper Barfoed (The Candidate). Variety reports that The Raven actor will star opposite Malin Akerman in the action thriller. Filming is slated to being in mid-November. Daybreakers producers Sean and Bryan Furst are producing the film under the Furst Film's banner, along with Nigel Thomas from Matador Pictures. Chris Fenton and Chris Cowles are exec producing.
F. Scott Frazier penned the script that has Cusack playing "a disgraced black-ops agent tasked with a deadend job of protecting a code operator for an isolated covert CIA broadcast station played by Akerman." The actor will be seen on the big screen in The Paperboy and Frozen Ground, while Akerman will next be seen in Rock of Ages.
I like Cusack in just about everything, and this sounds pretty cool. What are your thoughts?
