Even if John Cusack’s latest satire/action movie “War Inc.” doesn’t sound promising enough, how about good girl pop singer Hilary Duff playing a foreign pop singer name Yonica Babyyeah whose hit song includes the catchy ditty, “I Want to Blow You … Up”. No, seriously. A clip from Hilary Duff performing the song for a chagrin John Cusack below, as well as some new stills from the movie that we just got in the mail.
Here’s the plot:
A political satire set in Turaqistan, a country occupied by an American private corporation run by a former US Vice-President (Aykroyd). In an effort to monopolize the opportunities the war-torn nation offers, the corporation’s CEO hires a troubled hit man (Cusack), to kill a Middle East oil minister. Now, struggling with his own growing demons, the assassin must pose as the corporation’s Trade Show Producer in order to pull off this latest hit, while maintaining his cover by organizing the high-profile wedding of Yonica Babyyeah (Duff) an outrageous Middle Eastern pop star, and keeping a sexy left wing reporter (Tomei) in check.
Starring John Cusack, Joan Cusack, Marisa Tomei, Hilary Duff, Ben Kingsley, and directed by Joshua Seftel.
