John Cusack, fresh off solving murders as Edgar Allen Poe in “The Raven” and in the midst of playing a real-life serial killer in “The Frozen Ground”, has signed up to play a disgraced CIA black ops agent in the actioner “The Numbers Station”. He replaces Ethan Hawke, who was originally attached to the role.
Cusack will star opposite Malin Akerman (“Watchmen”), who will play a code breaker at a remote CIA station in the Nevada desert. It’s a dead-end job for Cusack’s character. That is, until bad guys show up and try to turn the two of them into Swiss cheese. Time to summon your inner Martin Blank, Cusack.
Danish director Kasper Barfoed (“The Candidate”) will make his Hollywood debut on the film, directing from a script by Scott Frazier.
