John Cusack Wants Thomas Jane to Drive Hard (or Die)

Apparently John Cusack is trying to corner the market on moderately budgeted/essentially straight-to-VOD action movies. I’m honestly not sure when this started, but man, I’m seeing Cusack in a ton of these films. His latest is “Drive Hard” from director Brian Trenchard-Smith, which has Cusack on better form than most of the films I’ve seen him in lately. At least here he seems to be having some fun.

The flick co-stars the Punisher himself Thomas Jane, though here looking very un-Punisher like. I’m also not entirely sure what I think about the ’80s vibe. What is this, a throwback action movie?

Former race car driver Peter Roberts (Thomas Jane) traded the winner’s circle for a 9 to 5 job as a beginners’ driving instructor. But his life shifts into overdrive when Simon Keller (John Cusack) hijacks Peter to be his getaway driver in a $9 million heist.

Starring John Cusack, Thomas Jane, Zoe Ventoura, Christopher Morris, and Yesse Spence.

Driving real hard this September 4th on VOD and in theaters on October 3rd.
