Cusack And Akerman Sign On For THE NUMBERS STATION

Posted on 25 October 2011 by Rich Drees

John Cusack and Malin Akerman have been signed to play the leads in the thriller The Numbers Game. Cusack is replacing Ethan Hawke, who had been previously attached to the project.

According to the folks at Content Film –

Cusack plays a disgraced black ops agent tasked with a dead-end job of protecting a code operator for an isolated covert CIA broadcast station played by Akerman. His mission is simple: protect the code operator. Keep her safe and secure, whilst knowing that she must never be taken alive…”

Filming is set to commence next month with Danish director Kasper Barfoed behind the camera. The screenplay is by F. Scott Frazier who sold the spec script Line Of Sight to Warner Brothers last February.

I know this doesn’t seem to be much of a news item, but Cusack is a pretty solid and dependable actor, even when he is in a stinker of a film. His presence alone means we’ll be watching for more news on this project as it moves towards actual production.
