John Cusack Takes Off For AIRSPACE

John Cusack is in negotiations to star in the thriller Airspace. He will be joining director Roger Avery, who is also working out his deal with producers even though he has already started work on polishing Briana Hartman’s screenplay.

Variety describes the film as a variation of Steven Spielberg’s Duel, set in the sky with Cusack as –

[A] work-absorbed charter pilot flying home to his family who must escape a sudden attack by a heavily armed MiG fighter jet after finding a mysterious briefcase in his plane.

The project is another in Cusack’s recent career journeys into thriller territory, a change up from the usual light comedies and dramatic films that have made up a bulk of his resume so far. In the near future we will see him in The Paperboy, The Numbers Station, The Frozen Ground and Motel.
