Watch: Trailer For Thriller ‘The Numbers Station’ Starring John Cusack & Malin Akerman

Watch: Trailer For Thriller 'The Numbers Station' Starring John Cusack & Malin Akerman

One actor who made our feature Fire Your Agent: 10 Actors Who Need A Change Of Career Direction was John Cusack, and his upcoming “The Numbers Station” pretty much illustrates why he belongs on that list. Yet another generic thriller (once slated to star Ethan Hawke instead), this is the latest in a string of genre efforts by the actor that are as bland as they are interchangeable.

Penned by F. Scott Frazier and directed by Kaspar Barfoed (who?), production began on this movie way back in the fall of 2011 and it’s no surprise it’s been collecting a bit of dust since then. The thriller finds Cusack playing a disgraced black ops agent tasked with a dead-end job of protecting a code operator (Akerman) for an isolated covert CIA broadcast station. What isn’t explained is why all the operations of the CIA’s code dissemination rely on one woman. Or why a computer can’t do her job. But whatever right? Anyway, soon things are exploding and then we’re bored…

“The Numbers Station” will arrive later this spring. Watch below. [Collider]
