IM Stopping Power GmbH, a subsidiary of IM Internationalmedia AG, has announced that after finalizing preproduction the start of principal photography of the Jan de Bont-directed action thriller Stopping Power has been suspended.
Since the key investor in the film had not been able to fulfill his obligations, the Internationalmedia Group has not been able to currently close the required financing and therefore has postponed the project. The company is already seeking for alternative investors and assumes that the production can be continued shortly.
John Cusack, Jason Isaacs and Melissa George were set to star. In the story, a criminal on the run (Isaacs) steals an RV with a young girl inside, then forces the girl’s father (Cusack) to participate in his getaway by acting as a decoy for the police.
