John Cusack to Headline The Numbers Station

ON

John Cusack has joined the cast of the CIA action thriller The Numbers Station, says Variety. He will appear opposite the previously announced Malin Akerman, apparently replacing the formerly attached Ethan Hawke.

Cusack will play a black ops agent who, thanks to past mistakes, has been given the bottom-level task of looking out for a CIA code station in the Nevada desert. Akerman will play a CIA code specialist who is stationed there when the place comes under attack.

Kasper Barfoed (The Candidate) will direct the project, written by F. Scott Frazier.

Cusack can next be seen in the Edgar Allen Poe thriller The Raven and in the ensemble drama The Paperboy.
