A Near Hour-Long Chase In Power

“Speed” helmer Jan de Bont’s “Stopping Power” has sold in a few overseas territories, and a domestic distributor is expected to be locked by next week reports Variety.

John Cusack stars as an American tourist whose daughter is kidnapped. An average dad who just happens to be an experienced test pilot, he engages in a cat and mouse hunt for his daughter.

The $50 million flick begins shooting in August in Berlin, but what makes it unique is that the last half of the film is a 51-minute, real-time chase involving cars, helicopters and jets.
