John Cusack is attached to star in Jan de Bont’s action thriller “Stopping Power” for Intermedia Films. Skip Woods (“Swordfish”) will write “Power” with Eric Red (“The Hitcher”) says The Hollywood Reporter.
Cusack is set to star as a test pilot who sets off on a series of high-speed chases to save his kidnapped daughter from an escaped thief.
The film is one of six new projects that Intermedia will be offering at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Others include Agnieszka Vosloo’s “After.Life” with Kate Bosworth, Jodie Markell’s adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ “The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond,”, and Simon Crane’s hired assassin thriller “The Killer’s Game.”
