John Cusack is set to star in the screwball comedy of manners "Dictablanda" ("Soft Dictator") for Pampa Films and New Crime Productions reports Variety.
The title is a piece of political terminology used to describe dictatorships with a high regard for civil liberties.
Alejandro Agresti ("The Lake House") directs from a script he co-wrote with Cusack, Morris and Paul Hipp. Cusack, Pablo Bossi and Kevin Morris are producing.
The film is being shot on location in Buenos Aires and Mar de Ajo, Argentina throughout March and April.
