Recreating his role as a hitman, John Cusack gives a hilarious performance in "War, Inc.", a political satire set in Turaqistan, a Country occupied by an American private corporation run by a former U.S. Vice President (Dan Akroyd). In an effort to monopolize the opportunities the war-torn nation offers, the corporation's CEO hires Hauser (John Cusack) to kill a Middle Eastern oil minister.
Now, struggling with his own growing demons, the assassin must pose as the corporation's Trade Show Producer in order to pull off this latest hit, while maintaining his cover by organizing the high-profile wedding of Yonica Babyyeah (Hilary Duff), an outrageous Central Asian pop star, and keeping a sexy left-wing reporter (Marisa Tomei) in check.
