Cusack is a fallen black ops agent whose only chance to prove his credibility is to guard a code operator and prevent attackers from launching their deadly mission.
John Cusack is back into action in the first trailer for "The Numbers Station". Channeling his inner cold-blooded agent persona, Cusack doesn't hesitate to assassinate his enemies while on duty. He teams up with code operator Malin Akerman in what seems to be a top secret duty to prevent a group of attackers from executing their deadly plan.
Cusack stars as CIA black ops agent Emerson Kent. After his latest mission goes disastrously wrong, the veteran is given one last chance to prove he still has what it takes to do his job. His new assignment is guarding Katherine (Akerman), a code operator at a top-secret remote CIA "Numbers Station" where encrypted messages are sent and received.
When an elite team of heavily armed assailants lays siege to the station, Emerson and Katherine suddenly find themselves in a life-or-death struggle against an unknown enemy. With the station compromised and innocent lives at stake, they must stop the deadly plot before it's too late.
"The Numbers Station" will open Stateside on April 26. Also starring in the action thriller are Lucy Griffiths, Liam Cunningham, Hannah Murray, Richard Brake and Joey Ansah. Kasper Barfoed tackles the helming duty, while F. Scott Frazier works to pen the script.
