John Cusack is an '80s superstar that has successfully avoided a late career slump. The active actor is set to star in 2012, a big budget apocalyptic thriller for Columbia Pictures.
The film is a futuristic sci-fi epic about an academic researcher who enters a parallel universe and locates his double, enlisting his help in preventing the apocalypse as it was predicted by the ancient Mayans. Cusack would play a writer and limo driver. Shooting is scheduled to start in July in Los Angeles, as long as there is no Screen Actor's Guild strike. The film would hit theaters in summer 2009 if all goes according to plan.
In the meantime, Cusack maintains his steady work schedule. This summer he can be seen in War, Inc., which he wrote and produced. He is also currently shooting Shanghai.
