So, earlier this year word started circulating that MGM was looking to make a sequel to "Hot Tub Time Machine." We all rolled our eyes and signed, but it appears that this thing is actually moving forward...but without one key player, while another rising funnyman is swapping in....

John Cusack has been making some interesting career twists and turns, last year starring in projects as diverse as the Gothic procedural "The Raven" and the Southern pulp "The Paperboy." Recently at the Tribeca Film Festival, his latest turn as a curmudgeonly but brilliant writer in "Adult World" was unveiled. And this weekend we'll see the actor move back into thriller mode with "The Numbers Station," and we've got an exclusive clip from the movie to share.

The very first scene of "Adult World" should immediately set off warning bells. It's a glimpse of heroine Amy (Emma Roberts) as she contemplates suicide in much the same way someone goes about stacking bills; without weight, as if it's something of an eternal hassle. Except her worried countenance and the Sylvia Plath poster on the wall suggests she's being serious, and that this is supposed to be mildly funny that someone is sweating the details of suicide, even though this character already looks as if she's not taking this seriously. It's a confused way to introduce the audience to a character, as both suicidal and half-hearted.

We have to admit, we were kinda worried. Last month, Rachel Weisz dropped out of David Cronenberg's brewing "Maps To The Stars," the project that would reteam him with his "Cosmopolis" lead Robert Pattinson. The plan was to shoot the movie next month, but with Cronenberg recently taking a role in "I Am Love" helmer Luca Guadagnino's adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel "The Body Artist," lensing this summer, we wondered about the status of 'Maps.' Turns out, we have nothing to worry about.

The project has been gestating for a number of years, but it looks like things are really moving forward with “Love & Mercy,” the biopic on Brian Wilson. This past January, Paul Dano signed on to play Wilson as a young man. Now, John Cusack is in discussions to play the older version of the legendary Beach Boys frontman.

One actor who made our feature Fire Your Agent: 10 Actors Who Need A Change Of Career Direction was John Cusack, and his upcoming "The Numbers Station" pretty much illustrates why he belongs on that list. Yet another generic thriller (once slated to star Ethan Hawke instead), this is the latest in a string of genre efforts by the actor that are as bland as they are interchangeable.

Here’s a movie that won’t make a cent in any international markets – John Cusack is hard at work developing a biopic of the controversial, right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh. The project has a working title of “Rush” and is being produced by Cusack’s own production company (New Crime Productions), with Cusack also in line to star in the lead role. Because, sure, that makes sense…we can totally see the resemblance.
