John Cusack files suit over 'Power'
Jan de Bont actioner halted last yearCOLOGNE, Germany -- Actor John Cusack and Cusack Enterprises have filed a $5.6 million suit in a Los Angeles Superior Court connected to Cusack's pay-or-play deal on shuttered project "Stopping Power."
Production was stopped on the Jan de Bont actioner last year after one of the film's main backers pulled out. This led to a budget shortfall that almost toppled Intermedia parent IM International Media.
IM was ultimately rescued by film financier David Bergstein, who acquired a 57% stake in IM for about $10 million.
