John Cusack to Star in ‘Screwball’ Comedy Dictablanda


Because 2012 took itself too seriously for its goofiness to be considered screwball, John Cusack has signed on to star in Dictablanda, a new comedy from Argentinian filmmaker Alejandro Agresti. Cusack also co-wrote the script with Agresti, although the only thing we know about the plot is that it will involve “international mayhem.” So like 2012! Just admit that you’re making a comedic version of 2012, Cusack.
