Trailer & Poster: Emile Hirsch & John Cusack Star In The Action Thriller PURSUIT

For better or for worse, Movies In Focus will watch anything starring John Cusack. That’s means I’ll be giving Pursuit a go when it hit select US cinema screens and On Demand on 18 February 2022. 

Directed by Brian Skiba, the action-thriller also stars Emile Hirsch, Jake Manley and Elizabeth Ludlow. The trailer makes Pursuit look like a nuts and bolts thriller, but I’m hoping that Cusack brings something interesting to the table (aside from his usual black fashion ensemble). 

The synopsis:

John Cusack (Grosse Pointe Blank) and Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild) star in this action thriller about a tough cop’s hunt for an even tougher criminal. Detective Breslin crosses paths with Calloway (Hirsch), a ruthless hacker desperate to find his wife, who has been kidnapped by a drug cartel. When Calloway escapes police custody, Breslin joins forces with a no-nonsense female cop to reclaim his prisoner. But is Calloway’s crime-boss father (Cusack) somehow involved in this explosive situation?
