The 2nd helmer Brian Skiba is back on our radar to start the new year as Lionsgate revs up the campaign for his newest crime thriller, Pursuit. Skiba directs from a script he wrote with Andrew Stevens, along with Dawn Bursteen and Ben Fiore, for a starring cast that includes Emile Hirsch, Jake Manley, Elizabeth Ludlow and John Cusack.
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?
Pursuit gives chase in select theaters and on-demand beginning February 18 from Lionsgate!
