John Cusack is to star opposite Hilary Duff, Marisa Tomei and his sister Joan Cusack in a new political satire called 'Brand Hauser: Stuff Happens'.

Variety reports that John Cusack co-wrote and will produce the film.

It tells the story of an assassin (John Cusack) who is hired to kill a Middle East oil minister but finds that complications arise.

The film will begin shooting later this month in Bulgaria.
