John Cusack's new action movie has been pulled due to lack of funds.

The Grosse Pointe Blank star, more used to starring in romantic comedies, was set to play a movie tough guy in Stopping Power--which was to be directed by Jan De Bont.

But the project, originally due for release next year, has now been scrapped. Cusack, 41, would have played a test pilot who embarks on a high-speed car chase to save his kidnapped daughter.

Production company Internationalmedia has declined to say which of the film's financiers has pulled out, indicating that it would pursue legal recourse.

A separate production subsidiary set up for the film, IM Stopping Power, has filed for insolvency as a result, reports Variety magazine.
