John Cusak, 2012 & 200 Million Bucks

John Cusack is lucky he only played Rap on his boom box. If he had played the 2012 Prophecy, I am almost certain Ione Skye wouldn't have just gone back to sleep. She would have called the cops.

Below is a little info 2012 the Movie:


John Cusack as Jackson Curtis, a science fiction book writer who occasionally works as a limousine driver.[9]
Amanda Peet as Kate, Jackson's ex-wife.[10]
Danny Glover as President Wilson, the President of the United States.[3]
Thandie Newton as Laura Wilson, the First Daughter.[3]
Oliver Platt as Carl Anheuser, the President's Chief of Staff.[3]
Chiwetel Ejiofor as Adrian Helmsley, scientific advisor to the President.[9]
Woody Harrelson as Charlie Frost,[11] a man who prophesies the end of the world and is considered crazy by others. Alex Jones claimed in an interview with Eric "Mancow" Muller that Harrelson told him that Frost's character was based on him.[12] Harrelson compared his character to the mythological Greek figure Cassandra, whose predictions were dismissed.[13]
Ng Chin Han as Lin Pang, a worker in Tibet.[6]
Thomas McCarthy as Gordon, Kate's current boyfriend and a plastic surgeon.[14]
Liam James as Noah Curtis, Jackson and Kate's son.
Morgan Lily as Lilly Curtis, Jackson and Kate's daughter.[15]


Director Roland Emmerich and composer-producer Harald Kloser co-wrote a spec script titled 2012, which was marketed to major studios in February 2008. Nearly all studios met with Emmerich and his representatives to hear the director's budget projection and story plans, a process that the director had previously gone through with the films Independence Day (1996) and The Day After Tomorrow (2004).[2] The film was shopped around with a production budget of $200 million.[3] Later that month, Sony Pictures Entertainment won the rights for the spec script, planning to distribute it under Columbia Pictures.[4] The studio planned to make the film for less than the estimated budget.[3]

Filming was originally scheduled to begin in Los Angeles, California, in July 2008,[5] but instead commenced in Vancouver in August 2008.[6] Due to the possible 2008 Screen Actors Guild strike, filmmakers set up a contingency plan for salvaging the film.[7] Sony Pictures Imageworks was hired to create visual effects for 2012.[8]. Thomas Wander co-wrote the score with Harald Kloser.
