Malin Akerman and Ethan Hawke to star in The Numbers Station
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Malin Akerman and Ethan Hawke are teaming up to star in THE NUMBERS STATION for director Kasper Barfoed. The film is about a disgraced black-ops agent that gets sent to the middle of the Nevada desert to protect a young woman. But it quickly turns out that it’s not just another dead-end job when they come under heavy attack and must fight their way out. Hawke will play the agent and Akerman will play the woman in need of protection.
The film sounds very reminiscent of THE BODYGUARD, but with a black-ops twist to it. I’ve always enjoyed bodyguard themed films, so even though the basic plot of THE NUMBERS STATION doesn’t sound too enlightening, it should make for some cool action and maybe even some good drama between Hawke and Akerman. And obviously, we need more information as to what exactly “numbers station” actually means in this context. Malin Akerman can next be seen in THE ROMANTICS.
