Aaron Eckhart to Star in Spy Drama THE EXPATRIATE

Aaron Eckhart will star in Philipp Stolzl’s spy drama The Expatriate.  According to Deadline, Eckhart will play an ex-CIA agent “who hopes to make a fresh start with his estranged 15-year old daughter. He takes a job in Belgium as a security expert for a multinational corporation and arrives one day to find the corporation no longer exists, his coworkers are gone, and his assistant is really a trained operative out to kill him and his daughter. Father and daughter go on the run and must learn to trust each other, something that becomes difficult once she learns the truth about his shadowy past.”  The worst thing in all of this must be that all the work for the company softball team has been a complete waste.

When Steve spoke to Eckhart a couple weeks ago at the Scream Awards, Eckhart began to talk about the project, but was cut off by his publicist.  Eckhart will be seen later this year in the drama Rabbit Hole with Nicole Kidman.  He’s also starring in the sci-fi action flick Battle: Los Angeles, which is due out in March next year.
