Aaron Eckhart has signed up to star in CIA action pic “Erased,” which is being unveiled to buyers at AFM.
Pic is executive produced by Essential Entertainment, which is also handling international sales on the title.
Eckhart will play a former CIA agent who hopes to make a fresh start with his estranged 15-year-old daughter.
