“The Dark Knight” star Aaron Eckhart will star in the action thriller ‘Erased,” it was announced by Informant Media, Smash Media and Essential Entertainment at AFM on Thursday.
Philipp Stolzl (“North Face”) will direct from an original screenplay by A.E. Amel.
Eckhart stars as Ben Logan, a former CIA agent searching for a fresh start with his estranged 15-year-old daughter, Amy. After taking a job in Belgium as a security expert for a large multinational corporation, he arrives at the office one morning to find that all of his colleagues have vanished and his division no longer exists. After learning that his assistant is actually a trained operative intent on killing both him and his daughter, Ben and Amy flee, with a highly-trained kill squad in hot pursuit.
