Written by A.E. Amel and directed by Philipp Stolzl will be the action thriller The Expatriate. In the starring role is actor Aaron Eckhart, who is most notable in The Dark Knight and Thank You for Smoking.

Playing Ben Logan, Eckhart is a former CIA agent who wants a new start with a daughter he has a rocky relationship with. Relocating to Belgium as a security expert for a corporation, he one day finds that his division no longer exists. Ben and his daughter Amy are forced to run when a squad is after them.

It’s great to see Aaron Eckhart in more starring roles. The man has a great stage presence and charisma; as evident in Thank You for Smoking. He’ll fit perfectly in the role of Ben Logan.
