Aaron Eckhart To Star In ‘Battle: Los Angeles’

Published 6 years ago by , Updated August 18th, 2013 at 6:06 pm,

Aaron Eckhart has been signed to play the lead in Battle: Los Angeles, a science-fiction action flick to be directed by Jonathan Liebesman (whose biggest project is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning).

The plot of this film revolves around a platoon of marines (commanded by Eckhart) fighting aliens in the middle of Los Angeles…


Iā€™m sold on just the plot alone – adding Eckhart to the mix makes it that much better.

Eckhart is coming off a huge role in The Dark Knight which has grossed only about a billion dollars worldwide… and now he’s expected to take on high-profile A-list roles.

Apparently the script for Battle: LA didn’t get very high praise so some wonder why he took on this role. I however, do not. While the director certainly doesn’t have an impressive resume, I’m not going to hold that against him until I see what he can do with this project.

I’m very happy that Eckhart has received some massive spotlight attention by being a part of Nolan’s Batman franchise – he certainly deserves it. I’ve always been a big fan of his and while continually playing diverse roles, he never fails to deliver a solid performance. I voted for Harvey Dent.:-)

What do you think about this film?

Battle: Los Angeles does not have a start date yet but we’re looking at a probable 2010 release.

  1. I think this sounds like Independence Day 2. I’m wondering if this is a film that he is doing to just keep himself busy and get a paycheck.

  2. Also sounds a bit like Predator 2, also!!

  3. Don’t know why but this movie doesn’t excite me at all.


  4. sounds fun
    wonder what style it will be
    and i dont think aaron needs a paycheque he can get roles anywhere

  5. Really Vic? I hope you eat those words come 2010 šŸ˜‰

    I wonder what the aliens will look like – Will it be gruesome and serious? or a little more witty and charming (like Independence Day)
