michelle rodriguez Rodriguez, Pena & Moynahan Recruited for Battle: Los Angeles

Alien invasion action film Battle: Los Angeles is starting to fill out supporting roles around lead Dark Knight star, Aaron Eckhart.

Michelle Rodriguez, Michael Pena and Bridget Moynahan have all reportedly signed up for service in Jonathan Liebesman’s movie.

“[Battle: Los Angeles] revolves around a Marine staff sergeant (Eckhart) and his new platoon’s battle against an alien invasion on the streets of Los Angeles.”

The Hollywood Reporter says that Rodriguez will play Corporal Adriana Santos, who is a member of a radio battalion; Pena will portray the father of a boy the Marines find on their mission and Moynahan plays a veterinarian, who I presume has some insight into how the aliens exist.

Battle: Los Angeles is produced by Neil Moritz, the man behind The Fast and the Furious franchise (which incidentally stars Rodriguez) and Swat (which also stars Rodriguez).  I’m definitely sensing a pattern here.

Moritz said:

“I’m thrilled to reunite with Michelle. Her intensity is just right for the platoon.”

He does know that he’s making a film and not really going to war? Good. Just checking.

Michelle Rodriguez will next be seen in James Cameron’s low-budget offering (sarcasm alert!), Avatar.

Battle: Los Angeles starts shooting this fall.

  1. The picture above doesn’t look like Rodriguez to me. Maybe it’s the angle or lighting, but her face just doesn’t look right.

    This sounds like a good popcorn flick. I’m in.

  2. This film sounds awesome, and could you please find a picture where her shirt is just a tad bit higher(like above her shoulders).

  3. Jesus Bridgette needs to eat some bread. nasty a** hip bones.

  4. To be fair, that’s not exactly the best picture of Bridget Moynahan. Might I suggest to ScreenRant, that this one is much better:

    Now, I need to finish my comic strip for Friday. Curse you, ScreenRant, for distracting me with these pictures of hot women!

    Oh, and the movie sounds interesting. I might have to check that out.

  5. isn’t Bridget Tom Brady’s ex?
    This sounds like a fun movie. Hope it delivers on that aspect, being fun.

    The picture is somewhat better on the top half, but now it looks like she has a deformed chicken drumstick for a leg. Not saying she is ugly, she just needs to eat some bread is all.
