Aaron Eckhart prepping to fight Aliens

by Joey Paur

It looks like Aaron Eckhart is set to star in the new sci-fi movie being made 'Batttle: Los Angeles'. For the fist time Eckhart will take the lead role in a action movie. He has mostly taken the lead in smaller indie films and usually plays a secondary character in the bigger movies. As you know he played Two-Face in the Dark Kight and did a great job.  THR reports:

The story, written by Chris Bertolini, revolves around a Marine platoon's encounter in the battle on the streets of Los Angeles against an alien invasion. Eckhart will play the platoon leader in the film, which has yet to set a start date.

So like it will be allot of fun! The movie is being made over at Columbia Pictures and Jonathan Liebesman will be directing the film. He has directed films like 'Darkness Falls' and 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning'. Not a very impressive resume, but this will be his biggest movie to date so it will be interesting to see what he does with it.
