Eckhart battles LA

11.17.2008

Aaron Eckhart was in the biggest movie of the year and one of the biggest movies of all time and now he's finally getting his due. Eckhart has signed on to his first lead role in a big-budget action flick, the Sony sci-fi project BATTLE: LOS ANGELES. Eckhart will play Sgt. Nantz, a Marine who's sent in to kick some alien ass and take names. The film is basically the story of an alien invasion in Los Angeles because aliens are obviously going to invade LA first. Chris Bertolini wrote the script, which was originally described as CLOVERFIELD meets INDEPENDENCE DAY meets BLACK HAWK DOWN. Jonathan Liebesman (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2) will direct though no start date has been announced. Eckhart, who's still trying to get the bad taste of THE CORE out of his mouth, can be seen next in the Jennifer Aniston drama TRAVELING.

No need to apologize. I was not alluding to the Native Americans but those people who have come to this country (and LA) illegally.

If OBMULAP is a Native American, I want to formally apologize. Not for my remark but for stealing the country from your ancestors.

Eckhart had the lead role in Thank You For Smoking and that movie was pretty successful plus funny. This movie sounds cool but the first trailer will confirm that, sounds like some serious effects too.

Sounds like Duke Nukem

Hopefully, it will be entertaining and not like the horrible The Core.

Obmulap...HAHAHAHA. Witty remark. In the words of Jack White, "Why don't you kick yourself out? You're an immigrant too!"
This is awesome news. I love "the Chin" and I love aliens.

Marines battling aliens?! ZOMG! That'd be a totally sweet and original idea for a video game.


C'Mon, Eckhart... Surely you've got better scripts to choose from now.

I think flicks like THANK YOU FOR SMOKING and this little film, you may have heard of it, called THE DARK KNIGHT, have washed the bad taste of THE CORE out of his mouth. I had forgotten about that until you brought it up.

But Eckhart as a Marine kicking alien ass? I'm so there.

One dis-agreement

He has already had a lead role in a big-budget sci-fi movie. It was called The Core. Just bc it sucked doesnt mean it didnt happen.
