Olga Kurylenko Targets The Expatriate
On the trail of Aaron Eckhart

14 April 2011  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Variety

Aaron Eckhart's current action-heavy run is continuing as we speak with The Expatriate, and he's just gained his principal antagonist in Olga Kurylenko

The ex-Quantum of Solace girl and lucky survivor of both Hitman and Max Payne will play a CIA spook tasked with bringing in her ex-partner Eckhart, with the slight complicating factor that they were also lovers at one point.

Also just cast is Trust's Liano Liberato, who'll be playing Eckhart's estranged daughter, who learns some sudden truths about her father's dark past when she thought he was just a dull corporate security guard. Just like True Lies, but with a different relationship and probably less stripping.

Philipp Stolzl is directing Arash Amel's original screenplay, and shooting is currently underway in Montreal before production shifts to Brussels next month.
