Aaron Eckhart Will Fade Out
In psychological thriller for Robert Salerno

Aaron Eckhart

Last time we saw Aaron Eckhart he was handcuffed to a railing inside the White House situation room in Olympus Has Fallen. Call us old-fashioned but we think an actor of his calibre - the erstwhile Harvey Dent, no less - deserves better treatment, which is hopefully what his new thriller Fade Out will provide.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, it's a Hitchcockian potboiler that'll see Eckhart's character recovering from a nervous breakdown in a beachside villa with a stunning wife to tend his brow and make him tasty cocktails. As his recovery progresses, he starts work on a screenplay in which a cuckolded husband murders his cheating wife. Guess what? Life begins to imitate art, as the screenwriter loses his grip on what's real and what isn't.

Fade Out is the debut feature of Robert Salerno, a veteran producer behind Oscar-worthy dramas such as Arbitrage and A Single Man. In turn, Enough Said producer Anthony Bregman will be overseeing things alongside Naomi Despres.

"[It's] as irresistible as a potent Caribbean cocktail: a twisted mind-bending thriller set in a sun-soaked beach town - from a smart script full of surprising twists, and with true artists in front of and behind the camera,” said Bregman.

Pulitzer Prize winner and The Witches Of Eastwick screenwriter Michael Cristofer is the man behind the script. Shooting kicks off in Puerto Rico in February. There's no word yet on casting for the stunning wife, but we doubt a gorgeous woman will be too hard to find in Hollywood's acting community.
