It’s been a few years since news of this film stirred about but word out of Toronto has it that Escape Plan 2: Hades helmer Steven C. Miller’s Line Of Duty is setting up a November release from Saban Films.
Line Of Duty follows Eckhart in the role of Frank Penny, a disgraced cop who finds himself in a race against time to find a kidnap victim whose abductor he accidentally killed. Also starring are Courtney Eaton (Mad Max: Fury Road), Dina Meyer (Starship Troopers), Giancarlo Esposito (The Maze Runner trilogy) and Ben McKenzie (Gotham).
Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley commented, “This fast-paced thriller is action-packed and bound to captivate audiences and keep them on their toes. It’s a testament to Steven’s skills as a filmmaker and the cast, led by Aaron, give stunning performances.”
Solution’s Nestel added, “We are excited to continue our long-standing relationship with Saban as our US distributor on the title. Steven knocked the film out of the park and Aaron gives a tour-de-force performance as Frank Penny.”
Line Of Duty hails from The Solution Group who produced the film and represent world sales on the pic. Eckhart is slated to appear in Roland Emmerich’s WWII epic, Midway on November 8 from Lionsgate. (DEADLINE)
