"Why would someone you work with try to kill us?"
Journey along with an ex-CIA agent and his daughter who are forced to go on the run in Europe after being targeted for termination.
The Flick: Erased (formerly The Expatriate)
The Skinny: Philip Stölzl (Young Goethe In Love) directed Erased from a script by Arash Amel, who is currently working on writing the sequel to I Am Legend. Shot in 2011, the movie premiered in Belgium in September 2012, but its U.S. release was delayed by high rates of piracy following its release in France.
The Players: Aaron Eckhart stars as Ben Logan, an ex-CIA agent who left the firm six months ago to take a job as a security adviser for a multinational corporation based in Europe. Everything's going fine for Ben until he goes to work one day and finds that the office has been completely cleaned out and all of his co-workers have vanished. To make matters worse, Ben and his estranged daughter (Liana Liberato) are forced to go on the run when his former employer targets them both for termination as part of a deadly international conspiracy. Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) also stars.
