Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) will star in Battle: Los Angeles, a sci-fi action feature that Jonathan Liebesman will direct for Columbia.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story was written by Chris Bertolini, and revolves around a Marine platoon's encounter in the battle on the streets of Los Angeles against an alien invasion.

Eckhart will play the platoon leader in the film, which has yet to set a start date.
