Radius-TWC acquires ‘The Expatriate’

AFM title stars Aaron Eckhart, Olga Kurylenko

Radius-TWC has acquired domestic distribution rights to “The Expatriate” starring Aaron Eckhart.

Directed by Philipp Stolzl from Arash Amel’s script, pic centers on an ex-CIA agent and his daughter on the run when his employers mark them both for termination as part of a wide-reaching international conspiracy.

Olga Kurylenko and Liana Liberato also star with Jonathan Vanger, Claude Lenger and Karl Richards producing. Harry Winer, Judy Cairo and Michael Simpson are exec producing with Howard Meltzer.

International sales are still ongoing through Essential Media. A 2012 release date is likely.

“It’s ‘Bourne’ meets ‘Taken’ with Aaron Eckhart at his very best,” said Radius-TWC co-president Tom Quinn. “It’s perfect for us … I’m really excited about it and look forward to premiering it this fall.”

Quinn and Radius-TWC co-prexy Jason Janego brokered the deal on behalf of the label. CAA repped domestic rights on behalf of Informant Media, Smash Media Films and Essential Entertainment.

Radius-TWC, a distribution entity within The Weinstein Company, launched last year with an initial focus on VOD and emerging platforms. While the label has not yet decided on “Expatriate’s” rollout plan, pic will get both a theatrical and digital release.
