The project, which casts Eckhart as a disgraced cop on the hunt for a kidnapped daughter who only has 80 minutes to live, will be shot in real time.

The Solution Entertainment Group has secured a couple of major European deals for Live!, the Aaron Eckhart-starring actioner being co-directed and shot in real time by second-unit action helmers/stunt coordinators Darrin Prescott and Wade Allen.

Wild Bunch swooped in for Germany, while Key2Media Audiovisual took Spanish rights. Elsewhere, territories including South Korea, India, the Philippines, Taiwan, Turkey and South East Asia were secured for the film.

The project will see Eckhart play a disgraced cop on the hunt for a kidnapped daughter who only has 80 minutes to live.

Also on The Solution’s slate is the newly announced Truth in Advertising from Notting Hill director Roger Michell; the gender-reassignment thriller Tomboy, which has added Michelle Rodriguez and Sigourney Weaver to its cast; and Lizzie Borden, which has Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart circling.
