Aaron Eckhart is set to return to the Oval Office in the upcoming action feature “Raider,” directed by Simon West of “Con Air” and “Expendables 2” fame. Penned by J. Craig Stiles, the film is produced by Bee Holder Productions and Concourse Media, with Concourse handling sales.

In “Raider,” Eckhart portrays a newly inaugurated U.S. president who uncovers a startling truth: the White House has been under the control of an elite shadow organization for decades.

Refusing to yield to their demands, the president, with the aid of the Secret Service head played by Danny Huston, embarks on a quest to decipher cryptic messages left by his predecessors. He hopes to liberate his family and the nation from the grip of dark forces.
