A rogue insurgent assassinates foreign journalists and makes it look like the CIA is responsible. Coaxed out of retirement to clear the agency’s name, a deadly operative must confront his checkered past while unraveling an international conspiracy.

The Bricklayer stars Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) and Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries.
Directed by Renny Harlin who has directed numerous action classics such as Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger, and Deep Blue Sea.

Eckhart is also not a stranger to action films, having previously played an American president in peril in both Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen. He also portrayed an alien-fighting U.S. soldier in Battle: Los Angeles, and among his most iconic roles is likely that of the villainous Two-Face in Christopher Nolan’s ‚The Dark Knight‘. Dobrev is best known for her roles on the television series The Vampire Diaries.

„The composition and execution fit the series perfectly, but the score retains a distinct character and voice that elevates it in a rare feat of complementary memorability.“



Will be released in the beginning of 2024 and made available on all major platforms.
The music features recordings of a lush orchestra, enriched with propelling synths and driving beats.
