Ethan Hawke has had a big year with the financially successful The Purge and the critically acclaimed Before Midnight, but now he is heading off to work with a familiar face. According to Deadline, Hawke is set to star in a new, still untitled film by director Andrew Niccol.
Niccol and Hawke have worked together previously in 1997's Gattaca and 2005's Lord Of War. In this new film, Hawke will play a military drone pilot who struggles to do his job when the reality of his actions dawns on him.
The film is scheduled to begin filming in February, 2014.
