Fresh off his Oscar-nominated performance in “Boyhood” and his directorial debut “Seymour: An Introduction,” Ethan Hawke is keeping busy this year by re-teaming with director Andrew Niccol (“Gattaca,” “Lord of War”) for this summer’s drone warfare drama “Good Kill.” During one of Indiewire and Apple’s Tribeca Talks at the Apple Store in Soho, Manhattan, Hawke joined Niccol and co-stars January Jones and Zoe Kravitz to discuss the emotional conflict plaguing his character.

“Good Kill” tells the story of an Air Force pilot who comes to miss the contact of combat after being relegated to flying drones. Forced to fight using nothing but a remote controller for 12 hours a day, the pilot begins to question his mission and the very sate and purpose of modern warfare.

Be sure to check out the full panel on iTunes in either audio or video form. IFC Films will release “Good Kill” in theaters May 15.
