Sean Bean Faces Consequences of Remote Airstrike in Tense Trailer for Revenge Thriller 'Drone' (Exclusive)
As debate rages on about the ethical and moral ramifications of drone warfare, a new thriller starring Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings, The Martian) imagines the consequences of one such strike. In Drone (watch the exclusive trailer above), Bean plays Neil, a seemingly average suburban family man whose secret day job as a military contractor includes orchestrating pilot-less air attacks.
After a whistleblowing website exposes Neil’s identity, he’s visited by Imir, a Pakistani businessman (Patrick Sabongui) posing as a suitor interested in buying Neil’s boat. In truth, Imir’s wife and teenage daughter were civilian casualties in a missile attack launched by Neil, and Imir has come to handle a different type of business, setting the stage for a tense standoff between the two men.
