Helen Mirren and Aaron Paul will join Colin Firth in Gavin Hood’s upcoming drone thriller “Eye in the Sky” at Entertainment One and Raindog Films.
Mirren will star as Colonel Michelle Madden, a military intelligence officer in command of a top secret drone operation which aims to capture a group of dangerous terrorists in their safe-house in Nairobi.
BAFTA winner Guy Hibbert penned the script in which the mission hits complications when a nine-year-old girl enters the kill zone, prompting Madden to consult with the British foreign secretary.
Paul plays an American drone pilot. Firth’s character hasn’t been revealed. Filming is slated to begin in South Africa in August.
