SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A new movie starring Ethan Hawke and January Jones is set to film in New Mexico.
New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis says Voltage Pictures and Sobini Films are producing the feature "Good Kill," which is about a Las Vegas military pilot who begins to question his mission after he is assigned to pilot a remote controlled drone to fight the Taliban 12 hours a day.
Principal photography will begin at the end of February and the project will shoot through March.
Maniatis says the production will be comprised of 95 percent residents, employing about 140 New Mexico crew members, 15 New Mexico actors and 200 local background talent.
