Quote
Screen Media Films has acquired the U.S. rights for “Drone,” a new thriller with “Game of Thrones” star Sean Bean. The movie, directed by Jason Bourque, arrives in theaters and on digital platforms on May 26.

Bean plays a drone pilot who conducts covert operations from his suburban hometown. When a Pakistani businessman (Patrick Sabongui) shows up at his door vowing revenge, the family man with a secret must confront his past actions.

Bean’s credits also include “GoldenEye” and “The Fellowship of the Rings.” Sabongui has appeared in “Homeland” and in “Power Rangers.” The cast also includes Maxwell Haynes, Joel David Moore, and Mary McCormack. Paul A. Birkett and Bourque wrote the screenplay based on a story by Birkett, Roger Patterson, and Ian Birkett,
 Sefton Fincham and Ken Frith produced the movie. Kirk D’Amico, Levi Sheck, Mike Rowe, Justin Jacobson, Dean Buchanan, Emily Alden, Kevin D. Forester, and Lisa Gutberlet served as executive producers. The pic was backed by Look to the Sky Films and Gold Star Productions, in association with Daylight Media and Pacific Northwest Pictures.

The deal was negotiated by Seth Needle, senior VP of worldwide acquisitions at Screen Media Films, with Myriad Pictures’ D’Amico on behalf of the filmmakers. Myriad Pictures is also handling worldwide sales on the film.

Drone Movie trailer
Quote
You may watch below the first official trailer of Drone, the upcoming thriller movie directed by Jason Bourque and starring Sean Bean, Patrick Sabongui, Joel David Moore, and Mary McCormack
Plot synopsis:
“Drone pilot and family man Neil (Sean Bean) has spent his career conducting deadly, covert missions overseas all from the comfort of his suburban hometown. When an enigmatic, Pakistani businessmen (Patrick Sabongui) shows up at his home seeking revenge, Neil must confront the consequences of his actions.”

Let’s hope Sean Bean will manage to kill that terrorist and save himself and his family!

Anyway, here’s a new teaser poster:

Sean Bean Operates a ‘Drone’ in First Trailer for Military Thriller
Quote
“What’s topical right now?,” a frenzied studio executive says. “DRONES!,” an intern screams. Just like that, so comes the first trailer for Drone, a thriller led by the forever-dying-on-screen Sean Bean as the operator of the titular death-dealing machine, Neil, whose world is spun around when a man whose wife and son were killed in a drone strike shows up for dinner. As tension mounts, Neil must try to keep his occupation a secret and his family safe.

The most problematic aspect of this trailer is that the man who shows up seems to threaten Neil and his family with a bomb, which seems like a xenophobic assertion and oversimplification of the grief felt by those impacted from U.S. military action. With the film arriving next month, we’ll see if it can upend those expectations soon. See the trailer below with a nod to FirstShowing.

Neil (Sean Bean) is a private drone contractor who spends his workdays flying covert missions then returns to a family life of suburban mediocrity – without his wife or son knowing about his secret life – until a whistle-blowing site exposes him to a deadly threat. Believing he is responsible for the deaths of his wife and child, an enigmatic Pakistani businessman (Patrick Sabongui) tracks him down, leading to a harrowing confrontation.

Drone will hit theaters on May 26th.

I have to say. The trailer impressed the hell out of me. It actually looks very good so far, with a lot of emotion behind it. This could be up there with Black Death and Cleanskin in terms of fantastic indie films! I was expecting garbage like Wicked Blood or Soldiers of Fortune... I hope it is great! He seems to hide his accent better in this than in Any Day (so far anyway).

Having seen Bourque's Black Fly, I have high hopes for this.

Hmm... Soldiers are really total garbage, but why Wicked Blood? Quite decent film, as it seems to me.

Wicked Blood was okay, in my opinion, but Sean was wasted in Soldiers of Fortune. (What was the director thinking?) Age of Heroes was much better.

If to look Soldiers, as comedy, then OK.
Age of Heroes - I did not like, but I at all not quite like foreign films about WWII, sorry. At that entirely slurred ending of the role Sean.

Oh, continuous off top. I finalise

Haha... no worries. As long as it is about Sean, it's not really off-topic.

Drone Trailer Places Sean Bean In Control Of An Ideological Missile
Quote
Sean Bean stars in Drone, the new military thriller from director and co-writer Jason Bourque which sees the actor playing Neil, the blank-faced operator of a deadly drone that drops bombs in the Middle East.

As shown in the newly released trailer, Neil is a private drone contractor who appears callous in his destructive missions overseas, only to return to his family to live out a familiar suburban life with his wife and son. The movie itself is about Neil facing the unexpected consequences of his actions when a Pakistani businessman (played by Patrick Sabongui) shows up on his doorstep with a briefcase and perhaps some bad intentions.

From there, Drone checks off the list of quick cuts and rapid escalation that you’d expect from a psychological thriller, but it’s made even more poignant and uncomfortable by how increasingly relevant this topic has become in lieu of recent events (there’s even a whistleblowing, WikiLeaks-esque factor). For that reason, audiences will likely be split on the implications of a film that appears to position the victims of American drone attacks in outlandish ways that might fuel xenophobia. Or they might just enjoy the movie as a commentary on American foreign policy dating back the last 8 years.

Either way, Drone appears to be an explosive indie that will have many people talking, for better or worse, about issues that continue to be massively polarizing in the US and abroad. It’s not clear yet how its controversial subject matter will impact its critical reception and box office business, but we’ll know soon enough as it premieres on April 17 at the Vancouver Film Festival. For the rest of us, Drone will open for a wider release on May 26.

Oooooh trailer gave me chills.  Looks like excellent acting by everyone.  I agree he is hiding his accent better than in Any day.  I don't know why it was so bad in that movie - I feel like he did better in other movies with the American accent.  I can't wait to see it!!!!
