If gamers were ever to be recruited to fight for their country during wartime, the place they would likely be most useful is as drone pilots, which involves controlling a device capable of great damage and destruction from a remote location.
In the upcoming movie Good Kill, a former fighter pilot (Ethan Hawke) becomes a drone pilot, where he fights Taliban from a distance. The movie also stars Bruce Greenwood, Jake Abel, January Jones, and Zoe Kravitz, and is directed by Andrew Niccol.
A trailer for the movie has been released by Voltage Pictures, and you can check it out along with a better description of the movie below.
A fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot, based in Las Vegas, fights the Taliban by remote control for twelve hours a day, then goes home to the suburbs and feuds with his wife and kids for the other twelve. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he’s killing? Is he fighting a war without end? One soldier’s tale with epic implications.
