Gavin Hood is in the midst of shooting his Ender’s Game follow-up, Eye in the Sky, in South Africa, but he’s already got some stills from the film to show off. The movie stars Helen Mirren as Colonel Katherine Powell, a military intelligence officer remotely leading a drone operation to track down terrorists in Nairobi. However, when Powell and co. come to realize that the terrorists are preparing for a suicide mission, it’s decided that the targets are to be taken out instead. Trouble is, just when pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is about to get the job done, he sees a nine-year-old girl walk right into the kill zone. Now he’s got to “pass the request for confirmation of the next step up to the highest levels,” which includes the foreign secretary played by Iain Glen.
