Ethan Hawke

Writer-director Andrew Niccol's next film is set, with Ethan Hawke in talks to star in the thriller. This would mean a re-teaming of the "Gattaca" and "Lord of War" helmer with his leading man. 

Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke in "Before Midnight"

This time around, Hawke would play a fighter pilot who becomes a Las Vegas drone pilot; he leads a double life fighting the Taliban, and carrying on as if all is normal at home with his wife and kids. He eventually has a crisis of conscience, wondering if he's in fact creating more terrorists than killing them.

The film is set for a February 1 production start.

Hawke has had a big year. Richard Linklater's "Before Midnight," the third film in the series charting the so-far 21 year romance between an American man (played by Hawke) and French woman (Julie Delpy), landed some of the strongest reviews of 2013. And horror film "The Purge," with Hawke headlining, made $63 million domestically -- not bad for a film that only cost $3 million.

Niccol's most recent films have been "In Time," starring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried, and Stephenie Meyer adaptation "The Host," starring Saoirse Ronan.
