good-killChristophe Beck has been tapped to score the upcoming drama Good Kill. The film is written and directed by Andrew Niccol and stars Ethan Hawke, January Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Jake Abel and Bruce Greenwood. The movie follows a troubled Air Force officer who is charged with directing drone strikes and enters a moral minefield as the rationale for targeting purported terrorists becomes ever more murky. Nicolas Chartier (The Hurt LockerThe Company You Keep), Zev Foreman and Mark Amin (Filth) are producing the Voltage Pictures production. Beck has previously co-scored the indie drama Charlie Countryman for Voltage. Niccol has previously collaborated with composers including Craig Armstrong (In Time), Antonio Pinto (Lord of War, The Host) and Michael Nyman (Gattaca). Good Kill is set to premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Also coming up for Beck is the family comedy Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, the comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and the action comedy Let’s Be Cops (co-scored with Jake Monaco), which is opening nationwide this coming Wednesday.
