First look at the next teen girl assassin

04.23.2010

Below we have our first look at the heroine in the upcoming Joe Wright action-drama HANNA, which follows a teen girl trained by her father to be a ruthless assassin:

Are you the Salmon girl? Why yes, that is Saoirse Ronan, star of THE LOVELY BONES decked out in her finest Eskimo gear (the film actually takes place in the wilds of Sweden). Nothing about this pic really screams "assassin" or "action" but perhaps Focus Features is trying to distance Hanna from Hit Girl, that other teen girl who was mentored by her father to be a ruthless killer. The film co-stars Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett and is set for release later this year.

Extra Tidbit: In addition to being a ruthless assassin, she's also a fan of Justin Bieber.

Not only that, but this script was at the top of the 2009 blacklist, so it's probably going to be brilliant anyway.

I can't WAIT for this. Joe Wright, Saoirse Ronan who is by far the best young actress working today, and not to mention a fantastic supporting cast... I can't wait to see more!

Very cool! I thought when I clicked on this story that it was going to be about Kristen Stewart being in Wanted 2.

Ooh...this sounds nice. I liked her in The Lovely Bones, she brings that certain quality to her characters. And the premise for this gig sounds good, too. And just because you mentioned Justin Bieber, I'm gonna' go ahead and say that that sack of puberty-stricken horsesh!t can go ahead and suck it!

Never heard of this one until now.
Saoirse Ronan impressed me on LOVELY BONES and I'm def ready to see her tackling different roles like this one.

Somehow I hadn't heard of this but wow, sounds brilliant.
Saoirse was excellent in Bones and Atonement, Bana and Blanchett never hurt, and Joe Wright has a few great films under his belt. Can't wait for this now. Haven't heard of the writers though, one has written a few episodes for Spooks, which I still haven't got around to watching...

Hopefully the script is strong. I know Danny Boyle and Alfonso Cuaron both wanted to direct this film at one point...so there's gotta be something mighty appealing in there.
