James Gandolfini joins Saoirse Ronan and Carey Mulligan in teenage assassin drama Violet & Daisy

When we last talked about VIOLET & DAISY, we had no clue what it was about except that it would be starring Saiorse Ronan and Carey Mulligan, and that it would sort of be like "THELMA & LOUISE meets SUPERBAD with a helping of PULP FICTION" with "plenty of action, and lots of girl power." Okay, then.

Thankfully, new information and casting has come down the pike for the film from writer/director Geoffrey Fletcher (who won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for PRECIOUS). Former Soprano and Wild Thing James Gandolfini joins the aforementioned Ronan and Mulligan, as well as Bruce Willis and Danny Trejo who were cast last month.

The story "centers on a pair of teenage assassins who are lured into what is supposed to be just another quick and easy job, only to find complications as the man (Gandolfini) they're supposed to kill is not whom they expected. Ronan is to play one of the hitgirls, and Gandolfini the target of the assassins."

Filming on VIOLET & DAISY is set to begin at the end of the month in New York.
Extra Tidbit: VIOLET & DAISY is not to be confused with Joe Wright's HANNA, another "teenage assassin" drama that also happens to be starring Saiorse Ronan.
