Joe Wright's Hanna gets Eric Bana

02.05.2010
Looks like Eric Bana will be making a return to action. The hunky Aussie actor and funnyman will be cast as Saoirse Ronan's father in director Joe Wright's teenage assassin film HANNA.

According to THR's Heat Vision blog, the film "tells the story of a 14-year-old Eastern European girl saved from a CIA breeding camp and raised by her dad to be a cold-blooded killing machine. After finding peace with a French family, the girl is dragged back to her fatherís world, and she must fight her way to a free life." As our own Paul Tassi pointed out back in November, this sounds a little like LEON and Hit-Girl, though knowing Joe Wright's predilections, probably a lot more earnest. It will, however, be interesting to see how the excellent Saoirse Ronan (THE LOVELY BONES, ATONEMENT) will play a cold-blooded f*cking assassin.

Expect HANNA to be released sometime in 2011.

The question here is whether Wright can do action. If he can, or if he gets a solid action director, this sounds great.

"CIA breeding camp?" WTF? I know the CIA does bad things to people...but I don't even know what that means?

Not sure I'm down with this film or not-BUT, Bana was VERY impressive as the Romulan heavy in 2009's "Star Trek".
