Joe Wright & Saoirse Ronan's Hanna is being adapted into a TV series

Dammit. I could kick myself right now for never having made the time to watch Joe Wright's assassination thriller HANNA starring Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana, and Cate Blanchett. I don't know why I never got around to it, I suppose it just sort of fell into obscurity along with several other films I probably should have seen by now. Anyway, NBC Universal International Studios is digging into their catalog of films and is aiming down their sights at adapting HANNA into a television series. 

For those of you who have also missed out on the original film presentation, HANNA is the action-adventure thriller that tells the tale of a young girl (Ronan) raised in the wilderness of northern Finland by her father (Bana), an ex-CIA operative, who molds the tenderfoot into a most deadly assassin. Here's the thing though, a senior CIA agent (Blanchett) is on their trail, and is looking to eliminate both Hanna and her dear old dad for good. 

As of the moment there are no casting details or production start dates to speak of, though I'm sure we'll be hearing some updates in the coming months as preparations for the series begin to take shape. 

What do you Schmoes think? Have you seen HANNA? Should I watch it? Does the idea of the film being adapted into a series get your blood pumping? Let us know in the comments section below.

Meanwhile, you can watch the 2011 film version of HANNA right now, as the film is available on Digital, DVD, and Blu-Ray formats.

Extra Tidbit: I am currently working on a script for a graphic novel that is indeed an assassination love story called Marked for Death. Wish me luck!

It's called Hanna

They should have made a sequel to the movie Hanna (note title spelling).
I would watch the TV series, but someone other than Saoirse Ronan will
have big shoes to fill, and so, I a flop looks on the cards.

Like everyone else so far has said, go see Hannah. I didn't expect much from it, but was very surprised by it. It put Joe Wright on my map in a way that he had never been before, not because it was his best film, but because it so easily could have been a very crappy film that instead a very solid one. There have been plenty of good recent TV series based off of moves and on paper at least this one makes more sense that most, so I'm actually all for this.

i absolutely love HANNA and it's fantastic cast (especially Saoirse Ronan!). after being screwed by NBC way too many times now, i expect nothing from this tv version. in fact since it's on NBC it will probably be cancelled after 2 or 3 eps.

Hannah's a fantastic movie, but I can't trust NBC to deliver this kind of quality. Hannah is one of the few arthouse action films that delivers. Can't imagine the average TV viewer to be interested in the kind of entertainment Hannah is.

Hanna would actually make for a nice double feature with Logan. As for the tv show, not really interest. Seems like for every one good tv show adapted from a movie, there are 5 bad one.

Number one, yes watch Hanna. It's this incredible mix of action thriller, coming of age drama and grimm fairytale and manages to work with them all. Ronan gives arguably her best performance (my favourite anyway) and the soundtrack is incredible.

As for a TV series well aside from the fact that it's another fucking movie being turned into another fucking TV show like everything fucking else is... I'm iffy but leaning towards not liking it. I can see how they could extend the story to at

As for a TV series well aside from the fact that it's another fucking movie being turned into another fucking TV show like everything fucking else is... I'm iffy but leaning towards not liking it. I can see how they could extend the story to at least miniseries level due to a cross-country trip in the second act but this worked in the film because it gave Hanna a lull between her spouts of action, a moment to live a normal life for the first time in her life even if only for a few days. A TV show couldn't cover that, you'd either have four episodes of nothing happening or a constant stop/start routine with some random action scene to close out the episode that breaks the flow of the character. I'm a massive fan of the film but I believe it to be a flash in the pan, this combination of efforts to turn in something unlike anything else that shouldn't have worked as well as it did. I highly doubt a TV series could capture that again.
