Saoirse Ronan, one of Hollywood's most promising young actresses, has just been cast in Kevin Macdonald's HOW I LIVE NOW, the director's dramatic WWII follow-up to this year's THE EAGLE.

According to Variety, Ronan will play "Daisy, a teenage girl from New York City who travels to England to spend the summer with family in the English countryside. When World War II breaks out and insurgents invade, Daisy and a younger girl named Piper must survive alone in the woods as they try to make it to safety." The film will come written by Macdonald's EAGLE and LAST KING OF SCOTLAND scribe Jeremy Brock, and Terry Gilliam collaborator Tony Grisoni (TIDELAND, FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS).

Having already kicked some major ass in HANNA this year, one of 2011's best films, Ronan will likely next be seen killing even more people in Geoffrey Fletcher's teenage assassin flick VIOLET & DAISY (where oddly enough she'll be playing another 'Daisy'). She's currently filming on Neil Jordan's BYZANTIUM and will later topline Andrew Niccol's THE HOST.

Is Hannah that great of a movie? So tempted to buy it on blu ray, but to me it looks like it could go either way on how good or bad the movie is.
