Hanna goes missing in teaser for Amazon's adaptation of the Joe Wright film

I don't think I've watched Joe Wright's HANNA since its release back in 2011, but I'll soon get to relive the story of a young girl trained to be an assassin by her father in Amazon's TV series of the same name. The first teaser for Hanna admittedly doesn't show much beyond a baby heist, but it does strike the tone for the upcoming series.

Said to be equal parts high-concept thriller and coming-of-age drama, Hanna will follow the journey of an extraordinary young girl, Hanna (Esme Creed-Miles), as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is. Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, who previously starred together in The Killing, will round out the main cast of Hanna, with Kinnaman playing Hanna's father, Erik, "a hardened, intuitive and uncompromising soldier and mercenary, who, for the past 15 years, has raised his daughter in the remote forests of northern Poland. Isolated from the world he once knew, he has trained Hanna in every method of survival, with his only goal, to keep her safe. But, his teenage daughter begins to seek freedom from the restricted haven he has created." Enos is playing Marissa, "an efficient and ruthless agent, having risen up the ranks of the CIA. However, beneath her cool exterior is a deeply buried secret that continues to haunt her. The reappearance of Hanna and her father Erik threaten to expose the past she has worked to repress." In a statement, HANNA co-writer David Farr, who returned to pen the TV series, said:

I’m thrilled that ‘Hanna’ has managed to attract a visionary director and actors of the calibre of Mireille and Joel to play our adult leads. And in Esme Creed-Miles I believe we have discovered a star of the future – she is going to be a very special Hanna. ‘Hanna’ aims to be both a raw-knuckle ride and a deeply touching family drama. It has the visceral excitement of a genuine conspiracy thriller but also the simple humanity of a rites of passage drama. Hanna is in a very unusual family. She’s a very special teenager. But all teenagers think they’re abnormal. She’s just a little more abnormal than most.

Hanna will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on March 2019.
