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!
