Here is our first look at 16 year old Saoirse Ronan who starred in Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones as a teenage assassin in her next film Hanna. Ronan plays the title character in the film, who is raised from childhood to be the perfect assassin by her ex-CIA daddy played by Eric Bana in rural Finland. Cate Blanchett also co-stars in the film as an intelligence operative overseeing Hanna's mission.
The movie is described as a Jason Bourne meets La Femme Nikita thriller, and it was directed by Joe Wright who was the director behind Atonement, which was actually a very good film.
I really liked the directors work in Atonement, and I think this new film, Hanna, is going to be a great story for him to tell. I guess child assassins are finally getting noticed in Hollywood. This film Hanna, is going to be more of a serious film than Kick-Ass though.
She looks like a bad ass little girl in the photo below.
