Bana's in Hanna

Director Joe Wright is following up on the disappointing The Soloist with a seeming departure in the form of Hanna, the story of a teenage girl raised by her ex-CIA father in Finland to be an assassin. The film stars Saoirse Ronan as Hanna and Eric Bana as the father (as well as Cate Blanchett as the villain, who, according to Bana "brings the whole film down.) It sounds like an interesting idea, described by Ronan as a "fairy tale mixed with action," and there's a whole storyline about Hanna adjusting to a world she doesn't know that sounds like it's right in Wright's wheelhouse.

Written by 24-year-old Seth Lochhead, after a gap year backpacking through Europe hallucinating on absinthe (according to Wright, though he MAY be joking), Hanna will be released on April 8, 2011.
