Saoirse Ronan is Hanna The Assassin

Saoirse Ronan is Hanna The Assassin

Saoirse Ronan is ready for spring in a lovely white dress with floral overlay as she attends the BAFTA/LA 16th Annual Awards Season Tea Party held at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday afternoon (January 16).

The 15-year-old starlet will be reteaming with Atonement director Joe Wright to star in the upcoming Hanna as the title character.

THR reports the story follows a 14-year-old Eastern European girl (Ronan) who has been raised by her father to be a cold-blooded killing machine. She connects with a French family, forms a friendship with their daughter and goes through the pangs of adolescence. When the girl is dragged back to her father’s world and discovers that she was bred as a killing machine in a CIA prison camp, she must fight her way to a free life.

    Whoa. Glad Saoirse and Joe Wright are teaming up again. Both are amazing. Hanna sounds like on helluva a role…glad she got it.

    I love how she knows when to dress up and when to just be relaxed. She had on a lovely dress at the CCA, and here she has on a nice little floral dress for this occasion. Plus she dresses her age!

    I agree Hanna sounds interesting, will be great to see her kicking some butt and taking names. Really talented actress.

    Oh my god when did she grew up that much? O_O Last time I saw her she still looked like a little kid. She’s gorgeous.

    There is no other teenage actress better equipped than Saoirse Ronan to play this role.. In her next project she plays a young Russian girl on the run in The Way Back.. Look at the stills from that, and tell me she doesn’t look Russian? Playing an eastern european assassin would be no problem, with her talent.. Looking forward to it !
