Actress Alexis Bledel has joined the cast of the new Geoffrey Fletcher movie Violet and Daisy, according to Variety.

Alexis Bledel unites with Saoirse Ronan as the two title characters, teenage girls who are trained to become assassins. When they take what was supposed to be an easy job, they discover their target isn't quite the man they thought him to be. We reported last week that James Gandolfini had joined the cast of this movie as well. Bruce Willis and Carey Mulligan had previously been attached to star.

Oscar-winning screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher (Precious) will make his feature directorial debut on Violet and Daisy, directing from his own script. Production will start next week in New York City.
