Atonement director Joe Wright is in negotiations for Focus Features' action-adventure thriller Hanna, which has had Danny Boyle and Alfonso Cuaron circling it in recent weeks.
Heat Vision describes the project as La Femme Nikita meets Jason Bourne. The story centers on a 14-year-old Eastern European girl 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.
Seth Lochhead and David Farr worked on the script.
