In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Saoirse Ronan is in talks to re-team with director Joe Wright (they previously collaborated on the film Atonement) to play the title character in Hanna for Focus Features.
Hanna 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 wrote the screenplay for this project.
