The trailer for Hanna, starring Saoirse Ronan, has arrived online!
This action thriller comes from the director of Pride and Prejudice and Atonement, Joe Wright. However, in Hanna he’s ditched Keira Knightly as his favourite leading lady, and cast up-and-coming Irish actress Saoirse Ronan in the title role.
Ronan is virtually unrecognisable since we last saw her as the spindly Susie Salmon in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Lovely Bones. Hanna sees her take on the role of an ex-CIA agent’s daughter, who is brought up to possess the skills of a lethal assassin. As she goes solo on the greatest mission of her life, she begins to build a relationships with a French family, who offer the allure of a more conventional lifestyle.
Also, barely recognisable, is Cate Blanchett playing fierce red-headed intelligence worker Marissa Wiegler. They’re also joined by ex-Incredible Hulk, Eric Bana, who is also reportedly in talks to star in the upcoming film, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
Aside from what looks to be great performances from all three, this film will also boast a soundtrack scored by none other than the Chemical Brothers. With both Danny Boyle and Alfonso Cuarón (Y Tu Mamá También, Children of Men, Harry Potter) having previously shown interest in directing before Wright signed on, we suspect there might be a rather good script too!
Hanna is due to be released in UK cinemas on 8th April 2011 – but for now you can check out the trailer below!
