We now know that Ronan and Bledel will play a pair of teenage assassins, who find that their last assignment is not all that they thought it would be (when is it ever?) and tonally, the film is pitching itself (as we said in our previous post) as a blend of Superbad, Thelma & Louise and Pulp Fiction. The shots below were taken during on-location shooting in New York, though we do not know yet how long shooting will continue for, or when the film is due for release.
The Playlist also took the time to feed more information about Ronan’s other current project, namely “Hanna”, which reunites her with her “Atonement” director, Joe Wright. In a bizarre, typecasting-baiting move, Ronan will play a teen assassin in Hanna as well. Here’s the lowdown:-
Starring Ronan along with Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett, the film follows a teenage assassin as she journeys across Europe after being sent on a mission by her father, while eluding enemy agents. Our script review described it as a “super taut, on-the-run thriller that not only has adrenaline and a quickened pulse but a heart and soul as well.” It’ll hit theaters on April 8th 2011 after shooting throughout Europe earlier this year.
So there you go. If you want to see Saoirse Ronan play a teen assassin twice, next year is for you. Enjoy the shots below.
