Saoirse Ronan & Joe Wright reunited
7 January, 2010 · Posted by under Articles · No Comments

Focus Features have confirmed that director Joe Wright will team with his Atonement actress Saoirse Ronan on new film Hanna.

Although plot details are thin, the film will be about a young girl (Ronan) who is raised in the wilds of Europe by her ex-military father – presumably trained in various forms of combat, as tends to happen – and focuses on the 14 year-old’s fight against US Intelligence to get back to family.

Wright is best known for his Oscar-nommed period dramas, and Ronan hardly typifies the action hero type, so Hanna seems something of an odd choice, but we’re going to file this one under ‘fairly interesting’ for now..

No further casting news to report thus far, but the role of the father sounds fairly pivotal – perhaps one of Wright’s previous collaborators could fill those shoes, Downey Jr perhaps?

From the vague synopsis, this seems a little Kick-Ass meets La Femme Nikita, which done properly has all the potential to be pretty spectacular. Lets just hope it is a little more focused than Wright’s last effort, the critically assaulted The Soloist.

Hanna is set to begin shooting later this year in Europe.


Saoirse Ronan Avoided Bones
6 January, 2010 · Posted by under Articles · No Comments

Saoirse Ronan didn’t read ‘The Lovely Bones’ before starring in the film.

The 15-year-old actress – who plays the role of a murdered teenager Susie Salmonl looking down on earth – avoided reading the emotional book because she felt she was not old enough to understand it properly.

She said: “When I did get the role, I waited to read it until after I’d made the film because I was a little too young to read it.

“I’d heard it was a tough read, especially the first chapter, with rape and murder. After reading it now, I realise that it is quite tough but I eventually did read it and it was beautiful.

“I thought that Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Phillippa Boyens did a great job adapting it.”

Sairse also admitted she didn’t discuss the murder scene with her co-star Stanley Tucci before they filmed it.

She told Teen Hollywood: “We didn’t talk about it beforehand. I don’t think Stanley really wanted to.”

15-year-old actress Saoirse (pronounced Sur-sha) Ronan is here telling us she would love to make a more lighthearted film after her roles in the serious Atonement, City of Ember and now the murder/thriller The Lovely Bones, based upon the ultra-popular novel, in which she plays a 14-year-old murder victim.

And, you read it here first! Saoirse would also love to make a film with fellow 15-year-old Dakota Fanning, maybe 16-year-old Anna-Sophia Robb and, hey, just some teens her age for a change!

We are getting the scoop from the teen mega-actress in her suite at Beverly Hills’ Four Seasons hotel.

Saoirse Ronan

This young Irish actress stole the screen in her first major film “Atonement” from bigger-named actors Keira Knightly and James McAvoy.

Saoirse Ronan also earned her first Academy Award nomination. In her current film, Peter Jackson’s “The Lovely Bones,” Ronan is earning raves for her role as murdered teen Susie Salmon, the film’s narrator, even if the film is not.

At just 15, Ronan, whose first name is pronounced “Seer-sha,” is likely to be around for a while. Next up, Peter Weir’s “The Way Back,” in which she’ll no doubt hold her own against Colin Farrell and Ed Harris.

“She’s on the younger end of the spectrum, which means she has a lot of time and can play both teenage roles and move into young adult roles,” Kilday said. “She’s already established her credentials within the industry. Now she’s building up a public persona in terms of film audiences.”
