Killer role for star Saoirse Ronan
Saoirse Ronan is in the frame to play a teen assassin in a new movie.
The 15-year-old, who can be seen as murdered teenager Susie Salmon in Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones later this month, is currently in talks about taking the title role in Hanna, says the Hollywood Reporter.
If the Irish actress does sign up, she would be back on set with British filmmaker Joe Wright, who directed Saoirse in her breakout role in Atonement in 2007.
Hanna follows the story of a 14-year-old whose dad raised her to be a cold-hearted killer.
