Cate Blanchett Joins Ronan And Bana In Joe Wright's Hanna image
Joe Wright's Hanna, which we only learned was in the works in November, has been moving along swiftly ever since his Atonement ingenue Saoirse Ronan signed on to star. Now Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Cate Blanchett will join Ronan and Eric Bana in the film, in which Ronan plays a 14-year-old spy.

No word on what Blanchett's role will be, but I'm hoping she's on the side of the assassin world and not the French family that shelters Ronan's character through her adolescence. I contend that the movie could be amazing, particularly given Wright's fondness for strong female characters (we'll just forget about The Soloist for now), but Josh is convinced it will be boring and slow-moving. Below is the synopsis of the film; read that and tell me a movie about the emotional side of being an assassin also has to be boring:

"The story 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 fatherís 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."
