Saoirse Ronan Will Play An Assassin For Joe Wright image
When I wrote about Joe Wright's upcoming project Hanna, about a teenage girl assassin, a few months ago, it took a sharp commenter to point out that the obvious casting for the role would be Saoirse Ronan, who was brilliant in Wright's Atonement and is now the perfect age to play a 14-year-old Eastern European girl "raised by her father to be a cold-blooded killing machine."

And would you look at that-- THR is reporting that Ronan is negotiations for the part. Congratulations, commenter Alex! You are the smart one in this room.

Even though The Lovely Bones was a gigantic disappointment, Ronan came away from the whole thing pretty unscathed, and as she moves into more adult roles, how better to do it than play a complete ass-kicker? As for Wright, who broke a lot of hearts when The Soloist totally sucked, he's due for a bit of redemption himself. Let's hope these two can help each other out.
