A small screen adaptation of ‘Hanna,’ Joe Wright’s 2011 action adventure thriller starring Saoirse Ronan, is reportedly in the works with ‘The Night Manager’ writer David Farr on board to shape the script.
Raised by her father (played by Eric Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland, Hanna’s upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one; sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna (Ronan) journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Cate Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity.
Farr, who also co-wrote the original film with Seth Lochhead, will executive produce the series alongside Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements.
