Variety reports that Eric Bana is in final negotiations to star opposite Saoirse Ronan in Focus Features’ action-thriller Hanna.
The Joe Wright-directed film centers on a 14-year-old Eastern European girl (Ronan) who has been raised by her father (Bana) 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 father’s 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.
Seth Lochhead wrote the script for the pic, which starts shooting in Germany in March.
