Alexis Bledel Joins Violet and Daisy

Alexis Bledel has officially joined the cast of Violet and Daisy, Geoffrey Fletcher’s story of teen assassins, reports Variety.

Bledel, best known for her role on “Gilmore Girls” and her filmic turns in Sin City and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, will star with Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, City of Ember) as a pair of young assassins whose assistant proves to be much more involved than they had initially planned.

Fletcher previously adapted Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire, winning himself an Academy award. Violet and Daisy, from his own original script, will mark his first directing gig. James Gandolfini is also attached to star.
