She will reteam with “Atonement” director Joe Wright in “Hanna,” a Focus Features drama which gives the 15-year old actress the chance to be an action hero.
'Hanna' tells the story of a 14-year-old girl from Eastern Europe who has been raised by her ex- U.S. military father in the Swedish wilderness and trained as an assassin.
Ronan's new film 'The Lovely Bones', in which she plays a murdered girl, is due to open in UK cinemas in February.
While “Atonement” cast her as a young girl who did a very bad thing, “Hanna” gives her a chance to play a total badass. Ronan was Oscar-nominated for “Atonement,” her breakout role.
