Saoirse Ronan filming Hanna pic

First look at the now 16 year old Saoirse Ronan as Hanna, raised from childhood to be the perfect assassin by her ex-CIA man father (Eric Bana) in rural Finland.

“Hanna (Ronan) is a teenage girl. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a solider; these come from being raised by her father (Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Sweden. Living a life unlike any other teenager, her 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 journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity.”

 The off-set pic (right) shows the changes they've made to her hair and eyebrows.

Saoirse is joined by two young British actors, Jessica Barden as Sophie, and newcomer 10 year old Aldo Maland (Young Actors Theatre) as Sophie's younger brother Miles.
The film is due for release in 2011.
