One of the panels at the New York Comic-Con 2010 that not many people knew anything about, was Atonement and Pride and Prejudice director Joe Wright‘s latest film, Hanna. But after learning a little about it, your interest in the assassin drama may just be piqued. On hand for the panel was Wright and stars Saoirse Ronan and Eric Bana.
The movie tells the story of a 14-year-old girl named Hanna (Ronan) who is raised in the wilds of Northern Finland by her father, Eric (Bana), to be a deadly young assassin. As any young teenager would, she begins yearning to explore the world and meet different people — she’s only really known her father and what she’s read in her books, which consists of an encyclopedia and Grimm’s Fairy Tales, causing her to have something of a fantastical-yet-false sense of what the real world is really like. In order to get to explore the world as she so wishes, she must first complete a dangerous mission: to find and assassinate a CIA agent named Marissa (Cate Blanchett), who her father had thought was already dead.
