Alexis Bledel Picks “Violet and Daisy”

Alexis Bledel (“Tuck Everlasting,” “Gilmore Girls”) has joined the cast of the indie drama “Violet and Daisy” for Magic Violet/GreeneStreet Films reports Variety.

The story centres on a pair of teenage female assassins (Bledel, Saoirse Ronan) who are lured into what is supposed to be just another quick and easy job, only to find complications as the man they’re supposed to kill is not what they expected.

James Gandolfini also stars. “Precious” scribe Geoffrey Fletcher makes his directorial debut on the project and is producing with Bonnie Timmerman. Filming kicks off next week in New York.
