Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Pride and Prejudice”) is in talks to direct the action adventure thriller “Hanna” for Focus Features reports Heat Vision.
Seth Lochhead and David Farr’s script centers on a 14-year-old Eastern European girl who has been raised by her father to be a cold-blooded killing machine.
She connects with a French family, forms a friendship with their daughter and goes through the pangs of adolescence.
When the girl is dragged back to her father’s world and discovers that she was bred as a killing machine in a CIA prison camp, she must fight her way to a free life.
Wright had previous been attached to direct “Indian Summer” with Cate Blanchett until it was put on hold due to budgeting concerns.
