Joe Wright’s “Hanna” Becomes A TV Series

NBCUniversal International Studios has announced plans for a TV series adaptation of Joe Wright’s 2011 thriller feature “Hanna”.

Saoirse Ronan starred in the original as a girl raised in the wilderness of northern Finland by her father (Eric Bana), an ex-CIA operative, who trains her as an assassin. Cate Blanchett played a senior CIA agent who tries to track down and eliminate the girl and her father.

The new version will be penned by “The Night Manager” scribe David Farr who also co-wrote the original film. Farr will also executive produce alongside Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements.

The announcement comes as the studio is also developing a TV series adaptation of “Out of Africa” with “The Night Manager” director Susanne Bier.
