Marianne Jean-Baptiste Picks A “Violet”

Utterly delightful British actress Marianne Jean-Baptiste (“Without a Trace,” “Secrets and Lies”) has signed on to play an assassin in “Precious” scribe Geoffrey Fletcher’s directorial debut “Violet and Daisy” reports Black Voices.

Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel star as two teenage assassins who take a quick and easy job, only to find complications as their intended victim (James Gandolfini) is not what they expected.

Jean-Baptiste’s character is ‘Number One’, described as an “other worldly shape-shifting assassin”. The actress already shot some of her scenes last week in New York City.
