2011 Action Thriller, HANNA, Goes Into TV Series Development For NBCUniversal Int'l


Director Joe Wright's 2011 espionage thriller, Hanna, starring Saoirse Ronan and Cate Blanchett, didn't exactly perform superb at the box office but did manage to break even with its budget through international ticket sales. Measurably it was an entertaining feat about a young girl, the daughter of a former government official, trained in hiding as an assassin from early on to face swarms of government operatives and rogues whilst discovering the world she's never seen.

I personally wouldn't have protested a sequel and it's unlikely that it will be getting one. As far as the small-screen goes, however, those efforts are now a thing as per the latest report from Deadline with word that The Ones Below debut helmer David Farr, is developing a TV version of the film which he also wrote with Seth Lochhead. NBCUniversal International is backing the project with JoAnn Alfano leading the L.A. writing team, with Tomorrow Studios, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements also producing.

Farr's latest TV successes with AMC/BBC series, The Night Manager, have currently bolstered prospects for a second season. He is reportedly writing upcoming series, Troy: Fall of a City, for BBC with Netflix co-producing, and has co-written Cedric Jimenez's pending period war drama, The Man With The Iron Heart.

  1. The thing is, if they start the show the same way as the movie, then the main character will already be an adult after 2 or 3 seasons.
