She'll be joined by Tony Soprano himself, actor James Gandolfini, who's joining as co-star. Ronan will play one of two teenage assassins who sign on to do what appears to be a simple job -- only to discover that it's much more complicated than they initially thought.
Written and directed by Oscar winner Geoffrey Fletcher, the film is being described as "'Thelma and Louise' meets 'Superbad' and 'Pulp Fiction'." I'm not sure I'm sold on that description, but it's certainly ambitious and a far cry from Fletcher's last screenplay -- the critical darling 'Precious'.
Ronan is best known for her parts in 'The Lovely Bones' and 'Atonement'. She's set to appear next in Joe Wright's 'Hanna', which finds her raised as a "cold-blooded killing machine" who tries to adjust to normal life after connecting with a French family.
Honestly, who'd have guessed Ronan was such a murderous young woman? She looks so charming and innocent in her pictures. We'll get our first chance to see if she's believable as a death dealer next April when 'Hanna' hits theaters. Do you think she can pull off these parts?
