Eric Bana in Focus with ‘Hanna’

Actor to star opposite Saoirse Ronan in assassin pic

Eric Bana is in final negotiations to star opposite Saoirse Ronan in Focus Features’ assassin pic “Hanna.”

Story centers on a 14-year-old girl who has spent her life living in the woods and is trained by her father to be an assassin. She then leaves the wilderness for the first time to assassinate a high-ranking government official who has a lot to hide. Seth Lochhead penned the script.

Joe Wright (“Atonement”) directs the pic, which begins lensing in Germany in March.

Marty Adelstein, Leslie Holleran and Scott Nemes are producing.

Bana’s recent bigscreen projects include “Star Trek,” “Funny People,” “The Time Traveler’s Wife” and the documentary “Love the Beast.”
