WonderCon 2011: “Hanna” Roundtable With Director Joe Wright and Star Saoirse Ronan

by Dan Koelsch

The action thriller Hanna opens this coming weekend in theaters, so Focus Features held a roundtable interview for the director Joe Wright and Saoirse Ronan, who has the title role in the film. Listen to the interviews after the break.

The film stars Ronan as Hanna, a well-trained daughter who is sent on a mission by her ex-CIA operative father (Eric Bana) while eluding the CIA. The majority of our time (0:00 – 12:08) was spent with Ronan, who was very well spoken and put together for a 16 year old. She talked mostly about what her drew her to this film and how it’s not just an action flick. Joe Wright (12:09 – 16:47) also discussed how he came aboard the film and how the project scared the usually character-driven director. Both talk about how the film uses a fairytale theme and plays with the idea.
