Amazon Studios has released a new trailer for its upcoming series Hanna, an adaptation of the 2011 Joe Wright film of the same name which starred Saoirse Ronan. David Farr, who co-wrote the film, will also write this series, with Sarah Adina Smith (Buster’s Mal Heart) directing. Hanna stars Esme Creed-Miles as the young girl trained to be a ruthless killer by her father, played by Joel Kinnaman (Altered Carbon). Mireille Enos (The Killing) is stepping into the role of a CIA agent tracking down the tiny assassin.
The trailer gives some sense of what a strange existence Hanna has had, being trained up as she has, but also laughing and having fun with her friends — or are they just related to targets? Her father says he’s tried to give her normal life, but she counters, “but I’m not normal, am I?” Her strength is that she will be easily overlooked and dismissed, her father says — which makes her all the more deadly as someone no target will see coming.
The end of the trailer also reveals that Amazon will make the first episode of the series available for Prime subscribers, but only for 24 hours following the game. Hanna is set for a March release – check out the badass new trailer below:
Here is the official synopsis for the original film:
Raised by her father in the Finnish wilderness, teenage Hanna has trained all her life to be the perfect assassin. Her father sends her on a mission, and she stealthily makes her way across Europe while evading agents sent after her by a ruthless operative named Marissa, who once worked with Hanna’s father. As she draws closer to her target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and begins to question her humanity.
