Amazon has ordered ‘Hanna’ adaptation straight to series

I had no idea that there was a Hanna TV series adaptation in the works. From the movie’s original writer, no less! But there was, there is, and it’s gone straight to series.

AV Club:

Back in March, we reported that writer David Farr was developing a TV show version of the 2011 film Hanna, and now Deadline says that Amazon has picked up that project with a straight-to-series order. Farr, who also wrote The Night Manager for AMC and the original Hanna movie, is sticking around to write the series. The original starred Saoirse Ronan as the teenage daughter of a former government operative who had been trained to be an expert assassin, and the TV version will reportedly be a “high-concept thriller” crossed with a “coming-of-age drama” about an “extraordinary young girl as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is.” In other words, it’s going to be a more drawn-out version of the Hanna movie.

It doesn’t sound like any actors are on board yet, but since the show already has a series order, Amazon will most likely start moving forward on that pretty quickly.
