“I’m thrilled that Hanna has managed to attract a visionary director and actors of the calibre of Mireille and Joel to play our adult leads. And in Esme Creed-Miles I believe we have discovered a star of the future — she is going to be a very special Hanna. Hanna aims to be both a raw-knuckle ride and a deeply touching family drama. It has the visceral excitement of a genuine conspiracy thriller but also the simple humanity of a rites of passage drama. Hanna is in a very unusual family. She’s a very special teenager. But all teenagers think they’re abnormal. She’s just a little more abnormal than most.”
Adelstein included: “I am thrilled to be revisiting this fantastic story. ‘Hanna’ is one of the highlights of my career, and I look forward to seeing this story continue with David Farr.” Wright is not connected to the series.
Sarah Adina Smith ( Legion, Room 104) is set to direct Hanna, which will start shooting in March throughout Hungary, Slovakia, Spain, and the U.K.
