Amazon Studios has given a straight-to-series order for their upcoming series HANNA, based on Joe Wright’s film of the same name.

The series will be written by David Farr (The Night Manager). In the film, 16-year-old Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) has been raised in the wilds of Finland by her ex-CIA father Erik (Eric Bana), but when she decides she’s ready to go off her own, she finds herself the target of her father’s handler Marissa Wiegler (Cate Blanchett) and a hired assassin (Tom Hollander). No word on the casting for the series.

HANNA will be executive produced by Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements, as well as NBCUniversal International Studios’ Scott Nemes and JoAnn Alfano.

Farr said:

“I am delighted to be able to return to the HANNA story. Joe Wright’s movie was dazzling, but inevitably there were certain elements that a feature-length film wasn’t able to fully explore. It’s a pleasure therefore to be able to revisit the material in a longer format and take HANNA into whole new physical and emotional worlds. Amazon has shown such passion for the project and is the perfect home for HANNA.”

Adelstein said:

“I am thrilled to be revisiting this fantastic story. HANNAH is one of the highlights of my career, and I look forward to seeing this story continue with David Farr.”

While he might be writing, Wright is not involved in the project.
