The Lovely Bones
October 17, 2010 by Post Team
The Lovely Bones, After Saoirse Ronan character was brutally raped and murdered in last year’s The Lovely Bones, it may be fair to Ronan to get some payback film. She’s sixteen years old, was in Manhattan this week for the inaugural New York Comic-Con Hanna, where he plays a teenage murderer raised by Eric Bana and sent after Cate Blanchett (The film reunites with Ronan Director Joe Wright, who directed her an Oscar nomination for 2007 of Atonement). Shortly after that, she will play against other murderer early Alexis Bledel and James Gandolfini in Violet & Daisy, the directorial debut of screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher Precious. While she was in town, managed to corner Ronan Vulture to discuss the two films (but not too close, because frankly, we’re a little afraid of it now.)
So you’ve suddenly become a hit Hollywood to go girl!
Yes! In fact, I decided to do both films at once, and had a meeting with Geoffrey and said, “I’ll do this movie called Hanna, and she’s not exactly a murderer, but she kills people, and I hope it will not affect our movie. “The more I thought the two stories, however, are so very different.
Hanna is more serious, and curiously, is more realistic. Violet & Daisy is quite surreal. Are these two girls who are about eighteen or nineteen, but they act very young. Just being together and not actually step outside your little bubble. Kill people, but it is very cold, and it is only a little of what they do – as the character of Alexis Bledel gum blows, while she’s shooting a guy. It’s that kind of stuff, a little comic Hanna, which is more of a fairy tale.
I talked to Geoffrey before and that is possibly one of the nicest people ever unnervingly.
Never! I would say yes, yes. He is so sweet and charming and is so excited to finally get to make his first film.
I worry that he is not a bad person to be a director.
I know! Sometimes I have to just go, “Come on, Geoff! I tell you what I do!” [Laughs] No, no. It is a very, very sweet boy.
So how has your relationship with Joe Wright changed since you made atonement together?
I think like any relationship, which only grew. We know better, and we’re closer. We have a very good working relationship and it seems that we are in tune. Besides, this time, I’m sixteen and before I was eleven or twelve.
Were you and treat you like a sixteen year old, then?
I do not think I ever really be marked with age, which I welcome. He always treated me as just Saoirse. I think when we started working together on this, he was a bit of a shock that had grown since we last worked together – mentally and physically, it will grow much in four years – so he could have been like, “Oh my God, Saoirse is not a small child. ” It was fun for me.
You told me that Hanna is different from Violet & Daisy tonal, but how your own character is different in each?
Hanna is very quiet. She is very innocent and very quiet when you kill people. [Laughs] It’s very fair, which is probably what I like about it. When the world comes first, she does not know the difference between right and wrong or good and bad or the ugly and beautiful – she has a completely open mind to everything. Daisy is an absolute love that is similar, and there was so much to do something for the people they love, but Daisy is pretty funny. Some of the things she comes out with are hilarious. puppies and chewing gum are very serious things for her.
Did you have to do weapons training in these films?
Yes, to both. It was great, because Violet & Daisy arrived just after Hanna and I had done my training with weapons and martial arts to Hanna. I was like, “Just give me the gun and I’m going to shoot, okay?”
“Just send Alexis. I have this.”
[Laughs] That’s basically what happened! It came in very useful, because I know how to carry out a pistol now and what you can expect when shooting.
I am an adult, and I do not even know what to expect from it.
It’s fun! Like, what really sets your heart racing.
