    Saoirse Ronan Talks Possibility Of Working With Joe Wright Again, Remains Cagey On 'Anna Karenina'

    She might be a good half-decade off being able to drink legally, but Saoirse Ronan has already racked up an impressive array of performances in her career so far. What's more, she seems to know a good deal more about media management than actors three times her age -- while a veteran like, say, Michael Caine is constantly thwarting Christopher Nolan's plans for secrecy, Ronan knows how to run rings around the press when it comes to rumors. She's already come out with a firm refusal to confirm or deny just about anything about her rumored presence in "The Hobbit," and when we caught up with the actress at WonderCon over the weekend, where she ...

    'Hanna' Director Joe Wright Calls "Bullshit" On 'Sucker Punch's Faux Feminism

    One of the many things that we took particular umbrage with in reviewing Zack Snyder’s unerringly nasty, totally boring “Sucker Punch,” was its horrible gender politics. Keep in mind that this is a movie in which a bunch of young girls, to escape the psychic and physical pain of getting regularly ra...

    Saoirse Ronan Might Get Literary With Joe Wright's 'Anna Karenina'

    If everything comes together as planned, Joe Wright will get his adaptation of "Anna Karenina" this fall and he's amassing one helluva cast. He's already got longtime collaborator Keira Knightley on board, and Aaron Johnson and Jude Law are also vying for roles. Wright tends to be fiercely loyal to ...

    Armie Hammer Signs On To 'The Brothers Grimm: Snow White,' Saoirse Ronan In Talks For Title Role

    As we're sure you're aware by now, there are three duelling projects retelling the tale of Snow White in development. One, Disney's "Snow and the Seven," is the furthest away -- while "Toy Story 3" writer Michael Arndt recently signed on to do a script polish, and director Francis Lawrence is still nominally attached, it has no star, and no start date. Another, Universal's "Snow White and the Huntsman," was once leading the pack, and does have Kristen Stewart signed on in the title role, but seems to have hit problems in recent days -- Charlize Theron still hasn't signed on as the villain, and Viggo Mortensen's talks have apparently collapsed...

    Saoirse Ronan Says She's Still Not Confirmed For 'The Hobbit'

    The "is she? isn't she?" game of whether or not Saoirse Ronan will join "The Hobbit" continues. Last month, casting agent Ros Hubbard said that Ronan has been cast—or is intended to be cast—in “The Hobbit" saying, “[W]orking with Peter Jackson is like working with a family. So they’ll have a great ...

    Emma Thompson's 'Effie' With Orlando Bloom & Saoirse Ronan Stuck In Legal Row

    Last fall, a rather interesting project was coming together based around a script from actress/screenwriter Emma Thompson. Titled "Effie," the film lined up a solid cast with Saorise Ronan, Orlando Bloom, Imelda Staunton, Greg Wise and Thompson herself in the strange-but-true story that centers on the wedding night between Victorian artist, architect, poet and political thinker John Ruskin and his wife, Effie Gray. Ruskin was long infatuated with Gray and married her when she was 17. However, when it came time to consummate their marriage, something so reviled Ruskin that Gray remained a virgin until after they divorced and she remarried his ...

    Watch: Trying To Kiss A Teenage Assassin Is Dangerous In New U.K. Trailer For 'Hanna'

    We have to admit, the first trailer for Joe Wright's "Hanna" didn't do much for us, not really delivering on the 'Bourne'-esque vibe we were expecting, but the new UK trailer plays much better and points to something perhaps slightly different than the Matt Damon franchise.
