Focus Features is about to make a reverse spin on Luc Besson's "The Professional" entitled "Hanna."
Looks like Focus Features is brewing an interesting work at its pit. Variety has reported that the studio is in progress to develop a big screen feature entitled "Hanna", which will likely be a reverse spin on Luc Besson's 1994 effort "The Professional."
The project will present a premise of a14-year-old who must learn how to be a girl after being raised by her father to be a cold-hearted killing machine. In "Professional", on the other hand, a 12-year-old girl asks her hitman neighbor to train her as an assassin in order to avenge the death of her brother.
Production schedule has not yet been set, but it is learned that the picture will be developed from the script written by Seth Lochhead with Marty Adelstein and Scott Nemes both seating as producers.
