Alexis Bledel Replaces Carey Mulligan as Teenage Assassin


Alexis Bledel


The 'Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants' babe signs up to star in 'Violet and Daisy', joining Saoirse Ronan.

Alexis Bledel is going to show her dark side in "Violet & Daisy". The actress, known for her role of good girl Rory Gilmore in TV series "Gilmore Girls", will play a teenage assassin in the upcoming movie, Variety reports.

Bledel steps in the project to replace Carey Mulligan, who was originally cast for the part but dropped out over a scheduling conflict. The "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" star joins another female lead, Saoirse Ronan, and James Gandolfini who have been cast before.

A directorial debut of screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher, "Violet & Daisy" revolves around a pair of teenage assassins who are lured into what is supposed to be just another quick and easy job, only to find complications as the man they're supposed to kill is not what they expected. Fletcher also writes the script for the movie, which has been described as a cross between "Thelma & Louise", "Superbad", and "Pulp Fiction". No release date is set for the film.

Alexis Bledel's previous films include "Tuck Everlasting", "Bride and Prejudice", "Sin City" and "Post Grad". She lands role in "The Conspirator" which recently was premiered at Toronto International Film Festival.
