HANNA: NBCUniversal Tackles TV Adaptation With David Farr

Director Joe Wright’s 2011 thriller, Hanna, didn’t exactly perform superb at the box office but did manage to break even a bit with global sales. Measurably, it was an entertaining feat about a young girl, the daughter of a former government official, trained as an assassin from early on to face swarms of government operatives and rogues looking for her and I personally, wouldn’t have protested a sequel.

As far as the small-screen goes, however, those efforts are now a thing as per the latest report from Deadline with word that The Ones Below debut helmer David Farr, is developing a TV version of the film which he also wrote with Seth Lochhead. NBCUniversal International is backing the project with JoAnn Alfano leading the L.A. writing team, with Tomorrow Studios, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements also producing.

Farr’s latest TV successes with AMC/BBC series, The Night Manager, have currently bolstered prospects for a second season. He is reportedly writing upcoming series, Troy: Fall of a City, for BBC with Netflix co-producing, and has co-written Cedric Jimenez’s pending period war drama, The Man With The Iron Heart.
