Saoirse Ronan will play a teenage assassin in two different movies set to release next year.

“Hanna,” which is in post-production, is directed by Joe Wright, who led the then-unknown Ronan to worldwide stardom at the age of 11 for her Oscar-nominated role in “Atonement.”

The film, which also stars Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana, has Ronan playing a girl who has been trained as a killer to exact her father's deadly wishes on the world.

The sixteen-year-old has also recently started filming “Violet and Daisy,” in New York. The film is directed by Geoffrey Fletcher, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of “Precious.”

Those who have worked with Ronan believe the actress is more than capable of handling whatever roles come her way.

"She's a phenomenal actor. It's just in her," said Colin Farrell who worked with her on “The Way Back,” a World War II film. "She's really smart and really lovely with it."
