FirstShowing.Net reports:

After leading the twisted sort of fairytale that was Hanna, young actress Saoirse Ronan will lead yet another drastically different variation on a classic story in what should be the last adaptation of Snow White we’ll need for at least a decade. Variety reports Ronan has been tapped to lead Order of Seven, the Kung Fu centric telling of the tale that follows Olivia Sinclair, a British expatriate in 19th century Hong Kong, who seeks the protection of centuries old warriors, now a jaded group of outlaws (in place of the usual dwarves). After the reemergence of an ancient evil empress, Sinclair then helps the warriors reclaim their destiny.

Sounds great to me. In last year’s Hannah Ronan played a genetically-modified tiny blond killing machine, trained by her father (Eric Bana):

Ronan’s likable protagonist, strong supporting performances from Bana and Cate Blanchett, a pumping techno score from the Chemical Brothers, and Joe Wright’s energetic action sequences make for one of 2011′s hidden gems.

The 17-year-old Ronan (born in 1994) and especially the overachieving Hannah character from the film relate to the subject of my article last week on the Hidden Power of Millennial Women.
