"Hanna" Amazon Prime Video
Amazon Studios has given a straight-to-series order to "Hanna", adapted from the 2011 film (pictured), which was directed by Joe Wright. Like the film, it will focus on a teenage girl who was raised to be the perfect assassin, who goes on the run from a ruthless intelligence agent.

Compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction, she comes back from the dead full of rage, determined to get the life she never had.
A US version of the British fantasy series (pictured) has been given a pilot order. The cast for the pilot includes Ashleigh LaThrop, Tre Hall, Allie MacDonald, and Jake Cannavale.
