Alexis Bledel & Saoirse Ronan: 'Violet & Daisy' Assassins!

Alexis Bledel will soon be Saoirse Ronan‘s partner in crime!

Alexis, 29, has signed on to star opposite Saoirse, 16, in the upcoming film Violet & Daisy about two teenage hitgirls, according to Variety.

The film centers around the young assassins who are lured into what is supposed to be just another quick, easy job.

They soon run into complications as the man they’re supposed to kill (James Gandolfini) is not what they expected.

The movie will be the directorial debut of screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher, who won an Oscar earlier this year for his work on Precious.

    Two beautiful and talented actresses.
    I see this being a fantastic movie.

    But, though she does look young, when will Alexis be offered a good part for someone her age.

    Considering how most white women pushing 30 look nowadays she looks amazing. I wouldn’t have thought she’d be older than 25.

    I love Alexis but isn’t she too old to play a convincing teenager? Her co-star is 13 years younger than her! The age discrepancy has to be noticeable when they are shooting those two next to each other.

    @variety: Alexis looks like a teenager, so it’s not a surprise.

    Saoirse Ronan looks older than her age, hell when Alexis was Saoirse’s age she looked a million times younger.

    She still looks the same as did in the first season of Gilmore Girls. She’ll get away with it.

    NOT really a fan of Bledel. She hasn’t wowed me yet w/ her acting roles and hopefully she does well in this film & can keep keep up w/ the more talented S. Ronan.
