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

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.

  • Jaq

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

  • variety

    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.

  • Dantius

    Alexis Bledel is incredibly gorgeous. I hope that she does more mainstream movies from now on.

  • the truth

    look like the movie will be good one for these actors. Like to see movies with the women in control. lol


    @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.

  • Radiohead

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

  • Anne

    Yes! is nice to know that we’ll see her in a new movie

    “Alexis, 29″ :D She looks 19 and the perfect Snow White, if the rumors are true.

  • Anne

    O.o Saoirse Ronan was the girl on Atonement!

  • eueson
    So its Alexis Bledel’s GAIN and Carey Mulligan’s LOST?!
    So we’ll see…

  • mikee

    Its a great cast. Goodluck to the film ast its looks interesting. Wonder if there’s leading man?!

  • schullen

    W/ Alexis NEW hairdo. She & Saoirse looked already like “sisters”.

  • gg-fan

    A Gilmore Girls reunion would be nice too; so please please please!!!

  • shaunee

    I/m having a hard time pronoucing the name “Saiorse” or even wrote ot spelled in down LOL

  • shaunee

    I mean… I’M having a hard time pronoucing the name “Saiorse” or even wrote OR spelled in down LOL

  • precious

    I love Saoirse Ronan in Atonement & Lovely Bones.

  • chickeedee

    I want Alexis’ eyes so freakin’ much!

  • phadsee

    @10 – Whoa I can’t believe they chose Alexis to replaced Carey Mulligan. Alexis must really have talent – isnt it?!

  • marcier

    Good to see Alexis is still working and can get interesting roles. She and Ronan are both pretties & talented.

  • pyt

    Are we sure Bledel didn’t sign a pact with the devil alongside Michael Cera to look young forever?

  • outspoken

    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.

  • alistaire

    Oooh I love Alexis & glad she’s still workin’ and I’m prepared to be “surreally surprised” by what she have got w/ this film.

  • team-alexis

    And Alexis would still be a busy-bee gal throught out the year or so – YAY!!!

  • deebree

    Such an interesting concept w/ a great & talented cast. Hope the movie does well and or earn some recognition as it more looks like it.

  • garethglund

    So Saoirse will be playing to two assassin movies huh?!
    Whatever, if its not that “chick flick” I’ll go for it.

  • shallowguy

    2 hot & beautiful female assassins = definitely WIN in my book.

  • @13

    Luaren Graham needs more interesting movie roles (just like Alexis is getting) as well than be stuck on a TV show again. Isnt she’s the more talented Gilmore girl?!

  • pixeloo
  • kimbel

    Thanks Jared for keeping up w/ Alexis post & news.

  • bubbles

    Love Alexis. Looking forward to her new project/s too.

  • dream-drifter

    Two sets of sparkling blue eyes! Everyone is going to be watching or mesmerized 1ST w/ their eyes, second only to the film LOL.

  • dream-drifter

    Further, in the posted JJ’s picture, Its Alexis who looks more like 16 & Saiorse could be believable as the 29 yr old… so surreal!

  • crunchie

    Saiorse looks soo very creepy-scary in Atonement just like that girl in the movie Orphan.

  • bourneville

    It’s about time this Ex Gilmore chick got a starring role other than the chick flicks she’s been in. She was great & fun to watch in GG, so I look forward to seeing her doing “”something completely different here”…

  • annie

    alexisis so talented and classy,something some of these young actors r not. i saw lovely bones and saoirse is very talented too,so young.

  • momsies

    Alexis already “co-starred” w/ those 2 Atonement cast. First up w/ James Mcavoy w/ The Conspirator and now Saiorse Ronan… so next up would be Kiera Knightly?!?!

  • booost

    Just probably – that Alexis got signed on w/ this film becoz her looks is hugely similar w/ Ronan too… i.e. ethereal face, pale skin & fiercing blue eyes & slim-toned bod.

  • zarah

    I love her! And I love Gilmore Girls!
    It would be MORE amazing if there’s really GG movie!
    Maybe a reunion between her & Lauren and or her GG bff on that..

  • pristine

    Cant wait FIRST for another Alexis movie, The Conspirator w/ the now hotlister & real actor James MCavoy

  • curly-wurly

    Alexis “Rory Gilmore” Bledel could probably kill anyone by merely staring at her fiery blue eyes LOL

  • arlus

    I swear Alexis never ages… like she really drunk that water from that “Tuck Everlasting” movie LOL

  • carmichael

    Wow a “killer movie” for Alexis?! About damn time to come out of her shell already!!!

  • jessielad

    With Alexis ANTI-AGEING genetics… bet sure that she could be still be catching w/ Saoirse in the age department LOL

  • juniper

    Alexis should really play RENESMEE next from Twilight/Breaking Dawn (probably the grown-up one) LOL

  • starlit

    Love her. I’m really glad that Jared had been posting more about Alexis, keep ’em coming. The Conspirator look & sound good. Looking forward seeing it when it goes out.

  • mickol

    So I’m seeing that Alexis could still have a “career” – good for her.

  • anthea

    Definitely everyone’s achin’ to have a Gilmore Movie. Agree much.
    And both Lauren & Alexis should work more – they’re talented and very likeable…

  • twixxle

    Saiorse Ronan is beautiful too and she’s only 16. Her looks would develop/evolve more in the years to come
