Alexis Bledel & Saoirse Ronan: 'Violet & Daisy' Duo

Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan shoot scenes for their new movie, Violet & Daisy, in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City on Tuesday afternoon (September 28).

The twosome play the title characters — two teenage assassins accepting what they think will be a quick-and-easy job, until an unexpected target throws them off their plan.

This will be Geoffrey Fletcher‘s directorial debut. Machete‘s Danny Trejo and James Gandolfini will also star.

    Cannot wait to see this!!!

    I dont know what kind of tone they’re going for with this…but i hope its a comedy.

  • ashley

    looking forward to it…..I like unsuspected people that can kick ass and do some serious damage. 2011 for films alone is looking pretty uh-mazing.

  • Lanny

    Jared = Alexis’ biggest fan (with a news site) ! -> Jared, you’re the best ! <-
    The movie sounds interesting, but I watch them mostly for certain actors. Alexis being one of them and admittedly my favourite. I think it was about time she got some grittier roles. Again, something to look forward to.

  • Lala

    Interesting… :) looking forward to it

  • lexy hates bilson

    Always nice to see some TALENTED young ACTRESSES on your website!

  • Amber

    I’m thrilled to see Alexis gets a hopefully gritty part. Except for Sin City, I’ve never seen her do anything but “Rory” on screen, so really hoping she can create a different character.

    Ronan has really grown up; it’s nice to see an actress looking so healthy.

    How do you pronounce Saoirse????

  • summer

    Wow i can’t wait to see this movie!!! Saoirse is such a brilliant actress! i also really like Alexis! Though, she’s like 28-29 years old and play a teenage assasin? Saoirse is 16 so it makes sence…but yeah, kinda weird for Alexis lol.

    @DarkEmpress:

    it’s prenounced Sur-sha

  • J

    Saoirse is such an amazing actress. Alexis, however, is a terrible actress.

  • mae

    In the first pic Alexis does looks like Saoirse XD I hope she’ll give her best in this movie

  • squidgy

    Alexis looks prettier & younger though she’s already 29 yrs old!

  • squidgy

    @7
    Its SARSHA… I believe…

  • chewey

    Don’t know what I’d do without the semi regular updatesof the now-grown-up Rory. Thanks so much Jared.

  • ashrose

  • aerone

    Whoa its the battle for the most sparkling blue eyes – wonder who’s going to win in this category lol

  • phadseehue

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

  • atticus

    Saoirse Ronan was so good in Atonement even better that Keira Knightly. Hope that Alexis could keep up w/ her

  • moira

    Oooh I love Alexis & glad she’s working on a film like this and I’m prepared to be “surreally surprised” by what she have got w/ this film

  • blanche

    Their characters are supposed to be 17 & 19 yrs old. And w/ Alexis ageless looks, she could still pulled that off.

  • pyt
  • blaire

    Alexis Bledel will be Violet in Violet and Daisy! She’s gonna play an assassin!!! As much as I love her, she’s too fragile looking for the part. I can’t imagine her as an assassin – well probably not yet…

  • shallowguy

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

  • smarties

    Alexis looks DE-Glamourize already in this film – I like it already!

  • smarties

    And Alexis is forever gorgeous no matter whats she looks like but I still prefer her to be a brunnette rather than being blonde.

  • kaleigh

    Saoirse really looks like Chloe Sevigny – isnt it?!

  • audemars

    From co-starring w/ the likes of James Macvoy & the legendary Robert Redford and now w/ the talented Saoirse Ronan & that Oscar winner Precious director,,, looks like Ms Bledel is going places these days

  • winthrope
  • luffiness

    Saoirse Ronan is one of the youngest & talented actress to watch – cant actually wait to see this…

  • larkine

    Before this thing could wrap up, Alexis got another movie titled “The Conspirator w/ James McAvoy who co-stars w/ Ronan in Atonement… just a mere coincidence?!

  • harley

    Great & Interesting coosome-twosome. I like this cast!

  • cheyenne

    W/ an Oscar winner Geoffrey Fletcher’ around, this movie could gear up for another award recognitions just like what/when he did in Precious…

  • cheyenne

    And as much as I like Alexis but technically speaking (as in basing on age) isn’t she too old to play a teenager?!

  • Maggie

    Meh, more interested in seeing Saoirse face-off with Cate Blanchett in Hanna.

    But actually, this does sound pretty cool. But like alot of others, iffy on Bledel. can she act? i guess she was cast for a reason so here’s hopin.

  • girly16

    Saoirse is a great actress i love the movie the lovely bones and cant wait to see more of her work :)

  • vishnu

    Cant wait to see Alexis in this it’s definitely something new for her. Hope she’ll finally make the grade w/ this film

  • elisha

    It’s nice to see some beautiful & genuinely talented girls be successful. With these cast & director, it’ll be great. Congrats w/ the girls!

    The Violet & Daisy script must be really outstanding for her to play another assassin pretty soon after Hanna…
