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.

# 2

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.

# 3

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.

# 4

Interesting… :) looking forward to it

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

# 6

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.

# 7

How do you pronounce Saoirse????

# 8

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

# 9

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

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

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

@7
Its SARSHA… I believe…

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

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

And wow Alexis dyed her hair back to its original color, I thought it was for the movie?!

NO pictures of them together – wonder who’s taller?!

Look like the movie will be good one for these actresses. Like to see movies with the women in control & who kills lol

just-noticing @ 09/28/2010 at 10:46 pm

Saoirse looks soo happy while Alexis looking soo confused – why?!

Beautiful women who assinates “rules” LOL

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

@ 8 & 12
Thanks for that as /m having a hard time pronoucing the name “Saiorse” or even wrote ot spelled in down LOL

Alexis is ALSO talented actress! She deserves to be given a break like this. Go Alexis!

Glad to see Alexis on an acting run once again and w/ an interesting role huh?!

I love Saoirse Ronan in Atonement & Lovely Bones

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

phadseehue @ 09/28/2010 at 11:38 pm

Whoa I can’t believe they chose Alexis to replaced Carey Mulligan. Alexis must really have talent – isnt it?!
http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00035569.html

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

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

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

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 @ 09/29/2010 at 12:16 am

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

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

And Alexis is forever gorgeous no matter whats she looks like but I still prefer her to be a brunnette rather than being blonde.
http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2483461/alexis-bledel-violet-dasiy-saorise-ronan-03/

Saoirse really looks like Chloe Sevigny – isnt it?!

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

luffiness @ 09/29/2010 at 1:03 am

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

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?!

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

@46
http://blog.moviefone.com/2010/01/07/saoirse-ronan-hanna-the-hitgirl/
The Violet & Daisy script must be really outstanding for her to play another assassin pretty soon after Hanna…

@50…”assassin” is just a label. Like if an actor played a “cop” in a gritty crime drauma and then played a “cop” in a bonkers action comedy….no ones gonna be like “OMG!”.

The descriptions of this make it out to be some crazy female buddy comedy…..while her other flick is a serious thriller set in Europe.

But yes, i could see the script being outstanding.

Saoirse is so amazing! Great that she’s getting so many acting jobs!

curly-wurly @ 09/29/2010 at 2:16 am

@45
Alexis is UNsurprsingly still looks like a teenager,whereas Saoirse Ronan looks somewhat older than her age, just saying…

Whoa, So both of these girls are going to be a bad-azzes in this. It catches up my attention already…

Saoirse Ronan is a “better” actress than Krsiten Stewart or Emma Watson. Hope she could be popular & bankable as they are…

dream-drifter @ 09/29/2010 at 2:45 am

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

bourneville @ 09/29/2010 at 2:56 am

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”…

@37
Still many are digging her blondish-do; think that she looks like a bombshell!!!
http://www.mylifetime.com/all-the-looks/hairs-the-scoop-blog/alexis-bledel-goes-ginger?rss_lnk=18452

Alexis doesn’t look very pleased to have his picture taken at that moment while shooting the film contrast to Saoirse who looks so jolly. Anyways I’m so excited to have Alexis acting up on the big-screen once again, so a big YAY for that.

archikins @ 09/29/2010 at 3:35 am

W/ the goody-two-shoes Alexis on the cast, It will be nice to see her in something really different… like “”a good girl who gone bad is the hottest kind of girl” – LOL

I absolutely love these 2 …I had watch the GG for years & just watched the lovely bones recently…this is goin to be a great movie, cant wait!

@16
On their IMDB page, Alexis said to be 5’7″ while Ronan is 5’6″. But Ronan looks to have a bigger bone structure than Alexis so she might appear look taller but we shall see when their pics together would already surface on the net.

@21
Their leading man is James Gandolfini LOL

Both have such amazing blue eyes. I see bright/ great things ahead of them.

Ronan looks quite older while Alexis looks so much younger than their actual age – how surreal is that?!

Oh my god when did Saoirse grew up that much? O_O Last time I saw her she still looked like a little kid?!

Alexis Bledel ages so beautifully & gracefully. She is a classic/true beauty.

team-alexis @ 09/29/2010 at 5:40 am

I love all of these Alexis updates. You are way ahead of any other blogs. I love it! Keep them all coming!

Love me some Alexis… but damn girl, must mix or need in some sunshine!

mony_mony @ 09/29/2010 at 6:24 am

Glad to see Saoirse already on the main Just Jared instead of the the JJ Jr. She’s growing up so fast even kinda look older than Alexis already…

It’s nice to hear that Alexis is doing something that she had never done ever before. Violet & Daisy huh? I’ll keep an eye out for that…

Saoirse Ronan has so much talent it’s scary, I’m sure she’ll hit this one outta the ball park like she usually does. Bledel…I’m iffy on that one. Just hope she doesn’t screw this up cos it looks like it’s going to be a great movie.

schnickels @ 09/29/2010 at 9:27 am

I will try anything starring Alexis, She’s soo “missable” on a regular basis (via Gilmore Girls)..

Why Alexis looks kinda whipped on these pics? Still gorgeous though.

Akexis’ eyes are MORE radiant & mesmerizing!

@76
Alexis may not be a convincing ctress like Saoirse (yet) but who really knows; hopefully… she’ll come up even as a decent actress in this as this film got a great cast & with an Oscar winner director.

I think Alexis And Saoirse should be BFF, they almost have the same sparkling blue eyes (though Alexis is much bluer).

@DarkEmpress:
It is pronounced SEER-sha, emphasis on the stuff in capitals

Its great that Alexis bring back her bangs – Hope its real & not a wig!
A reminiscent of GG Season 6. Imho, its her best hair style ever
http://www.belindadao.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/alexis-bledel-bangs.jpg

Seeing that Alexis had replaced Carey Mulligan, the director/producer (who did last year’s Precious) must have seen some talent / worth on her just like the other respected actor/director Robert Redford (The Conspirator)… well good luck & work it girl!

http://www.screenrush.co.uk/article/fichearticle_gen_carticle=18501039.html

Awesome pics!
Alexis looks like she already emoting on a scene already while Saoirse, being so young as she is just looks playful
Anyways, JJ don’t overexpose this beauties much (most esp. Alexis) she’s/.they’re not a “famewh0re and will never be!!!

#85, I have seen more pics. Saoirse was talking to a guy, maybe a crew member, that’s why she was like that. That’s usually her personality.

Alexis is sooooooo beautiful without make up

Sounds interesting!
omg Alexis is as beautiful as a porcelain doll!! <3

Alexis is beautiful, she will always looks pretty no matter what. Not loving her sweatshirt though as it looks worn out…

schuellen @ 09/30/2010 at 1:30 am

Alexis is looking mighty fine as if remembering her Gilmore days in season 1 when she’s still fondly wearing those converse shoes. And If you’re really unaware of Alexis bio; who would really ever thought that she’s “13 yrs. older” than Saoirse?!?!

I like them both! Beauty and classiness combined. Both talented in their own ways. Go, go, go… Yo’ Sistahs!

@wispa:

I disagree with you but respect your opinion. Alexis to me doesn’t look a lot younger than Saoirse and I’m Saoirse’s age. She looks younger than her age perhaps but not younger or the same age as Saoirse.

hahaha Yea seriously. You can put alexis next to a picture of a newborn and count on some alexis bledel fan to post how the baby looks haggard and old next to alexis and alexis looks like a fetus next to the baby. She looks good for her age yes,but let’s get real, WAY younger than Saoirse? I don’t think so.
On a different note.Seems like this is going to be a fun movie.

Well I wish that they could be “besties” (even w/ the big age gap) As they have something in common already… those shining blue eyes LOL

everleigh @ 10/01/2010 at 3:16 am

I really like both of them a lot (through Gilmore Girls & Lovely Bones. And still can’t believe that they’re on a film together as they’re somewhat belongs on a different actress type/generation actually – but anyways its much of a good thing.

thunderbell @ 10/01/2010 at 7:31 am

Awesome pair!

Saoirse is the real stunner here. She’s a pure actress, whose range is frighteningly good. Alexis is lucky to get to act with a future regular at the Oscars!

I agree with the poster above me, Saoirse is an AWESOME stunning actress. I LOVE her! She’s amazing and I wish her the best for her career. She looks really happy-go-lucky in these pictures too. So cute! Happy for Alexis Bledel that she gets to be in a movie with someone as amazing as Saoirse.

I love Saoirse! Excited to watch anything she’s in! ^_^

Yay! A Saoirse Ronan movie! I love her, she is so amazingly gifted and beautiful. I think it’s lovely that her name means “freedom” in Irish ^_^

Saoirse Ronan rocks.. I will see everything this actress does in the future!! Love to see her play a young Meryl Streep – Go Sersh

@Zeezee

OMG, I totally agree with you about Saoirse playing a young Meryl streep! :) She’s awesome and I love to watch her in movies!

@Boydsey:

Totally agree.. Saoirse is now a major talent, and already has an awesome filmography.. I think Hanna, and Violet and Daisy will catapult her into superstardom, and everybody will be able to pronounce her name with ease !!!!

Oh, and the reason peeps can’t pronounce her name is because it’s Irish, and you just can’t say it phonetically, unless you’re Irish, of course…but it’s simply pronounced SER-SHA.

Saoirse Ronan is a master at accents and she’s gonna show the world she can do the physical aspect too. Isn’t there anything this girl can’t do?

Just hoping Bledel won’t drag this movie down.

Its somewhat “surreal” actually but on a good way.
