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.

    @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

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

  • wynne

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

  • felicity

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

  • 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.

  • 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”…

  • ulrich

    @37
    Still many are digging her blondish-do; think that she looks like a bombshell!!!

  • lough

    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

    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

  • chic&hip

    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!

  • saab

    @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.

  • saab

    @21
    Their leading man is James Gandolfini LOL

  • fudgie

    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?!

  • chynnna

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

  • team-alexis

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

  • jerxhu

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

  • mony_mony

    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…

  • vanfair

    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…

  • Tony

    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

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

  • 3mm

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

  • @67-68

    Akexis’ eyes are MORE radiant & mesmerizing!

  • louleahl

    @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.

  • bohochic

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

  • Cairi

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

  • koshie

    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

  • sterling

    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!

  • maire

    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.

  • Dani

    Alexis is sooooooo beautiful without make up

  • Anne

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

  • pinkidoo

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

  • phat-ruley

    Its looks like that they’ll be filming all over NYC.

  • schuellen

    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?!?!

  • rolopolo

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

  • ali

    @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.

  • Josh

    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.

  • rintintin

    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

    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

    Awesome pair!
