Alexis Bledel will go from “Gilmore Girls” to stone cold assassin for her latest flick, Violet and Daisy. We previously reported that Saoirse Ronan had been cast as one-half of the deadly duo and Variety has confirmed that Bledel is the other. The movie will mark the directorial debut of Oscar winning screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher.
Violet and Daisy centers on a pair of teenage assassins (Ronan and Bledel) who are lured into what is supposed to be just another quick and easy job, only to find complications as the man they’re supposed to kill is not what they expected. Previously there was word that Carey Mulligan would be playing the role but we guess that was just a rumor.
Isn’t Bledel a bit old to be playing a teenager? We’re pretty sure she’s in her late twenties but her wide eyes and youthful face seem to trump all logic. Violet and Daisy will co-star James Gandolfini and feature an original script from Fletcher.
We wonder what Bledel’s mom will think of this? And by mom we mean Lauren Graham (we can’t let it go)!
What do you think of Bledel playing a teenage assassin? Are you interested in seeing the film?
