Here's a somewhat official first look at Alexis Bledel, Saoirse Ronan and James Gandolfini in "Precious" scribe Geoffrey Fletcher's directorial debut, the teenage assassin tale "Violet & Daisy."

The images come courtesy of cinematographer Vanja Cernjul's reel (after the jump) and certainly exhibits something at least a bit more upbeat and vibrant than the drag that was "Precious." We're not sure what to expect at all with this but, so far, the black comedy has been described as "Thelma and Louise” meets “Superbad” and “Pulp Fiction” with "plenty of action and lots of girl power."

The story finds Ronan and Bledel (who are shockingly 13 years apart) playing a pair of teenage assassins 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 (presumably Gandolfini) is not what they expected. Also co-starring is "Machete" himself Danny Trejo and Marianne Jean-Baptiste, who'll play a "worldly shape-shifting assassin," whatever that means. We're definitely intrigued.

Shot last fall, the film should be near completion but kinda has TIFF or NYFF written all over it, right? Footage from "Violet & Daisy" can be seen below at the beginning and 1:57 briefly with a longer shot at 2:16. [ShadowAndAct]
