Thompson on Hollywood

With Saoirse Ronan in talks for the title role in Relativity's The Brothers Grimm: Snow White opposite The Social Network's Armie Hammer as the Prince, the question arises: is Ronan too young for Hammer? While it's traditional fairy tale form to have girls paired with men, Ronan, who will be 17 in April, seems a young teenager to Hammer's mature-looking 24. (Julia Roberts is playing the Evil Queen.)

Clearly, Ronan is growing into movie stardom. (Here's her killer slate.) She carries action thriller Hanna, which opens April 8 release of Hanna, from her Atonement director Joe Wright. Check out the clips and trailer below.

As for Ronan's involvement with The Hobbit, she confirms to 24 Frames that nothing is certain: "Pete is adding a lot of characters in the film adaption…Hopefully they have a part for me." She is fond of shooting on location New Zealand and the "amazing family unit down there," and adds that The Hobbit is "a little bit lighter than Lord of the Rings' and Pete is quite a lighthearted man. He likes to have fun."

Ronan also has Effie in development with director Richard Laxton. Orlando Bloom and Emma Thompson are also attached for the drama about Victorian artists and poet John Ruskin. But first, here are the clips and trailer for Hanna with Cate Blanchett and Erica Bana:
