Eric Bana Can Beat Me Up Any Old Day

Eric Bana fondly recalled his screen time with Hanna co-star Saoirse Ronan while appearing on the Today show this morning.  “Beating the hell out of each other was a good way to bond,” he said. “It’s a good starting point.”  Bana plays Ronan’s father in the flick, but says they act more like sister and brother.  Hanna, also co-starring Cate Blanchett, is about a girl trained by her father to be an assasin.  She is then sent on a mission across Europe while being tracked by an intelligence agent.
