Filming on Hanna to include UK
The major new TV adaptation of the 2011 feature, Hanna, is gearing up to film in several European locations including the UK.
The production is currently setting up in Hungary and will also visit Slovakia and Spain during the lengthy shoot.

Seasoned writer David Farr (McMafia, the Night Manager, Spooks) has penned the drama that was ordered straight to series by Amazon Studios. It comes from Working Title Television and NBCUniversal.
