Probably the biggest selling point of Amazon’s Hanna — writer David Farr‘s reboot of his 2011 movie, which starred Saoirse Ronan as the title character, Eric Bana as Erik, her father, and Cate Blanchett as Marissa, the evil CIA operative — is the on-screen reunion of Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman. The duo first came to television prominence in the brooding crime series The Killing — playing homicide detective duo Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder — and, on March 29th, they’ll face each other once again in Amazon’s dramatic-thriller. But if you think the chemistry between the two will be reminiscent of AMC’s hit program, you’ve got another thing coming.

During Collider’s set visit to Budapest, Hungary, we had a chance to sit down and speak with Kinnaman and Enos — separately, because we had to roll with Amazon’s kinetic production schedule — and when both were questioned about their relationship in Hanna, they were quick to point out that fans of The Killing may be taken offguard.

People - Lot - People - Relationship - Killing

“I think some people are gonna be a little disappointed, you know, because I know that there are a lot of people that really loved our relationship on The Killing and are very excited to see us play again,” Kinnaman told a small group of press. “I think there’s going to be an automatic longing to sort of see a similar kind of dynamic but there’s not going to be any of that. It’s very different.”

Enos echoed Kinnaman’s sentiments. “There’s no crossover, there’s none,” she said, plainly and simply. “There, we were partners with, like, a completely non-kind of romantic relationship. So we had each other’s back and we were not interested in making out. And here, we are enemies with, potentially, a history. So it’s like the polar opposite which has been fun!”
