First Look: Hailee Steinfeld Gets 'Barely Lethal' in New Action Comedy
Following a battle in space this year in Ender's Game and a forthcoming encounter with danger alongside Kevin Costner in Three Days to Kill, young actress Hailee Steinfeld is getting into some action of her own. Barely Lethal follows the True Grit star as a young girl raised at a boarding school that trains children to be assassins. But that life is all she's ever known, so she's completely out of her element when she moves to a small town and has to deal with the challenges of high school. Now we have some first look photos from the film that sounds like Hanna meets Kick-Ass, but will it be on par with those fun, stylish films? Look below!
Here's the first photos from Kyle Newman's Barely Lethal from Entertainment Weekly:
Barely Lethal is directed by Kyle Newman (Fanboys) and written by newcomer John D’Arco. The film follows Megan (Hailee Steinfeld), a young international assassin who yearns for a “normal” adolescence, prompting her to fake her own death and enroll in a suburban high school. Jessica Alba plays Victoria, Megan's former handler and current nemesis, who enlists Heather (Sophie Turner) to go undercover at the high school and reacquire the runaway. Samuel L. Jackson portrays Megan’s mentor, Hardman. Main Street Films is slated to distribute the film sometime in 2014, but there's no release date set yet. Interested?
