The first image from the upcoming Barely Lethal has arrived, featuring Hailee Steinfeld and Samuel L. Jackson has arrived, which you can see above and below. The images come via EW, which describes the film as ‘Mean Girls with guns’, although we’ll have to wait and see whether that’s even close to true.
Here’s the official synopsis: ‘Weary of her life as a teenage Special Ops Agent, ‘Megan’ (Hailee Steinfeld) fakes her own death and enrolls in a suburban high school. Hoping to live the life of a “normal” teenager, she discovers that being popular, dating, and fitting in isn’t as easy as she thought. Complicating matters is ‘Victoria’ (Jessica Alba), her former handler and current nemesis, who enlists rival teen Special Agent ‘Heather’ (Sophie Turner) to go undercover at her high school and capture her. Academy Award® nominee Samuel L. Jackson portrays Megan’s mentor, ‘Hardman.’’
Barely Lethal is due out this autumn.
