The first images from director Kyle Newman’s (Fanboys) upcoming action comedy Barely Lethal have landed online. The film stars Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) as a 16-year-old international assassin yearning for a “normal” adolescence who fakes her own death and enrolls as a senior in a suburban high school. Samuel L. Jackson plays the government agent charged with training the young girl, and we get a look at both Steinfeld and Jackson in these debut images. This is Newman’s first feature film since 2009’s Fanboys, so I’m interested to see how his follow-up feature turns out.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images. The film also stars Jessica Alba, Jaime King, Sophie Turner, Rob Huebel, Thomas Mann, Gabriel Basso, and Rachael Harris. Barely Lethal will open in theaters sometime this fall.
