Hailee Steinfeld is Barely Lethal


Deadline is reporting that Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) will star in director Kyle Newman’s comedy Barely Lethal, which was written by John D’Arco.

Steinfeld will play 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. She quickly learns that being popular can be more painful than getting water-boarded.

Brett Ratner, RKO and Hopscotch Features are producing.

Steinfeld’s upcoming credits include Can a Song Save Your Life?, Romeo and Juliet, Ender’s Game, The Homesman and Three Days to Kill.
