Jessica Alba Signs on to ‘Barely Lethal’
Barely Lethal continues to add to its already-impressive cast. The tale of a teenage assassin stars Hailee Steinfeld as the killer kid and Samuel L. Jackson as her teacher. Now, according to Screen Daily, the film will also include Jessica Alba as the film’s main villain Victoria Knox.
The movie, directed by Kyle Newman (Fanboys) and written by John D’Arco, follows Megan, a young hired killer who fakes her death in order to live a normal life.
Barely Lethal is scheduled to start filming on Oct. 17, but doesn’t yet have an announced release date.
