Hailee Steinfeld will kill kill kill and do algebra in Barely Lethal

Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) is set to become a teenage assassin in the film Barely Lethal. It’s coming from Brett Ratner’s production company, with a script by John D’Arco (known for his “Camera and Electrical Department” credits!) and directed by Kyle Newman (the guy who did Fanboys). Well, I guess people got to start somewhere. I shall hold of judgement until we get more details, but hopefully things come together and get get a nice tale. It’s too early to tell just who the target audience is, though I wouldn’t be surprised if it is set more towards teen girls with Barely Lethal‘s plot description:

Megan, who is raised at a boarding school that trains children to be assassins. She has a quirky sense of humor but is clueless about normal life, so when she relocates to a small rural town she discovers dealing with high school is just as hard.

Either way, female fighting movies will generate a certain amount of cross-interest, so there is that going for it if nothing else.
