Oh, we sort of thought the kids-shooting-guns-and-kicking-ass-for-laughs genre was done after no one cared about "Kick-Ass 2." Guess not. Another movie in a similar shape, though perhaps with a bit of "Hanna" and "Salt" thrown in too is on the way with "Barely Lethal." The first images from the movie are here via EW, with "True Grit" star Hailee Steinfeld as the kid trying to have a normal high school life until she's forced to use her special skills again.

Oh, we sort of thought the kids-shooting-guns-and-kicking-ass-for-laughs genre was done after no one cared about "Kick-Ass 2." Guess not. Another movie in a similar shape, though perhaps with a bit of "Hanna" and "Salt" thrown in too is on the way with "Barely Lethal." The first images from the movie are here via EW, with "True Grit" star Hailee Steinfeld as the kid trying to have a normal high school life until she's forced to use her special skills again. 

Samuel L. Jackson has the Nic Cage role in this one that will open in the fall. Official synopsis below.

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.’
