First Images from 'Barely Lethal' Starring Hailee Steinfeld and Samuel L. Jackson

As if the Battle School of Ender's Game didn't put Hailee Steinfeld through enough, wait until she endures the rigors of public high school.  The first images have been released from Barely Lethal, which has Steinfeld as a teen assassin who fakes her own death and attempts to live a normal life by attending school. Guess which one proves to be more dangerous?

The photos give us a look at Steinfeld in action, plus Samuel L. Jackson as her mentor, the unfortunately-named 'Hardman'. Jessica Alba co-stars as Steinfeld's nemesis, with Sophie Turner as a rival sent undercover at the same school.

Directed by Kyle Newman, Barely Lethal opens this fall. [EW]
