Samuel L. Jackson Takes Command in the War Room in a Clip from 'Barely Lethal'

A clip from an upcoming action-comedy, co-starring the busiest actor in showbiz, Samuel L. Jackson, titled "Barely Lethal."

Hailee Steinfeld stars as a 16-year-old international assassin who wants to live the regular life of a teen, and who fakes her own death and enrolls as a senior in a suburban high school. 

The super busy Samuel L. Jackson plays her mentor, who trains her in the assassin program.

Directed by Kyle Newman from John D’Arco’s script, the film, which also co-stars Jessica Alba, and Sophie Turner (aka Sansa Stark from "Game of Thrones"), is set for a May 29 theatrical release.
