Although Kick-Ass 2 proved to be a major disappointment to my cranky self, I still found ’s Hit-Girl a thoroughly charming character worthy of her own movie.
While this isn't likely to happen, Barely Lethal might at least present something similar.
The action comedy actually sounds a bit like Hit-Girl’s storyline in Kick-Ass 2.
(True Grit) plays a teenage assassin who has had enough of her corpse-producing line of work and decides that she, you know, just wants to have a "normal" adolescence. Therefore the lethal killer enrolls at a high school. This decision doesn’t sit well with her former handler and current nemesis, Victoria ().
plays Steinfeld’s mentor, while Game of Thrones' portrays a rival assassin.
Barely Lethal has begun principal photography and should be in theaters sometime in 2014.
