Hailee Steinfeld, star of True Grit, has just signed on to the new movie Barely Legal. Although the name's a bit of a groaner, Hailee will play a 16-year-old international assassin who fakes her own death to have a normal high school experience. Jessica Alba is set to play the film's villain, and Samuel L. Jackson will play Steinfeld's mentor. The plot sounds interesting, although good movies containing Alba are few and far between.
