See Barely Lethal trailer: Hailee Steinfeld has a licence to kill

Hailee Steinfeld is a spy-turned-schoolgirl in a trailer for the upcoming comedy Barely Lethal.

Barely Lethal centres on orphan Megan Walsh (Steinfeld) being trained through her childhood to become a spy.

Walsh chooses to abandon her first mission to capture arms dealer Victoria Knox (Jessica Alba) in order to enroll in high school, but soon finds that she can't quite leave the past behind.

Samuel L Jackson portrays the spymaster who trained Megan, while Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is a fellow agent.

Barely Lethal director Kyle Newman has previously helmed The Hollow, and worked on music videos for Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey.

The comedy opens in the Us later this year.
