When Megan craves a normal adolescence, the filmmaker revealed that she approaches her new school as a mission.

"She treats high school like a ­mission. Her briefing is Teen Vogue, Seventeen, and everything from Mean Girls to Clueless."

Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) co-stars in the film, which doesn't have a release date set at this time.

Barely Lethal comes to theaters May 29th, 2015.
