The story follows a teenage assassin named Megan (Hailee Steinfeld), who decides to fake her own death and enroll at a local high school, to start a new, "normal" life. Samuel L. Jackson plays her handler Hardman, who sends an elite agent (Jessica Alba) to bring Megan back. Check out these photos, then read on to see what director Kyle Newman (Fanboys) has to say about the project.
