Jessica Alba is set to play a villain in thriller Barely Lethal.

The Honey star is said to be joining Hailee Steinfeld and Samuel L Jackson in Kyle Newman's movie, reported Screen Daily.

Hailee is already on board to play Megan, a teenage assassin who is hunted by a former associate after she fakes her own death and decides to enrol in a suburban high school - and Jessica has been cast as baddie Victoria Knox, who pursues her.

Rush Hour director Brett Ratner will co-produce the film, which has been written by John D'Arco, with John Cheng.

Production is scheduled to start in mid-October.

Jessica, who previously starred in Spy Kids 4: All The Time In The World, will next star in sequels Sin City: A Dame To Kill For and Machete Kills.

The mother-of-two will also be in coming-of-age drama Dear Eleanor alongside Luke Wilson, action-comedy Stretch with Chris Pine and Patrick Wilson, and comedy mini-series The Spoils Of Babylon opposite Will Ferrell, Tim Robbins and Kristen Wiig.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
