Busy Mom Jessica Alba Juggles Playtime, Coffee, and a Bunch of Movies
Coffee for mom and playtime for daughter, as Jessica Alba and her darling Haven spent some bonding time in New York City Friday (September 6). After picking up some java, they headed to a park.
Miss Alba is about to start filming “Barely Lethal” with Samuel L. Jackson and Hailee Steinfeld. The movie, set to begin production later this month, is based on a character named Megan (Steinfeld) who’s a teenage assassin. Megan is hunted by a former associate after she fakes her own death and enrolls in a suburban high school.
The 32-year-old Alba is set to play Victoria Knox, the former handler and arch-nemesis of Megan. Jackson will play Megan’s mentor. “Rush Hour” director Brett Ratner will co-produce the film. No release date has been announced.
Alba, who previously starred in “Spy Kids 4: All The Time In The World,” will next appear in the sequels “Machete Kills” and “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.” The mother of two will also appear in the coming-of-age drama “Dear Eleanor” opposite Luke Wilson, the action-comedy “Stretch” with Chris Pine and Patrick Wilson, and in the drama “How To Make Love Like An Englishman” alongside Pierce Brosnan and Kristin Scott Thomas.
