Vince Vaughn’s production company has teamed up with Universal to produce “Term Life,” the feature adaptation of AJ Lieberman’s graphic novel of the same name. Lieberman has penned the script, with “Couple’s Retreat’s” Peter Billingsley directing. In these new images, the cast is assembled, including the villain of the film, Bill Paxton.
“Term Life” stars Vince Vaughn (“Couples Retreat,”) as Nick Barrow, a man on the run, and his daughter Cate Barrow, played by actress Hailee Steinfeld (“Ender’s Game.”) Vaughn and Steinfeld are trying to escape from Detective Keenan, a dirty cop played by Bill Paxton (“Edge of Tomorrow,”) and his partners, Miller and Mosley, who are played by Shea Whigham (“Agent Carter,”) and Mike Epps (“The Hangover.”) If they can survive, Steinfeld becomes the sole benefactor of a million dollar life insurance policy, hence the title, “Term Life.”
The film also features an incredible supporting cast, including Jon Favreau (“Iron Man,”) Jonathan Banks (“Better Call Saul,”) Annabeth Gish (“The X -Files,”) Terrance Howard (“Iron Man,”) and Taraji P. Henson (“Empire.”)
Nick Barrow (Vince Vaughn) plans and sells heists to the highest bidder. But when his latest job goes horribly wrong and the son of a major drug cartel leader (William Levy) is assassinated, he finds himself being hunted by the head of the cartel, Viktor Vasquez (Jordi Molla). To clear his name, Nick must expose the dirty cops who committed the crime (Bill Paxton, Mike Epps, Shea Whigham). With both the Cartel and the cops tracking Nick, he does the only thing he can think of to help his estranged daughter, Cate (Hailee Steinfeld): he takes out a million dollar life insurance policy on himself with her as the beneficiary. But the policy will not take effect for twenty-one days and now his enemies also have their sights on Cate. With the help from his well-connected criminal friend (Jonathan Banks), Nick is forced to take Cate on the run to keep them both alive while trying to be a father for the very first time. Reconnecting with his daughter just might kill him!
“Term Life” opens in theaters April 29.
