Coming off his portrayal of reluctant crime boss Frank Semyon on season 2 of “True Detective,” Vince Vaughn continues his foray into more serious films with “Term Life.” The film follows Nick Barrow (Vaughn), a criminal wanted around town by various hit men, who hopes to
stay alive long enough for his life insurance policy to kick in and pay
out for his estranged daughter (Hailee Steinfeld).
Vaughn and Steinfeld are joined by a rather stacked cast including Jon Favraeu, Jonathan Banks, Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard, and Bill Paxton. It’s directed by a longtime comedy pal of Vaughn’s, Peter Billingsley. Billingsley is known more for his acting and producing, but also directed the film “Couple’s Retreat,” which Vaughn also starred alongside Jon Favreau.
Focus World will release “Term Life” in theaters, on VOD and digital download on April 29th.
