Hailee Steinfeld will appear with Vince Vaughn in the thriller, which is based on a graphic novel. Hailee Steinfeld also stars in the newest adaptation of 'Romeo and Juliet,' which opens next month.
Hot off the crowd-pleasing Toronto hit “Can a Song Save Your Life?,” Oscar-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit”) has closed a deal to join Vince Vaughn in Universal’s action-thriller “Term Life,” TheWrap has learned.
Peter Billingsley will direct from a script by A.J. Lieberman, who wrote the original graphic novel that he created with Nick Thornborrow.
Vaughn stars as Nick Barrow, who plans and sells heists to the highest bidder but finds himself hunted by mob bosses, contract killers and dirty cops. To help his estranged daughter Cate (Steinfeld), he takes out a life insurance policy on himself with her as the beneficiary – but he has to stay alive for 21 days, and takes his daughter on the run.
