Vince Vaughn and Hailee Steinfeld Crime Thriller ‘Term Life’ Gets Revived

It was only two weeks ago that Universal reportedly had cancelled the movie Term Life, starring Vince Vaughn and Hailee Steinfeld.

We’re now in November and all of a sudden it looks like the picture has been rejuvenated.

MarkMeets were told that QED International and Worldview Entertainment will joint finance and produce the Peter Billingsley-directed picture.

Universal will remain involved with domestic distribution of the film.  The picture has Vaughn (producing) and playing a man, “hunted by a ruthless mob, who takes out a life insurance policy on himself to benefit his estranged daughter (Steinfeld), and must survive the next three weeks until it kicks in.”  Based on Andy Lieberman and Nick Thornborrow’s graphic novel, principal photography on Term Life will start next year.

Term tells the story of a low-life whom everybody — including mob bosses, contract killers and dirty cops — wants dead. In a rare act of selflessness (and desperation), the man takes out a million-dollar term life insurance policy to benefit his estranged daughter, but soon after, he realizes it doesn’t take effect for 21 days.

A start date in 2014 is being figured out.
