The Wrap report that production is tentatively slated to begin in January 2014, which would hopefully make for a late 2014 / early-to-mid 2015 release slot.
“Term Life” follows Nick Barrow, who specializes in planning heists and tricks before selling them off to the highest bidder. When one of his heists goes bad, everyone involved wants him dead, from mob bosses to contract killers and corrupt cops.
Vaughn will both star and produce through his Wild West Picture Show banner, producing alongside Victoria Vaughn (The Dilemma) and Micah Mason (Couples Retreat).
Billingsley and Vaughn’s Couples Retreat took north of $170m. at the global box office back in 2009, with the film marking the director’s feature debut behind the camera.
Partnering with Vaughn to make Term Life his sophomore feature definitely has my interest piqued. The premise sounds like a lot of fun, and I may well have to seek out Liberman and Thornborrow’s original graphic novel in the next few weeks.
Vaughn’s latest movie, The Internship, opened in the US over the weekend and will be released here in the UK on 3rd July. He’ll then be seen later this year in Ken Scott’s Delivery Man, the US remake of the French-Canadian hit movie, Starbuck, set for release in October and November in the UK and US, respectively.
