True Detective season 2 may have stooped far below the bar of expectations set by its predecessor, but Vince Vaughn has still caught the action-thriller bug, as today’s thrilling first trailer for Peter Billingsley’s (Couples Retreat) Term Life attests.
While Vaughn headlines the drama as Nick Barrow, Pitch Perfect 2 and True Grit actress Hailee Steinfeld is on board to complete the father-daughter duo. Term Life will push the pair to the brink, too, given that Vaughn’s character, upon receiving umpteen threats against his life, takes out a comprehensive life insurance policy to carve out a healthy sum to leave to his estranged daughter.
There’s a hitch to that plan, though; said policy doesn’t take into affect for a full 21 days, forcing Nick and his daughter to become fugitives for three weeks in order to shake that looming price on his head. It’s all very ridiculous and over-the-top, »

If True Detective was Vince Vaughn‘s return to drama, the actor is now testing his action-thriller skills with a new film this spring, Term Life. Teaming with True Grit‘s Hailee Steinfeld, the film follows the two as a father-daughter duo who go on the run, with Vaughn’s wanted character having to live for at least 21 days in order to take out a life insurance policy for his daughter.
The first trailer has now landed today, and coming from Peter Billingsley (Couples Retreat), it looks like direct-to-dvd material, but it is in fact getting a little theatrical release. Also starring Bill Paxton, Jonathan Banks, Mike Epps, Jon Favreau, Jordi Molla, Shea Whigham, William Levy, Taraji P. Henson, Annabeth Gish, Terrence Howard, and Cain Velasquez, check out the trailer and poster below.
