Vince Vaughn and “Couples Retreat” director Peter Billingsley are set to adapt the graphic novel “Term Life” into an action comedy feature at Universal Pictures.
The nonlinear story centers on a low-life whom everybody wants dead. In a rare act of selflessness, the man takes out a million-dollar policy to benefit his estranged daughter.
Soon after, he realizes it doesn’t take effect for three weeks so he must survive that long in order for it to take effect.
Billingsley will direct, while Vaughn will star in and produce. Victoria Vaughn will also produce.
