Playing Vince Vaughn's daughter...
The Wrap (Can A Song Save Your Life>, True Grit) has joined the cast of Universal's action-thriller Term Life, which stars Vince Vaughn. Peter Billingsley will direct from a script by AJ Lieberman, who wrote the original graphic novel that he created with Nick Thornborrow.
Here's a synopsis: 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.
Vince Vaughn, Micah Mason and Victoria Vaughn will produce for Wild West Picture Show Productions. Universal VP of Production Kristin Lowe will oversee for the studio. Billingsley and Vaughn last worked together on Universal's Couples Retreat, which earned $172 million worldwide.
Steinfeld was nominated for an Oscar at the age of 14 for her role in True Grit, and can next be seen in Romeo & Juliet, Ender's Game and John Carney's Can A Song Save Your Life, which was acquired by the Weinstein Company after a bidding war at the Toronto International Film Festival.
