Hailee Steinfeld in Term Life

MANILA, Philippines – Vince Vaughn and Hailee Steinfeld (photo) play father and daughter who are out of options and out of time in the crime thriller Term Life.   

Directed by Peter Billingsley (who served as executive producer of Marvel’s Iron Man), Term Life is based on the graphic novel by A.J. Lieberman and Nick Thornborrow about an unscrupulous criminal Nick Barrow (Vaughn) who takes out a million dollar life insurance policy making his daughter Cate (Steinfeld), his sole beneficiary. With the underworld organization trailing his every step to prevent him from receiving his payout, he must outwit them and protect his daughter at all times until the policy takes effect.  

Vaughn, who is widely known for his raunchy, R-rated comedy movies, takes a turn for the dramatic and gritty in Term Life where his character Nick is running from the mob and nowhere to go, decides to finally make amends with his daughter, Cate. 

Steinfeld, one of today’s fast rising actresses, known for her latest roles in Pitch Perfect 2 and Romeo and Juliet, describes her role in Term Life as a typical teenager but also old-school.

Released locally by Pioneer Films, Term Life opens today in cinemas.
