Image Comics’ Term Life To Become A Vince Vaughn Movie

term lifeI’ve never read the original Term Life comics, but I like the basic premise. Here’s a description poached from Amazon:

If Nick Barrow can stay alive for 21 days he’ll die happy! Everyone Nick knows wants him dead; Mob bosses, contract killers, and dirty cops. Performing the last act of a desperate man, Nick takes out a million dollar insurance policy on himself, payable to his estranged daughter. The problem? The policy doesn’t take effect for 21 days… and Nick knows they’ll be lucky to be alive for twenty-one hours!

So, it’s coming down to his deadline of deadlines and this Nick Barrow chap has decided to finally do something good. At the same time, he’s racing to outpace the payback from everybody he’s burned in the past. That’s a great premise, and I take my hat off to A. J. Lieberman for cooking it up.

It’s no wonder, really, that a film version is in the works. There’s suspense and redemption and a lot of running around with guns – three staples of the cinematic diet.

While they’ve given no indication on who will be writing the screenplay for the Term Life movie, The Hollywood Reporter say that Couples Retreat‘s Peter Billingsley is set to direct and Vince Vaughn will star.

I need to get myself a copy of this book…
