Term Life

Term Life is a 2016 American action-drama based on the graphic novel of the same name. It is directed by Peter Billingsley from a screenplay by A.J. Lieberman. The film stars Vince Vaughn, who also produces the film, Hailee Steinfeld, Jonathan Banks, Mike Epps, Jordi Molla, Shea Whigham, William Levy, Taraji P. Henson, Annabeth Gish, and Terrence Howard. The film was released on April 29, 2016, in a limited release and through video on demand by Focus World. The film received negative reviews.

Premise

A thief (Vaughn) who plans and sells heists to the highest bidder takes his daughter (Hailee Steinfeld) on the lam when a job goes bad. Hunted by mob bosses, contract killers and dirty cops, he takes out a life insurance policy on himself to leave something for her.

Production

Production came to an abrupt halt when Universal decided to cancel the film in October 2013, just a month after casting Hailee Steinfeld. The film was then revived a month later by QED International and PalmStar Entertainment, who co-financed and produced the film with Universal on board to handle U.S. distribution. Filming began on March 1, 2014, with a casting call issued in Grantville, Georgia, and concluded on April 22, 2014.

Release

Originally Universal Pictures was set to distribute the film. However, Focus World ended up getting distribution rights to the film. The film was originally scheduled to be released on March 1, 2016, through video on demand, prior to opening in a limited release on April 8, 2016. However, it was delayed to April 29, 2016, with the film opening in a limited release and through video on demand.
