Resurrected just weeks after Universal dropped out, the adaptation of the graphic novel Term Life, to star Vince Vaughn and Hailee Steinfeld, is set for pre-sales to global distributors at the American Film Market (AFM), running Nov 6th through 13th.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, CAA has packaged and arranged financing for the adaptation; QED International will finance and produce it.
Brendon was impressed by the comic series' concept, simply on the basis of this Amazon blurb:
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!
It's a wonder they're having trouble getting this made. What could have put Universal off?
