Although Vince Vaughn is best known for comedy roles, he’s sometimes proved he can be a very good dramatic actor. He’s now getting into a bit of action drama, as Variety reports he’s signed on to star in the action-thriller Triple Time.
Peter Billingsley is set to direct the film, which will see Vaughn as a US Marshal who is escorting a prisoner accused of environmental terrorism. What’s supposed to be an easy assignment gets increasingly complicated, with the Marshal having to work with the convict to unravel a vast conspiracy after their transport plane explodes, even though one of them may be involved. So it’s a little bit The Fugitive and a little bit Con Air.
Billingsley will direct from a screenplay he co-wrote with Michael J. Wilson. The movie is currently looking for buyers at the American Film Market.
