Vince Vaughn is looking to step outside the box a bit. Variety reports that Vaughn has signed on to star in the action-thriller Triple Time. Vaughn will play a broke U.S. Marshall “who’s tasked with escorting a prisoner accused of an environmental disaster to Washington D.C.” The pair’s transport plane explodes, forcing them to work together in order to figure out who’s behind the conspiracy. Peter Billingsley (Couples Retreat) will direct from a script by Billingsley and Michael J. Wilson.
Triple Time marks one of a number of projects that Vaugh has signed on to recently, including a feature adaptation of The Rockford Files and Braveheart screenwriter Randall Wallace’s Gunslingers. Vaughn recently wrapped the Shawn Levy comedy The Internship with Owen Wilson and is next set to film the comedy Starbuck with Chris Pratt.
