Vince Vaughn in Action for 'Triple Time' from Director Peter Billingsley

Vince Vaughn

Yes, Vince Vaughn has seen some action in Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but since then, he's mostly been a man of comedy in films like Wedding Crashers, The Break-Up, The Dilemma and more. Now he's signing up for a straight-up action thriller called Triple Time that has A Christmas Story star turned filmmaker Peter Billingsley lined up to direct. The film would followed Vaughn as a broke U.S. marshal tasked with escorting a prisoner accused of an environmental disaster to Washington, D.C. When their transport plane explodes, the unlikely pair must work together to figure out who is behind the conspiracy, which may include one of them. Frankly, I'm surprised this isn't an action comedy. Read on!

It sounds like Safe House, but with a slight twist. Having Vaughn involved would normally make us think this was like Bulletproof with Adam Sandler and Damon Waynans, but it sounds like Vaughn is getting serious with this one. The actor will also produce through his Wild West Pictures Show banner with his wife Victoria. As for Billingsley, this will be his first time directing action (he made his big screen directing debut with Couples Retreat), but he did serves as an executive producer on Iron Man (he's very good friends with Jon Favreau as well). I'm not sure I will be able to buy Vaughn as an action hero unless he changes his big screen image a bit, but I'm willing to give it a shot. Stay tuned.

Apparently Ethan needs to watch Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Vince didn't see ANY action in that movie. No trigger pulls, no punching, no running, no driving.

Victoria is his sister, not his wife. I think he will do just fine. I've seen him in serious scenes and he was very convincing. An average type guy in an unusual situation is more convincing than an unrealistic, emotionless, stone cold bruce willis type in my opinion.
