Terrence Howard is set to join Vince Vaughn in thriller Term Life.
The Prisoners actor has signed up for Peter Billingsley's film and has been cast as a sheriff, reported Deadline.
Vince is on board to play a criminal who takes out an insurance policy on himself before going on the run with his estranged daughter, played by Hailee Steinfeld.
Terrence's character, Sheriff Braydon, will cross paths with the pair in the big-screen adaptation of AJ Lieberman's graphic novel.
Filming on Term Life is already under way, and is expected to wrap by the end of April.
Terrence, who has starred in Lee Daniels' The Butler, Iron Man and Hustle And Flow, will next be seen in action-thriller Sabotage opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Oscar-nominated actor will reunite with Daniels for hip-hop drama Empire.
