Vince Vaughn wants to make an action movie. Correction: he really wants to make an action movie. The past little while has seen his name get attached to atypical material for the comic actor, including the thriller "The Risk Agent" and the Randall Wallace-penned "Gunslingers." And now his name has been linked to another action-oriented project.

Vince Vaughn wants to make an action movie. Correction: he really wants to make an action movie. The past little while has seen his name get attached to atypical material for the comic actor, including the thriller "The Risk Agent" and the Randall Wallace-penned "Gunslingers." And now his name has been linked to another action-oriented project.

Vaughn has signed up to star in "Triple Time." Penned by Michael J. Wilson and Peter Billingsley (the latter will direct), the film will find Vaughn playing a U.S. Marshall who crashes weddings, to score on single women who has to transport a prisoner accused of causing an environmental disaster, to Washington, D.C. But when their plane explodes, they have to team up to figure out who is behind the conspiracy. So sort of a more topical, less funny "Midnight Run"? Hooray?

Certainly, for both Vaughn and Billingsley who last teamed on "Couples Retreat," this is a definite shift in direction. And we suppose we're curious to see what Action Movie Vaughn can do. But mostly, we still really like Funny Vaughn, so we're of mixed minds. But we'd wager he's tired of doing the same role in each movie, and this is a chance to do something entirely different. "The Risk Agent" is out and about at AFM so we'll see if it can generate enough heat to roll in front of cameras. [Variety]
