Hold on to your pants, because another Nicholas Sparks novel is coming to a theater near you!
Sparks' novel The Lucky One is the latest of his works to be turned into a feature film, and Zac Efron is reportedly being tapped to play the lead! Zac would play a former marine who survives three tours in Iraq and attributes his survival to a picture of a woman he has never met. Once he returns to North Carolina, he sets out to find this mystery woman.
Zac is also reportedly attached to Die in a Gun Fight, a new script by recent NYU graduates and first-time screenwriters Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari. Check out a bit about the plot and Zac's character:
In the Tarantino-esque blend of Gossip Girl, True Romance, and Romeo and Juliet, Efron would play Ben, an underachieving, deadbeat son of a famous New York high-society attorney who gets himself in over his head when he falls for the daughter of his father's nemesis — a girl who is already busy being stalked by an obsessive French professor.
Zac is certainly doing a good job of breaking out of his clean, teen image and reaching a more adult audience. With several films that he is reportedly attached to, he really is the future of Hollywood!
