After making a name for himself in the High School Musical trilogy Zac Efron has been in multiple light and airy box office hits. Finally he has landed a role with some kick to it, playing in the new untitled film from Mandate Pictures. Although original working title sounded like ‘The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.’
“Efron will play a suburban teen who travels to Eastern Europe to “find himself”, according to the studio. While travelling he falls for a young woman and the only thing standing between them is her dangerous and violent ex-boyfriend who has ties to the criminal underworld.”
Seen above surfing at Bondi Beach in Australia, this sounds like a great role for the young actor.
We don’t know who will play his love interest or any other supporting roles yet but as long as they fill in nicely it should be a success. That is as long as he is freshly shaven.
