Zac Efron continues to land roles that will break him out of his type cast in a film that has been compared to Pulp Fiction! The films producer Albert Berger, confirmes that Efron has been cast in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. Shia LaBeouf was once attached to star in the role.
Efron will play the role of “Charlie who after the death of his mother, heads to Europe to find himself. There, he meets a girl and falls in love. The trouble is she already belongs to an insanely violent crime boss with a gang of thugs at his disposal, but that won’t deter Charlie who endures one bruising beat down after another to woo the girl and keep her out of harm’s way.”
I am not a huge fan of Efron, but he really had a solid role to show off his acting skills. Matt Drake wrote the script for the film. Currenltym, there is not a director attached to this project, but I am sure we will have news on that in the coming weeks.
What are your thoughts of Efron in the role?
