Count not one, but two more projects for Zac Efron.
The 22-year-old California native is in talks to star in The Lucky One, according to Variety.
Based on the novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks, the film centers on a Marine who survives three tours in Iraq and attributes his good fortune to a photograph he carried of a woman he has never met. He sets out to meet his good-luck charm when he returns to North Carolina.
In addition, New York Mag also reports that Zac is interested in another project called Die in a Gun Fight, from recent NYU grads Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari.
The paper reports about the script, “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.”
So many projects — looks like we’ll be seeing a lot of Zac for many years to come!
