Count not one, but two more projects for the 22-year-old California native. According to Variety, Zac could join the cast of The Lucky One within the next two weeks.
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.
Along with The Lucky One, New York Mag reports that Zac is interested in another project called Die in a Gun Fight, from recent NYU graduates 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.”
