Zac Efron to be THE LUCKY ONE who has to DIE IN A GUNFIGHT

I don’t care about Zac Efron. I just don’t care.

After making his mark in the HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL series, the actor has jumped into other, truly brilliant fare like 17 AGAIN and the upcoming instant classic CHARLIE ST. CLOUD, and according to reports, he’s picked up two new projects to add to that list of wonderful films.

All joking, sarcasm, and disapproval aside, the actor has indeed nabbed up two new roles, and while I did dig him in the great film, ME AND ORSON WELLES, I don’t have much hope for these two flicks.

First, Efron has lined up the lead in yet another Nicholas Spark’s film, based on his book The Lucky One, where he’ll play a soldier who holds a photo of a random girl during his time at war, and it proves to be some sort of lucky charm. In true Sparks' fashion, he is sent home, and goes on the hunt for this girl, in what will no doubt be an uninteresting mess of emotional mush that girls will chew up like a candy dipped in the tears of a soap opera star. So, yeah, that’s going to happen.

In other, arguably more interesting news, he will lead a film called DIE IN A GUNFIGHT, which has been called a “Tarantino-esque blend of Gossip Girl, TRUE ROMANCE and Romeo And Juliet." He will play a “deadbeat underachiever,” which may be a stretch, but hey, as long as it isn’t another musical or a second Nicholas Sparks adaptation, this kid will be happy. Sure, I’m not the biggest fan of the actor, but if anything was proven by ME AND ORSON WELLES, this kid can really act, so hopefully this role could prove that.

    Ugh. I'm so sick of Nicholas Sparks and his plug and play emotionally manipulative books that get turned into emotionally manipulative terrible movies. When will it end?!
    P.S. I do like Zac Efron so I'll probably have shamefully watch The Lucky One while shoving handfuls of popcorn in my mouth to avoid saying terrible things about the movie as a whole. =X

    If I might –perhaps you should consider adding a few images. I dont mean to disrespect what youve said; its very enlightening, indeed. However, I think would respond to it more positively if they could be something tangible to your ideas. Keep it up, but put a little more into it next time.
