Zac Efron will star in a new thriller "The Falling"
I just realized I have never seen a Zac Efron movie. You would think as a film critic who sees hundreds of films a year, I would have accidentally seen one of these. I have nothing against the guy, I just happened to have missed HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 1,2 and 3, HAIRSPRAY, 17 AGAIN, CHARLIE ST. CLOUD, THE LUCKY ONE, and this past year’s THE PAPERBOY (which I do plan on seeing).
Anyway, Zac Efron is gonna tackle the thriller genre by starring in a new film at Warner Bros. titled THE FALLING. Efron has his own production company (who knew?) called Ninjas Runnin’ Wild Productions and will team with Akiva Goldsman to produce the mysterious supernatural project. Goldsman has written and produced several films I have seen (I, ROBOT, I AM LEGEND, THE DA VINCI CODE, A BEAUTIFUL MIND and several others). Maybe by the time THE FALLING is released, I’ll have seen an Efron flick. (THR)
