We are totally here for this new vibe from Zac Efron!
Remember that time Liam Neeson fought a wolf in The Grey? Well, Zac Efron wants to one up that.
Despite Efron being known for his role in High School Musical and upbeat comedies, since his appearance in The Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as the infamous Ted Bundy, he appears to have made a new turn in his career. His brand new survival thriller, Gold, will put him against a barrage of dangerous foes.
“The film will follow two strangers traveling through a desert who stumble across the biggest gold nugget ever found. They hatch a plan to protect and excavate their bounty with one man leaving to secure the necessary equipment.
“The other man remains and must endure harsh desert elements, ravenous wild dogs and mysterious intruders, whilst battling the sinking suspicion that he has been abandoned to his own fate.”
Actor Anthony Hayes (Animal Kingdom) is set to direct and co-star in the film co-written by Polly Smyth.
John Schwarz and Michael Schwarz will produce through their Deeper Water Films banner (Danger Close: The Battle Of Long Tan), alongside Hayes for Rogue Star Pictures. The shoot is due to get underway in Australia this month.
