'The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman' Casts Zac Efron Now

Zac Efron

Last April we heard that Shia LaBeouf was starring in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, a new action thriller that would have marked the directorial debut of commercials director Dante Ariola. However, LaBeouf is no longer going to be in the film, so The Playlist reports the Zac Efron will step up to star in the story of a boy who meets a girl in Europe only to find out that she has an insanely violent crime boss for a boyfriend. But since love knows no bounds, Charlie keeps taking punches just to win over the girl of his dreams and keep her safe. In addition, apparently Ariola is no longer directing the project either.

The script landed on the 2007 Black List, and for a script that may very well give away the end of the film in the title, that's certainly an impressive feat. Matt Drake is behind the screenplay, and the writer is also responsible for another intriguing project in the form of Project X, the tightly wrapped low budget comedy from producers Todd Phillips and Joel Silver. As for Efron, this marks another interesting project for his future as the actor not only has his own production company at Warner Bros., but he'll also be starring in the remake of Snabba Cash. As someone interested in seeing where Efron takes his career, I'm somewhat interested in this new project. How about you?
