Zac Efron is attached to star in an adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis’ graphic novel “Fire” for Universal Pictures says Deadline Hollywood.
Efron will play a college student who is recruited by the CIA, only to find that he has been trained for a program that creates expendable agents.
Bendis will write the script for the movie. Neil Moritz and David Engel will produce while Efron and Jason Barrett will serve as executive producers.
Efron has also signed to star in a “Back to the Future”-like film for Warner Bros. Pictures that will fuse a pitch from Tim Calpin and Kevin Jakubowski, and the Nick Stoller-directed “Algorithm”.
