Zac Efron is attached to star in the lead role in the action comedy “The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman” for Bona Fide and Mandate Pictures reports The Playlist.
The story follows Charlie who, after the death of his mother, heads to Europe to find himself. There, he meets a girl and falls in love.
Catch is she’s the girlfriend of an insanely violent crime boss with a gang of thugs at his disposal. However that won’t deter Charlie who endures one bruising beat down after another to woo the girl.
Shia LaBeouf was previously attached to the role last year. Matt Drake (“Project X”) penned the script and the film is currently out to directors after the previously attached Dante Ariola departed. Albert Berger, Ron Yerxa, Dean Parisot and William Horberg will produce.
