It looks like Director Scotts Hicks could cast Zac Efron in The Lucky One, a film adaption from the best selling author Nicholas Sparksâ€™ novel by the same name. Get the scoop here on Efronâ€™s possible new movie role with videos and photos after the jump.
High School Musicalâ€™s Zac Efron, who just celebrated at the premiere of his latest movie entitled Charlie St. Cloud, is already in talks to sign a deal with Warner Brothers to star as the lead in The Lucky One.
If he does ink a deal, Efron would play a marine in a terrific love story straight from the pages of The Notebook writerâ€™s latest novel The Lucky One. The story follows a marine who successfully makes it through three tours of duty in Iraq. Returning home to North Carolina, the Marineâ€™s new mission is to find the women in a picture has been holding, yet he has never met.
Still fresh in the pre-production stages, from producers Denise D Novi and Kevin McCormick, an official synopsis for Zac Efron in The Lucky One has not been released. Assuming the movie won’t stray far from the bookâ€™s plot hereâ€™s the synopsis:
â€śAfter U.S. Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman buried in the dirt during his tour of duty in Iraq, he experiences a sudden streak of luck — winning poker games and even surviving deadly combat. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph — his lucky charm.
Back home in Colorado, Thibault can’t seem to get the woman in the photograph out of his mind and he sets out on a journey across the country to find her. But Thibault is caught off guard by the strong attraction he feels for the woman he encounters in North Carolina- Elizabeth, a divorced mother — and he keeps the story of the photo, and his luck, a secret. As he and Elizabeth embark upon a passionate love affair, his secret soon threatens to tear them apart — destroying not only their love, but also their lives.â€ť
