High School Musical’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 writer’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 Marine’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 book’s plot here’s the synopsis:

“After 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.”
