Zac Efron Will Run Cocaine For Warner Bros.

Written by on April 15, 2010 

Zac Efron, who has shown some surprising star power in Me and Orson Welles and 17 Again, is set to star and produced in a remake of the Swedish thriller Snabba Cash, Heat Vision reports.

Warner Bros. recently won the “heavy” Hollywood bidding war on the film based on a the hit novel by Jens Lapidus. The thriller “followed three interconnected storylines involving drugs and organized crime, with the main character a young financial wizard who hopes to strike it rich quickly by becoming a runner for a coke dealer.”

The deal, reportedly in the high six figured has a “short fuse” clause which means Warners has to get on it or the rights “revert back to the producers.” So expect to see this remake gear up pretty fast. I really think Efron has a future, unlike some of his other “heartthrob” peers. I’ll have to check out the original, but I’m definitely excited for this project. Efron is also attached to a CIA agent thriller titled Fire, but that project may get extinguished (I’m sorry).

Are you excited to see Zac Efron peddle drugs?
