Zac Efron considering a turn in Nicholas Sparks’ “The Lucky One”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We understand Zac Efron wants to stay busy, but how many projects can the hard-working, handsome talent attach his name to?

Reports are out this morning that Efron, star of Disney’s “High School Musical” franchise as well as Adam Shankman’s remade “Hairspray,” is in negotiations to play the lead in an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ novel, “The Lucky One,” according to Variety. The book follows the story of an Iraq War veteran who tries to find a mysterious woman he found in a photograph, which helped him survive his various tours of duty.

Naturally, this news breaks weeks after similar reports that Efron’s own production slate — Ninjas Runnin’ Wild — has snatched up several potential projects for the actor to consider. And he has been extremely busy working the promotional circuit for his latest picture, “Charlie St. Cloud,” which arrives in theaters on Friday, July 30.

We see “Charlie” tonight, and will have a better grasp on Efron’s future as a dramatist. Up until this point, his role choices have been effervescent bubblegum pop, from “Hairspray” to the cute but disposable “17 Again.” Does he have enough range to carry a picture as a war veteran? We’ll soon find out.
