Zac Efron: ‘We need to not be afraid to take risks in film’

HollywoodNews.com: When it comes to choosing roles, Zac Efron follows his heart.

He doesn’t get consumed with what will be a blockbuster or not, or whether a film will swell his fame. Hence his choice to star in romantic weepy “Charlie St. Cloud” over Paramount’s tentpole reboot of “Footloose.” “Charlie” fizzled at the summer box office making just over $31 million.

Talking to Wonderland, Efron exclaims, “We need to not be afraid to take risks in film; take cool concepts that might not be commercial but find a way to make them mainstream.

“I want to find things that I can bring something to, that are different, that are cool – for an audience today that’s so intelligent. I know this audience, I’ve grown up with them. I’m a product of this generation and I know how smart we are. I know the material that we crave in movies today – we’re not seeing a lot of it. It’s unfortunate.”

Efron recently attached himself to the thriller “Art of the Steal.” The actor is also starring in the Scott Hicks’ drama “The Lucky One” from Warner Bros. Pictures.

IMDB describes the film’s plot as “A Marine returns to North Carolina after serving three tours in Iraq and searches for the unknown woman he believes was his good luck charm during the war.”
