Zac Efron is determined to have someone punch his adorable little face. The tween heartthrob has been lining up a number of Adult Projects that will hopefully help him transition into grittier fare and one of those, "Die In A Gunfight," now has a director.

Deadline reveals that Anthony Mandler, a commercial and music video director who has worked with a number of folks including Rihanna, Drake, Usher, Jay-Z, The Killers, John Legend, T.I., One Republic and Muse will make his feature film debut with "Die In A Gunfight." The Black List approved script from newbie writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari will follow “a fight-prone and death-obsessed young society man who pursues a romance with the daughter of his father’s enemy.” Yowsers. We presume gunfights and death ensue.

No word where this will fall on Efron's slate. He's also got the high-concept Euro actioner "Charlie Countryman" brewing as well, in addition to a Hollywood remake of the nifty Swedish drug drama “Snabba Cash” as well as the con-man tale, “The Art Of The Steal” (not related the documentary of the same name).

Efron will next be seen in the "The Lucky Ones," yet another Kleenex ready bit of emotional baiting based on a book from Nicholas Sparks and he's also in the massive ensemble for "New Year's Eve." Check out some of Mandler's work below.
