Sometimes They Make It Too EasyTween girl heartthrob Zac Efron is busying attaching himself to projects in an effort to dirty his squeaky clean image. This year has seen the actor -- and now producer -- link himself to a couple of intriguing projects including the Hollywood remake of the nifty Swedish drug drama "Snabba Cash" as well as con-man tale, "The Art Of The Steal" (not related the documentary of the same name). He's got one more grimy picture to his name.

Sometimes They Make It Too Easy



Tween girl heartthrob Zac Efron is busying attaching himself to projects in an effort to dirty his squeaky clean image. This year has seen the actor -- and now producer -- link himself to a couple of intriguing projects including the Hollywood remake of the nifty Swedish drug drama "Snabba Cash" as well as con-man tale, "The Art Of The Steal" (not related the documentary of the same name). He's got one more grimy picture to his name.

Deadline reports that Media Rights Capital is set to pick up "Die In A Gunfight," a script from newbie writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari. The story 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.

The film will be produced by the Mark Gordon Company as well as Efron's Ninjas Runnin' Wild banner. File this under "Manly Efron Project #A8382." Are you ready to see Efron get his coiffed hair messy and break his fingernails? We're still having a hard time picturing it.
