Zac Efron is heading into fantasy territory. Fresh off his role in Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy, Heat Vision reports that Efron is teaming up with producer Akiva Goldsman for a mystery supernatural project at Warner Bros. called The Falling. The logline is being kept under wraps for now, but the story is said to be “an edgy thriller centering around an otherworldly being.” Efron will star in the film and will produce alongside Goldsman, Tory Tunnell, and Joby Harold (All You Need Is Kill).
The story idea was brought to Goldman’s attention by Warner Bros., and Goldsman then hammered out a full story with Harold. The search now begins for a screenwriter to pen the script. Goldsman most recently wrapped his directorial debut, a fantasy pic called Winter’s Tale. A screenwriter by trade, Goldsman won the Oscar for penning A Beautiful Mind and was also responsible for writing I Am Legend and I, Robot.
