Awwww yeeeeah, this banner picture is for you, ladies. I know how much you love pictures of hot, shirtless dudes playing sports. Anyway, the story is that Zac Efron will soon be playing a street tough, a role he was born to play.
The “High School Musical” graduate is attached to star in and produce a remake of “Snabba Cash,” a hot Swedish thriller [trailer after the jump] that was the subject of a heavy Hollywood bidding war before ending up at Warner Bros.
“Snabba,” based on a novel by Jens Lapidus, was a major hit in its home country this year. The film follows three interconnected storylines involving drugs and organized crime, with the main character a young man (played in the original by Joel Kinnaman) who hopes to strike it rich quickly by becoming a runner for a coke dealer. Efron would play the runner in the WB version. [Yahoo/THR]
I’m sure you’re all expecting me to make some crude, gay joke here. Something like, “Zac Efron would probably make a great drug smuggler, he’s already used to picking condoms out of his sh*t.” But I’m taking the high road. That kind of toilet humor is beneath me. Instead I’ll just say that Zac Efron would make a fine drug smuggler. He could hide them in his purse.
