Zac Efron has signed a deal at Universal for Fire, an adaptation of a graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis & published by Image Comics, reports Deadline Hollywood. Zac will play a college student who is recruited by the CIA, only to find that he has been trained for a program that creates expendable agents.
Zac has made a separate deal at Warner Bros to star in a Back To The Future-like film that joins together two projects. One’s a pitch from writers Tim Calpin and Kevin Jakubowski, and the other is a WB project called Algorithm that the studio was already developing.
Zac and his girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens will be taking part in George Lopez’s benefit concert ‘Help Haiti.’ The show will take place on Feb. 4 at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE.
