Zac Efron's New Projects: Like' Bourne' and 'Back to the Future'

If you've been itching to see what Zac Efron has up his sleeve next, it looks like the actor is now circling two upcoming projects – one of which will find the young stud in a Bourne-like flick, while the other recalls one of the most popular sci-fi films of all time.

Zac Efron

First up, the Hollywood Reporter says that Efron will executive produce and star in the Universal thriller Fire, based on the graphic novel by Brian Bendis. In it, Efron will play a poli-sci college student who's recruited by the CIA for a project that will try to turn regular citizens into special agents. Efron's character is then shipped overseas where he must navigate the often dangerous waters of being a CIA agent.
 
This seems to be the next logical step for Efron, who'll have to make a jump to more serious (and dangerous) fare if he wants to remain relevant among a sea of up-and-coming actors. The other film, described by Deadline Hollywood as a "Back to the Future-like film that melds two projects" is being shaped for director Nick Stoller, who directed Forgetting Sarah Marshall and the upcoming Get Him to the Greek. No word on how it's like Back to the Future, though one imagines it will follow a high school or college student who, for one reason or another, winds up traveling through time.
