Commercial director Fredrik Bond will be helming the Zac Efron vehicle The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, which is a promising title, considering Zac Efron plays the role of Charlie Countryman. In the film, Charlie travels to Europe, only to fall in love with a girl who is “owned” by the mob. Since Zac Efron’s love knows no bounds, he withstands incessant beatings in his attempts to woo and protect her. I’m getting pretty fired up about this movie!
The film will be Bond’s first feature, despite having been attached to an English remake of The Host and an adaptation of the comic book “Hack/Slash.” Cross your fingers that he’s a heavily influenced by ultra-violent Asian films and torture porn. That Efron won’t be pretty no more. (Playlist)
