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)

Zac Efron, best known for crowd pleasing fare like the surprisingly good 17 Again and Hairspray is branching out into grittier territory with the action comedy The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman.”>Zac Efron, best known for crowd pleasing fare like the surprisingly good 17 Again and Hairspray is branching out into grittier territory with the action comedy The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman. The film concerns a man who loses his mother, goes to Europe to find himself, falls for a girl, finds out the girl “belongs” to the head of a violent crime family, and must fight for not only her honor, but also their lives. Wow. That’s a far cry from High School Musical, ain’t it?

The film, scripted by Matt Drake, writer of the upcoming Todd Phillips/Joel Silver produced comedy Project X, is set up at Mandate Pictures.  With this project, and the start of his own production company (Ninjas Runnin’ Wild), Efron seems to be entering a new phase of his career. A phase where his billions of screaming tween fans won’t be old enough to be admitted to see his movies in the theaters without a guardian, but will find a way regardless. Love always finds a way.

Shia LaBeouf Will Be Badly Beaten in ‘The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/shia-labeouf-will-be-badly-beaten-in-the-necessary-death-of-charlie-countryman/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/shia-labeouf-will-be-badly-beaten-in-the-necessary-death-of-charlie-countryman/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Shia LaBeouf has signed on to star in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman in commercial director Dante Ariola's feature debut. Quick question about Dante Ariola, is that his real name or the one he uses when performing burlesque? I guess that doesn't matter right now.In the film, LaBeouf stars as Charlie Countryman. Just a normal dude who likes to hang and chill and maybe kick around the hack. Then he meets Gabi, but sadly she's already claimed by a violent crime boss. Charlie must take several sh*t-kickings to woo her. This sounds like Dante's Peak to Scott Pilgrim's Volcano. Those two movies somehow found a way to make lava boring, let's hope Countryman doesn't do the same for sh*t-kickings. (/Film)
