"I just signed on to a movie 'Die in a Gunfight' that Zac Efron's starring in," Mandler told MTV News. "It’s a 'Fight Club,' 'Romeo and Juliet'–esque, dystopian, another world [type of story] that's really exciting..."
"It's an absolute departure and opportunity for him to show this transition from teenage star to man," he said. "And I think it’s the movie that we've all been waiting for him to do, and like 'Romeo and Juliet' was [Leonardo] DiCaprio or like 'Cry Baby' was for Johnny Depp. There's a real opportunity for this movie to show a different side of Zac Efron. It's an incredibly well written script… very exciting."
As for his current progress on the film, Mandler said: "We're doing rewrites on [it] and probably prepping for the fall."
Hot dog, they are doing rewrites :D It was an interesting script, the style especially was appealing... but it did have problems so I am so glad to see the word rewrite in this interview.
