'Art of the Steal' updates and a photoshoot?  
THR Heat Vision reported that Art of the Steal writer Max Borenstein has, "just turned in his script for Art of the Steal for Warner Bros and producers Kevin McCormick and Zac Efron."

Borenstein was announced as writer over a year ago, which is a fairly long time to just now be turning in a script. However other things may have come up especially if this wasn't rushed. Also, this may be a second draft or more, taking into account feedback. It may also not be a final draft, for what it is worth.

It is interesting that the logline got updated at some point. The original possibly was just a filler blurb, with no real indication of the direction they were going though the genre listings were thriller/drama/crime. But now it seems to be more comedic:
Comedy in the vein of CATCH ME IF YOU CAN meets RISKY BUSINESS about a nerd who ends up becoming an international bank robber, jewel thief, and credit scammer.

As I love Catch Me If You Can, I welcome this development and of course Zac has the charisma to pull that kind of role off. Anyway, no matter what the exact status it is always great to hear of progress on Zac's projects.

Also this showed up on Twitter:

So I guess they're already prepping some promo for TLO which is awesome. I have heard that Zac also did a photoshoot though I don't have many details, like whether it is something for NYE (seems kind of late) or TLO.

I could get behind seeing Zac play a nerd.

He's shown he can look like a nerd.

If Art of the Steal is going to be similar to Catch Me If You Can, I may die of happiness. Catch Me If You Can was amazing, and I could see Zac in a character similar to Frank (Leonardo DuCaprio's character for anyone who hasn't seen the movie). I was just excited for the thriller aspect of the movie, but now, I'm even more excited.

At least this means the project is going somewhere even if it takes a little while longer.

I also really hope it is true Zac did a photoshoot today for TLO. Even if it's something small.

I'm excited for Art of the Steal!

As far as TLO goes, I am both surprised and glad (sorry I'm still having Charlie St. Cloud promo disaster flashbacks) that they've started prepping promo. And I hope we hear more about the Zac photoshoot...it's been so long since we've seen one.

Oh God, I'd forgotten about Art of The Steal. So how many pending Zac projects does this make? How can people in Hollywood live like this?
