Zac Efron and Akiva Goldsman are teaming up for a mystery supernatural project at Warner Bros. titled The Falling.
Efron will star in the film and produce via his Warners-based Ninjas Runnin’ Wild Productions and Goldsman's Weed Road banner. Also on board to produce are husband-and-wife team Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold of Safehouse Pictures...
Every effort is being made to protect the logline of the project, which is being described as an edgy thriller centering around an otherworldly being.
The idea originated within the studio, which then presented it Goldsman and Efron. Goldsman and Harold, the screenwriter who worked on Warners' upcoming Tom Cruise sci-fi movie All You Need Is Kill, then hammered out a story.
The producers will now undertake a search for a screenwriter to take Falling, which is a working title, to the next level of development.
Very promising! I'm glad they had the idea and then went to Zac, shows they still like him and his production company, lol. This is definitely important as WB is undergoing some management shifts and no one is sure where Jeff Robinov, Zac's main relationship there, will end up.
