More re: Kent State project and a Call to Arms  
Okay still nothing concrete on Zac Efron's involvement but more details have come out about this project. Someone posted some info on fanforum about it which led me to find out the proposed director has made some excellent documentaries, in fact, two have won Oscar for Best Documentary. I also saw that the NY Times website put up this:

Other details from FF: production is to begin in March (which seems like a conflict with Twatlight for Rob, no?) and the budget estimate, as of now, is $10mil, so basically an indie. Strange coincidence (or not?) the director did a documentary, High School Musical: The Music in You. I have no idea what that is about but I'm guessing HSM?

(ETA: I'm guessing the cast list is where Star got its 'source' and then conflated other details to make a story...)

Oh god, it is ridiculous how nervous I am for Zac to get a good project.

All these idiotic twatlighters are making me get an ulcer I fear. No, not really. I get that they like Rob but they keep driving me nuts by saying Zac can't act. WTF? ARE THEY TAKING CRAZY PILLS?

I mean, I've said it before, he may not be Paul Newman or Gary Oldman (yet), but the boy can act.

And to explain myself, I am not a wee or twee tweener. I am a young adult female who does actually have standards further than how hot someone is (although hotness doesn't hurt... see accompanying picture). I've seen and enjoyed movies from French New Wave to anime, from High School Musical to Metropolis. So I get what entertainment is, but I also get what acting is and I get what film making is. And Zac deserves a chance.

Seriously, we need like a call to arms. Zefronites everywhere please attack these blogs with positive Zac comments:

Let's remind the world that even if we've settled into our respective communities, like zefron and ff and ontd, that we <3 Zac Efron. Spread the word.

Here's to hoping Zac lines up some awesome projects in the near future.

Heh, it was my friend who posted this info on FF. She works in the industry and said that Studio System is way better then IMDb pro and that she used it all the time when she worked for a production office in LA.

I hope he gets it, I could see him doing well. And he can act, yes he needs some work and seems to lend himself better to comedy but he works hard, I have no doubt he could do it.

Does she know if this is the only currently in-development project (aside from Footloose) for Zac on Studio System?

idk but I can ask. :) I should ask her what it says about HS2 though. hm. I'll get on that.

For real, your posting about this makes me nervous on his behalf. This would be a GREAT project for him, wow.

Yes, that schedule would definitely conflict with Rob's New Moon schedule, which, btw, I think Lucas is angling for a part on. Twi School Musical, anyone?

please don't remind me of all the cross-over fic. most hsm fic is garbage any way but that stuff is like worse than anthrax. blech.

oh and can i just mention how much i really wanted mrs. evans to say ducky at the end of the finale version of 'i want it all'

it almost ruined the end for me that she didn't.

ikr but the really really gay Juilliard scout swooning over him kind of made up for it!

i have a tag on my lj called "wrong and bad crossovers" so you know i'm feeling you on the dreaded possibility of endless fic about how the volturis had singing and dancing alter egos in albuquerque once...

... but i think it's a real possibility at this point.
