Zac Efron to Remake Snabba Cash

Zac Efron is really surprising me. Not that I didnt think he could, but that he would. Some people discredit him for his teen roles in High School Musical or teen comedy like 17 Again, but he isn’t a teen any more and he doesn’t want to play one.

Efron is set to produce and star in a remake of a Swedish Drug Drama Snubba Cash. Rope of Silicon shares:

Efron is set to co-produce a remake of Snabba cash (trailer to the right), a Swedish film directed by Daniel Espinosa, which itself is an adaptation of Jens Lapidus’s novel. Warner Bros. is set to distribute the thriller which follows three interconnected storylines involving drugs and organized crime, with the main character a young man (Efron) who hopes to strike it rich quickly by becoming a runner for a coke dealer. The title translates to “easy money”.

I like hearing Efron taking on these more serious roles. He has to in order to outrun his boyish good looks and teen charm of the High School Musical franchise, but he is doing a great job of it.

In Me and Orson Welles he stands out very different than his HSM character, and now this? This is dark and gritty and not something I would have expected from him, but certainly something I am looking forward to seeing him develop.

Check out the trailer to the original Swedish film this is based on Snabba Cash
