Zac Efron's sex is on Fire

01.28.2010

Having trouble getting that WANTED sequel off the ground? I've got an idea! You can just basically make the same film with a new actor and base it on another critically acclaimed graphic novel! Universal, the studio behind the hit action flick WANTED, has optioned the rights to "Fire" by Brian Michael Bendis and has set Zac Efron to star. The film would star Efron as an assuming guy who's recruited by a beautiful woman to join a society of secret agents. Sound familiar?

Now to be clear, I'm not knocking Bendis' book. For one, "Fire" was published about two years before Mark Millar's "Wanted." For another, the movie version of WANTED is verrrrry loosely based on the comic itself and if anything the movie was likely inspired by "Fire" than the other way around. But still, it's hard to take these two movies at face value and not see the similarities.

Bendis will take a stab and writing the script with Neal Moritz producing for the studio. Efron can be seen next in the Universal pic THE DEATH AND LIFE OF CHARLIE ST. CLOUD. As for WANTED 2, who knows if we'll ever see that one.

Extra Tidbit: Is that one of the stars of "Jersey Shore" or Zac Efron??

Is that Efron's sister pictured above?

I think I'll skip this one, comic movie or not.

Women with trout lips freak me out. Women who constantly have to pout grate my nerves (I struggle to watch that Australian bird in Sarah Conner Chronicles because of the constant pouting)...

...just imagine how much it disturbs me when a man is pouting. Except when it's funny in Zoolander.

I have no reason to dislike this guy (I've never watched him act), but yet I constantly fight that urge...cause you've gotta give him a chance right?

Stop pouting boy.

Agree w/ D_Rex

Call me a homo (I WILL KICK YOU M*** F** A$$), but I like Zack Efron. He seems to have a level head about him and I haven't heard anything but. He did a good job on SNL, so I'm willing to give him a shot at an action piece....(NO, NOT VANESSA)!

You guys can go ahead and give me shit all you want, but I like Efron. And I'm not afraid to admit it.

Bendis ROCKS!

I don't care if it's the same story. It's Bendis! POWERS is all about taking existing stories and putting a new spin to them and making them 100 times more engaging.

here is the problem

Guys dont take him serioulsy, he looks like a girl for one and he is about the same heights as Danny Devito oh and one small other thing... he cant act. He is best to sticking to tween fare where we know none of those women have any taste and could care less if he can act bc he is so "cute". I give you the next Matthew McConaughey.

Wanted was a good movie but to say it was loosely based is putting it lightly. Wanted just used the character names and that was about it. They should have tried to actually do the story from the comic. And is that Zac Efron, Adam Lambert, or Rosie O'Donnell's new lesbian?

Wanted 2?

Why would we want another crappy movie? Let alone a "reinvention" of said crappy movie?

This sounds like a poor attempt and Zac Efron has no talent.
