Posted on

Zac Efron, who recently passed on Paramount’s remake of Footloose, is currently negotiating with New Line/Warner Bros. to star in an adaptation of the novel “The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud,” according to Variety.

Efron will play a cemetery caretaker who communes with his dead brother, whose death he feels he caused. Based on the novel by Ben Sherwood, a former producer at Good Morning America, and helmed by Efron’s 17 Again director Burr Steers, the film is scheduled for a July start date.
