Zac in talks to Join “Blood Moon”

Kate Hudson, Craig Robinson & Zac Efron Line Up For Ana Lily Amirpour’s ‘Blood Moon’ — AFM

EXCLUSIVE: Kate Hudson (Almost Famous) and Craig Robinson (The Office) are set to star in writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour’s (A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night) third feature Blood Moon, which is being produced by Oscar-winner John Lesher (Birdman) via his Le Grisbi banner.

Zac Efron is in talks to join the intriguing fantasy feature, which will chart the story of a girl with strange and dangerous abilities who escapes from a mental asylum in New Orleans. CAA Media Finance and Rocket Science will be selling to buyers at the AFM.

Set in hedonistic streets of New Orleans, the film is inspired by fantasy-adventure movies of the ’80s and ’90s. It is understood to pair strange, violent, and humorous sequences with a range of music from heavy metal to Italian techno. Production is set to begin in spring 2019.

Lesher said, “Lily’s unique vision and poetic style sets her apart from the pack. She is truly one of the most exciting filmmakers working today.”

Amirpour blasted onto the scene in 2014 with her vampire debut A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. She followed that up with desert-set fever dream The Bad Batch, which won the Special Jury Price at the 2016 Venice Film Festival. She recently directed the UCP pilot Briarpatch for executive producer Sam Esmail (Mr. Robot), plus episodes of Noah Hawley’s Legion, Bad Robot’s Castle Rock, and Jordan’s Peele’s upcoming reimagining of The Twilight Zone for CBS All Access.

She is represented by CAA and Alan Wertheimer; Hudson by CAA and Untitled Entertainment; Efron by CAA and Alchemy Entertainment; and Robinson by UTA and 3 Arts Entertainment.

Zac to Star in “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile”

Zac Efron To Star In ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile’

DEADLINE – Zac Efron will star in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, director Joe Berlinger’s psychological thriller about serial killer Ted Bundy that is set up for Cannes by Voltage Pictures and Michael Costigan’s COTA Films. Michael Werwie (Lost GirlsMassive) wrote the script, which got him a Nicholl Fellowship prize and made the 2012 Black List.

This comes as Efron stars this summer with Dwayne Johnson in Paramount’s Baywatch and at Christmas opposite Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams in Fox pic The Greatest Showman. Berlinger is best known for co-directing with the late Bruce Sinofsky the Paradise Lost documentaries that eventually freed the West Memphis 3 from a wrongful murder conviction, and Metallica: Some Kind of Monster. Berlinger and Efron will start production October 9. Voltage will fully finance and handle international sales. CAA and UTA Independent Film Group represent the domestic rights.

Nicolas Chartier and Ara Keshishian will be producing for Voltage alongside Costigan for COTA Films, and Efron’s Ninjas Runnin’ Wild banner will produce alongside Michael Simkin and Jason Barrett. Werwie and Jonathan Deckter will be executive producing.

“I have been trying to work with Zac Efron for a long time,” said Chartier. “From his dramatic turn in Paperboy to his hilarious performance in Neighbors, he continues to impress audiences and critics alike with his extraordinary versatility and range.”

Costigan hailed the script and Berlinger’s past documentaries in predicting the mix will be strong. “Zac is perfect casting, as he can play both the depth and the charm that this guy had in equal measures, and which allowed him to manipulate these women in such a terrifying way. We think in the vein of Nightcrawler or even The Jinx, we are making a psychological thriller that will resonate deeply with audiences.”

Voltage Pictures’ Ara Keshishian negotiated the deal with CAA, UTA and Chris Tricarico on behalf of COTA. Efron is repped by CAA, Alchemy Entertainment, and attorneys Patti Felker and Eric Suddleson; Berlinger is repped by CAA and Lighthouse Management. Werwie is repped by UTA and managers Brad Kaplan and Stephen Gates.
