Zac Efron is busy filling his development slate with new movies at the moment, and it seems he wants to try something a little darker than usual, as he’s signed up for the Fox crime drama Narc, according to THR.
The movie based on a true story and follows a promising college student who gets in massive trouble when he is caught with a bunch of cocaine that he was going to sell at a party. However, he makes a deal with the cops by agreeing to be an undercover informant.
Newcomer Garrett Meyer will writing the script, which is described as a “a college-set Donnie Brasco”. It doesn’t appear a director is set as yet.
