Amanda Crew will star opposite Zac Efron in Charlie St. Cloud, Universal’s supernatural romantic drama that’s being directed by Burr Steers, says The Hollywood Reporter.
An adaptation of the Ben Sherwood novel, the story centers on a cemetery caretaker (Efron) who has weekly meetings with his younger brother, whose accidental death he blames on himself. He meets a young woman (Crew) believed to be missing in a sailing accident and begins a romantic relationship with her but soon wonders if she is an apparition on the way to the next life.
Steers rewrote the screenplay’s most recent draft by Lewis Colick.
