Variety says that Zac Efron, who can be seen in Charlie St. Cloud this Friday, is in negotiations to topline Warner Bros.’ The Lucky One.
Scott Hicks is attached to direct the film based on the Nicholas Sparks best-seller, which centers on a Marine who survives three tours in Iraq. He attributes his good fortune to a photograph he carried of a woman he has never met, and he sets out to meet his good-luck charm when he returns to North Carolina.
Denise Di Novi and Kevin McCormick will produce. Alison Greenspan is executive producing.
