Writer Jesse Wigutow, penning Disney’s Tron sequel, has reportedly closed a deal with to adapt Brian Bendis' Fire, for Zac Efron to star. Fire is based on the 1993 Caliber Comics title by Bendis later collected by Image.
Fire is about “a college student (Efron) who is recruited by the CIA only to find out he is being trained for a program that churns out expendable spies.”
According to Deadline, Efron and Bendis sold the project to Universal during the Sundance Film Festival in 2010 with Efron attached to star from a script by Bendis. But Tuesday news seems to indicate Wigutow will take over scripting duties from Bendis.
Not much to add here other than, ‘look, it’s the Godzilla trailer!’
Godzilla is scheduled for a May 16, 2014 release.
