Zac Efron Joins 'The Associate' as Law School Grad!

Zac Efron is attached to star and produce the upcoming film The Associate!

According to The Wrap, the 26-year-old actor is replacing Shia LaBeouf, who was originally attached to star when the project was under Paramount. But according to our sources, Zac didn’t replace Shia as he was never confirmed for the role.

Zac will take on the role of “a Yale Law School grad who is blackmailed by a group of criminals. He’s forced to work at the world’s largest law firm, where he’s tasked with spying on their work in a dispute between two powerful defense contractors.”

Shia may be crazy in real life but on screen he is miles ahead of Zac Efron.

He’s playing a lawyer? YES!!!!

# 5

# 6

This is his second time producing a movie right?

# 7

# 8

From the frying pan into the fire

Awesome Zac, can’t wait.

This is a book right? I might have to read it.

Oooooo, a lawyer. Nice.

Shia dropped out of this two years ago, this is just media piling on Shia and so people can dump on him some more

I can’t wait to see Zac in a drama.

Great great actor ! #happy

Nice… What is the other project that he is doing?

This sounds like it could turn out to be a really good movie. Good role for Zac, I will definitely be seeing this

Big mistake. Shia is weird but, is talented. Zac is a drug addict loser.

Yea!! Zac, congrats. Staring and producing.

dont try to start anything, Jared. the lead actor Zac replaced is Andrew Garfield.
Shia was attached to this project way back in 2008 and dropped it because the fund problem.

Awesome Zac!! Sounds good.

Now let’s see which studio will pick it up.

Sexy lawyer.slash spy. Intriguing…

i think he’d be a plausible yale law school grad. he’s about the right age, and looks the part.

First a doctor , now a lawyer. Aww we’ve been on a Zac treat lately!

However Jared the actor he replaced is NOT Shia but Andrew Garfield/ Andrew was the one who replaced Shia.
