Zac Efron Set to Star in Apple's 'The Greatest Beer Run Ever'

Zac Efron is about to take on a new role!

Green Book director Peter Farrelly and Apple Studios are in talks to bring The Greatest Beer Run Ever to life, with Zac and Russell Crowe in talks to star, Deadline reported Tuesday (March 23).

Bill Murray is also in talks for a supporting role.

The director co-wrote the script with Brian Currie and Pete Jones, and it’s based on the bestselling book The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A Memoir of Friendship, Loyalty and War by Chick Donahue and J.T. Malloy. T

Here’s a plot summary: “Beer Run tells Donohue’s story of leaving New York in 1967 to bring beer to his childhood buddies in the Army — while they are fighting in Vietnam. Donohue took a good idea to the extreme, hitching a ride on a Merchant Marine ship, then carrying the beer through the jungle as he tried to track down his three friends. Dressed in shorts and Hawaiian shirts, he was mistaken for CIA, which made his effort a bit easier. Finally, when he completed his beer run, the Tet Offensive happened.”

Zac will play Chick Donohue, and they are planning to start production in August, “probably in New Zealand or Australia.”
