Zac Efron to play journalist in King Of The Jungle
Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the film is based on a screenplay by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski
Actor Zac Efron will be seen in the role of investigator in the comedy King Of The Jungle.
Filmmakers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are on board to direct the film, from a screenplay by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, according to reports.
The project is based on an article by Joshua Davis, which was published in Wired magazine. The article is about the true story of rogue tech magnate John McAfee, creator of the McAfee Antivirus software.
McFee cashed-in his fortune, left civilization and moved to the jungle in Belize. He set up a compound of guns, sex, and madness there.
In the film, journalist Ari Furman (Efron) accepts what he thinks is a run-of-the-mill assignment to interview McAfee, but once he arrives in Belize, he finds himself pulled into McAfee's escalating paranoia, slippery reality, and murder.
