THR's Heat Vision blog is reporting that Zac Efron is set to star in a film adaptation of the graphic crime novel Fire by Brian Michael Bendis. Universal Studios will produce the Bendis-written screenplay.
About Fire: Imagine that you are a shy, quiet college student. Just an average guy trying to get through each day as best he can. Then your government contacts you. They want you to be part of an experiment in the art of human covert operations. Instead of creating an agent from someone within their own ranks, they want to create an agent from nobody -- from scratch -- you!
Originally published in 1993 and the first of the author's series of noir comics, the story is loosely based on events in the American intelligence community during the Reagan administration.
