Zac Efron to Star in 'Art of the Steal'

Is the world ready to accept Zac Efron as a thief? Besides, you know, stealing the hearts of girls everywhere?

Hopefully so, because Variety (via Digital Spy) reports that the former High School Musical hunk is set to star in a new thriller, Art of the Steal. Efron will play a seemingly ordinary guy (which will be a stretch for him in itself) who, unbeknownst to those around him, is actually a con man who plans and executes elaborate heists. The project, based on a Wired magazine article, will be co-produced by Efron and is set for tentative release in 2013.

The 22-year-old is going to be a busy guy in coming months. He's also slated to star in the war drama The Lucky One (based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks) and the action drama Die in a Gunfight.

Do you think that Efron will eventually be able to shake his High School Musical image and develop into a bona fide movie star? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

    All his movies are crap. Starting from High School Musical saga to Charlie St. Cloud. Maybe he should try something else...Like modeling!
