Zac Efron to Star in Snabba Cash

According to our friends at The Hollywood Reporter, Zac Efron is attached to both star in and produce the remake of Snabba Cash, which was the subject of an intense bidding war amongst Hollywood studios. The Swedish hot property will be released via Warner Bros., who bought the rights. Efron is producing via hi production shingle within the Warner Bros. system, which he runs with his manager.
Snabba is based on a novel by Jens Lapidus and was a major hit in its home country this year. The thriller follows three interconnected storylines involving drugs and organized crime, with the main character a young man who hopes to strike it rich quickly by becoming a runner for a coke dealer. Efron would play the runner in this version. Looks like Z is working hard to break away from the squeaky-clean, matinee idol image he's cultivated as a star of High School Musical with this film.
Should Efron recruit lady love Vanessa Hudgens to star in the female lead in the film, if there is one?
