Zac Efron Set to Lead John McAfee Movie KING OF THE JUNGLE

Zac Efron Set to Lead John McAfee Movie KING OF THE JUNGLE
Zac Efron ("The Greatest Showman", "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile") is set to replace Seth Rogen as the lead in the indie comedy "King of the Jungle". The film is directed by "Crazy, Stupid, Love." filmmakers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa from a script by Emmy-winning duo Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski ("Dolemite is My Name").

Based on an article by Joshua Davis published in Wired magazine, the film chronicles the wild true story of rogue tech magnate John McAfee, creator of the McAfee Antivirus software, who cashed-in his fortune, left civilization and moved to the jungle in Belize, where he set up a Colonel Kurtz-like compound of guns, sex and madness.

Efron stars as Wired journalist Ari Furman, who arrives in Belize to interview McAfee, but a run-of-the-mill assignment turns into a nightmare as Furman finds himself pulled into McAfee’s escalating paranoia, slippery reality and murder. Michael Keaton was attached to star as McAfee, but he has also departed the project, and casting is currently underway for the role. Filming is set to begin early 2020.

Zac Efron can also be heard in the upcoming CG-animated Scooby-Doo movie "Scoob", in which he voices the character Fred Jones.
