Akiva Goldsman is teaming up with the unlikeliest of people: Zac Efron, who will star in and co-produce The Falling for Warner Bros. Goldsman will presumably direct, as well as co-produce. Goldsman helped come up with the film’s story based on a pre-existing idea. The studio is keeping tight-lipped about the film’s logline. All that’s known is that it’s a supernatural thriller, and according to The Hollywood Reporter it’s, “an edgy thriller centering around an otherworldly being.” They’re currently looking to hire a screenwriter. Goldsman is already an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, though he’s only expected to shepherd the project at this early stage.
