PanARMENIAN.Net - Jesse Wigutow, who is writing the Tron sequel for Disney, has just closed a deal with Universal Pictures to script the graphic novel Fire, a pet project of Zac Efron, who is attached to star, Deadline said.
Fire, based on the graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis and published by Icon Comics, is about a college student (Efron) who is recruited by the CIA only to find out he is being trained for a program that churns out expendable spies.
Efron and Bendis sold the project to Universal during Sundance three years ago with an eye for Efron to star from a script by Bendis. Wigutow previously worked on the Disney project Parallel and remake of The Crow and Lionsgate’s remake of The Osterman Weekend.
