According to Deadline, the 32-year-old is starring in the upcoming flick King Of The Jungle. The movie is based on the true story of John McAfee, the creator of an Antivirus software, who cashed in his fortune, left civilization and moved to the jungle in Belize. Zac is set to star as Ari Furman, a journalist who goes to visit John in an attempt to interview him. Things get complicated once he arrives in Belize and finds himself in the midst of a murder mystery.
Wow, how intense does that sound?! Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (who were also behind the movies Crazy, Stupid, Love and I Love You Phillip Morris) will be directing the upcoming film. There’s no release date for it just yet, but production is reportedly set to begin in early 2020.
As fans know, Zac starred in the Netflix crime thriller Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile earlier this year, where he portrayed Ted Bundy. He also appeared in the movie The Beach Bum alongside Matthew McConaughey, Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Jonah Hill and more. He lent his voice to the Facebook web series Human Discoveries, and is also gearing up to play Fred Jones in the upcoming Scooby-Doo animated flick. Before that, he starred in a ton of movies and TV shows, including The Greatest Showman, Baywatch, Neighbors 1, 2 and 3, Summerland, New Years Eve, The Lorax, That Awkward Moment, The Lucky One, 17 Again, Hairspray, all three High School Musical movies, of course, and more.
