The film, which is being directed by Eran Creevy and was written by F. Scott Frazier, centers on a backpacker (Efron) making a drug run in Germany that goes bad, forcing him to use the country’s highway system to allude dealers and other criminals. Heard will play his girlfriend.
Rory Aitken, Ben Pugh and Stuart Ford will produce.
Efron has been breaking out of his Disney roots with recent performances in “The Paperboy” and “Liberal Arts” and will next appear in the raunchy comedy “Townies” and period-drama “Parkland”. He is repped by CAA.
Having previously starred in “Zombieland” and “Pineapple Express”, Heard will next be seen in Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete Kills” and the drama-thriller “Paranoia”. She is repped by WME.
