Efron-Led “Gold” Sells To ScreenMedia
Screen Media has acquired the North American rights to Anthony Hayes’ survival thriller “Gold” starring Zac Efron and Hayes (“Animal Kingdom”).
The pair play two men who stumble across the biggest gold nugget ever found while traveling through a remote desert.
They hatch a plan to protect and excavate the gold, a scheme that requires one man to leave to secure equipment while the other stays behind to protect the discovery at all costs.
Several studios and distributors circled the project which also stars Susie Porter. Shot in South Australia late last year, Hayes and Polly Smyth co-wrote the film which is being produced by John and Michael Schwarz.
