Once mooted for Shia Labeouf, John Grisham's The Associate is now set to star Zac Efron instead...
It's been some time since the last John Grisham movie adaptation made it to the screen, with 2004's Christmas With The Kranks - based on the book Skipping Christmas - the most recent one.
That said, several of his books seem suddenly destined for the big screen again. A movie take on The Testament is apparently in the hands of director Stuart Blumberg (Thanks For Sharing), although we can't find anything concrete on that at the moment. Furthermore, The Racketeer had been linked with Safe House director Daniel Espinosa, and rumours persist of a film of The Partner.
And now you can add to list The Associate. The film version of that has attracted Zac Efron, who is set to produce and star in the movie.
