I have several theories, all equally speculative. But it's just good strategy to do as many good movies as he can, as fast as he can. The old scenario, with a new Zac Efron movie every year and a half, was no way to build a career. If he's lucky enough to be offered descent parts in acceptable movies, he should take them. And if he's lucky enough to be offered parts in movies with renowned directors and co-starring with "name" actors, he should take them and do a little dance for joy.

A director is attached, so this movie is more than a rumor. Here's the news from back in May:
The director of Die in A Gunfight recently spoke to MTV about Zac and his role in the upcoming movie:
“I just signed on to a movie Die in a Gunfight that Zac Efron’s starring in,” [director Anthony] Mandler told MTV News. “It’s a ‘Fight Club,’ ‘Romeo and Juliet’–esque, dystopian, another world [type of story] that’s really exciting.”
“It’s an absolute departure and opportunity for him to show this transition from teenage star to man,” he said. “And I think it’s the movie that we’ve all been waiting for him to do, and like ‘Romeo and Juliet’ was [Leonardo] DiCaprio or like ‘Cry Baby’ was for Johnny Depp. There’s a real opportunity for this movie to show a different side of Zac Efron. It’s an incredibly well written script… very exciting. We’re doing rewrites on [it] and probably prepping for the fall.”

Well, as we saw on The Paperboy, there can be major cast changes right up to the last minute. But I think Die in a Gunfight has been a "Zac Efron project" for a long time. As the director said, it's the kind of project Zac should be doing to change his image and build a male audience.
