I just want him to do something completely different. Gee...script problems with this one? Why am I not surprised...

Now, if you make it a horror, then you have my attention. Wink

You know what I would love to see? I would love to see Zac do some voice over work for The Simpsons, American Dad, or Family Guy...now that would make my life. Wink

CStC had a primary supernatural element.

He said he wants to do movies in all genres. So he still has to do a western, a sci-fi thriller, and a horror. The horror genre does not have to be tacky. It all depends on the script and the sincerity of the direcctor and producers. A good horror flick could be a box office success and expand his audience greatly.

Right now, horror movies haven't done anyone's careers any good, so until the right one comes along, then I'd say no.

Haahaaa ... 'Cowboys and Aliens'!

With Zac's face and a good script he could be seriously, scarily, bad ass in a horror flick!

RE: The Ever After Part
I'm not a fan of the "Hills Have Eyes" kind of horrors...but he should do a character-driven story. One that's maybe not so much focused on gore, but one that *actually* delves into story (think "The Shining" or the "Exorcists"). But I agree- he'd have to find the right script. What's amazing about those two movies is that they showed very little blood and gore, but they were inherently scary because the story was SO good and so was the script. Unfortunately, most directors/producers nowadays are trying to "out-gore" each other. Ugh.

CSC was *not* a supernatural thriller...it was a romantic drama with supernatural overtones but it was not a thriller. Far from it. It oozed sap from every terribly written line of dialogue (I tried reading the script and I couldn't even get past the first page it was so bad...).

He has his whole future ahead of him which is so exciting. I can't wait to see him really stretch as an actor...he's incredibly talented but he just needs to find the right vehicle for that talent.

Bring it, Zac....

I didn't say that CStC was a supermatural thriller, only that the plot driving device was the supernatural element. Remember that all his romance was with an apparition, not a real person. One of the faults of CStC was that they didn't exploit the supernatural element enough to distinguish this movie from other conventional rom drams.

RE: The Ever After Part
You know what was odd about the draft of the CSC script that I had? It *actually* had a narrator....it was the paramedic, Florio (Ray Liotta). I don't know which draft it was but, wow. Really glad they didn't go that route, otherwise the movie would have been way worse. Have to wonder how many rewrites this script went through before they got to the production draft....

It's subgenre was definitely supernatural, and I agree- they didn't play that up enough. It does make me long for him to do some type of thriller...he's definitely got the chops to pull of a serious role in that genre. Here's to hoping.... Smile
