Zac Efron’s ‘Snabba Cash’ remake Gets a Writer

As reported by the LA Times, Zac’s future movie project has obtained a writer. Noah Oppenheim has been slated to write the script for the Warner Bros remake of Snabba Cash.

EXCLUSIVE: Two of the hotter Hollywood stories of 2010, at least on the creative side, are coming together.

“Snabba Cash,” the Zac Efron-starring remake of the Swedish crime drama that we told you about last March, is getting a writer with some significant buzz of his own. The scribe in question: Noah Oppenheim, who’s coming on to write the script for the Warner Bros. film project.

Oppenheim is the former producer of “Today” who received Steven Spielberg’s seal of approval when the A-lister expressed interest in producing Oppenheim’s original story about Jackie Kennedy and her life in the days after the JFK assassination.

Rachel Weisz is now attached to star and Darren Aronofsky to direct that first lady tale, “Jackie,” which should give Oppenheim plenty of heat on his own.

The addition of a writer to the English-language “Snabba Cash” is good news for fans of Daniel Espinosa’s original, as well as devotees of arty Swedish genre tales (and thanks to “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” there are plenty). But mostly it’s good news for anyone who wants to see Efron play a coke runner, because it means we’re now one step closer to that once-impossible dream.
