Zac Efron is coming to Vancouver.
The production of a movie set in Massachusetts starring the teen heartthrob has been moved here due to the advantageous exchange rate and lower costs, according to the Marblehead Reporter.
The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud, based on a novel by Ben Sherwood, is actually set in a Marblehead, Mass. cemetery.
The movie explores the relationship between two brothers, one of whom is dead.
A Marblehead municipal politician, selectman William Woodfin told the Reporter he spent hours talking with the film’s producers, even setting up meetings with state officials, but could not get them to shoot the film in Massachusetts.
Zac Efron is the star of Disney’s High School Musical and 17 Again.
