Zac Efron will play a university student turned police informant

Zac Efron is set to show his rebellious side, as he signs on to star in thriller Narc.

The former High School Musical star is in talks to play a university student who turns police informant after he is busted for cocaine, reported Deadline.

Based on a true life story and described as a "college Donnie Brasco", he continues to balance his life as a fraternity president and lacrosse team captain, while leading a double life by helping the cops take down criminals.

Zac's manager and producing partner Jason Barrett will be an executive producer on the film with Doug Banker.

The 25-year-old actor - who recently starred in The Paperboy alongside Nicole Kidman and Matthew McConaughey - will next be seen in JFK drama Parkland and romantic comedy Are We Officially Dating? with Imogen Poots.

It's the latest role to shake up Zac's good-guy image, following his part in The Paperboy and the forthcoming Autobahn, in which he plays an American backpacker who gets involved with a ring of drug smugglers as a pick-up driver.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
