​Zac Efron Looks Unrecognisable In First Look At New Survival Thriller Gold

​Zac Efron Looks Unrecognisable In First Look At New Survival Thriller Gold

The Greatest Showman and High School Musical star Zac Efron is unrecognisable in his latest film role, survival thriller Gold.

Co-written and directed by Anthony Hayes, the edge-of-your-seat film is currently in its third week of production, with Efron set to star as one of two strangers who stumbles upon the biggest gold nugget ever found while travelling through the desert.

The two characters team up to protect and excavate the gold, but when one of them leaves to get equipment, the other is left alone and begins to suspect he has been abandoned.

Cue harsh desert elements, wild dogs and mysterious intruders. We honestly can't wait!

Efron shared a behind-the-scenes image of the film shoot on his Instagram, where he was barely recognisable as the downtrodden and slightly grubby looking stranger.
