Efron snags Crew for St. Cloud

Gorgeous newcomer Amanda Crew (she played the shoe-tossing love interest in the criminally underrated teen comedy “Sex Drive”) will join Zac Efron for “Charlie St. Cloud,” Universal’s supernatural drama, based on the book by Ben Sherwood, says THR.

The story centers on a cemetery caretaker (Efron) who has weekly meetings with his younger brother, whose accidental death he blames on himself. He meets a young woman (Crew) believed to be missing in a sailing accident and begins a romantic relationship with her but soon wonders if she is an apparition on the way to the next life.

Crew also appeared in the horror pic “The Haunting of Connecticut” – - which reminds me, must watch that; it’s here somewhere.. under all the paper, coffee cups and post-it notes.
