Zac Efron might star in some anime, people upset

People are upset that Zac Efron of High School Musical 1 and 3 fame (HSM 2 was terrible so it won’t be mentioned here!) is in talks to star in some anime called Full Metal Panic. I don’t care about anime, but I understand anime fans don’t like this one bit and are even madder than when Keanu Reeves was announced as Spike in a Cowboy Bebop movie.

Mandalay Pictures has acquired theatrical rights to and will develop a big-screen version of “Full Metal Panic,” a Japanese manga series that blends action, comedy and high school romance.

The property derives from writer Shoji Gatoh’s series about a teenage anti-terrorist commando named Sousuke Sagara who is given the mission to protect a high-school girl with mystical powers.
….
Zac Efron’s name has surfaced in connection with “Panic,” with the actor holding a conversation on the project. Efron, already a heartthrob among the teen audiences to whom the project could appeal, is also honing the action-adventure side of his career with a potential attachment to the Warner Bros. adventure “Jonny Quest.”

Wow, Jonny Quest is still going forward? That’s been sitting around for years!
