Zac Efron reveals whether he’d be up for a “Greatest Showman” sequel on Friday’s “Graham Norton Show”.
Efron, who has been busy promoting his new film “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile”, played Phillip Carlyle in the smash hit flick, which also starred Hugh Jackman.
Efron shares of a possible followup, “Hugh (Jackman) is working on all sorts of things, including a one-man show. What’s next? I don’t know but I hope there is a sequel.”
Director Michael Gracey previously confirmed bosses were working on a second film, with Jackman also saying he’d be up for another movie.
The “Baywatch” star then talks about playing serial killer Ted Bundy in his latest movie.
Efron admits, “I had a lot of reservations about playing a killer and in this genre of film. I wasn’t interested in glorifying anything but I was interested in the psychological aspect of whether he was capable of real love.”
When asked about it being at odds with his usual roles, the actor replies: “I was very hesitant to do it, but I knew I could. I just didn’t want to jump at something that could be seen as a desperate shot at trying to change my image.
“It was a unique experience and not what anyone expects. It makes me proud.”
