Russell Crowe, Zac Efron — and possibly Bill Murray — going on the ‘Greatest Beer Run Ever’


(LOS ANGELES) — It seems Oscar winner Russell Crowe and Zac Efron have replaced Viggo Mortensen and Dylan O’Brien, respectively, in a big screen beer run. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Crowe and Efron will now topline the based-on-real-life book The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A True Story of Friendship Stronger Than War, by Joanna Molloy and John “Chickie” Donohue.

The adventure follows Donohue’s real trip to Vietnam to share some brews with a couple of his friends who were enlisted to fight in the Vietnam War. 

The trade notes that the mercurial Bill Murray is also rumored to play a role, which would have him reuniting with his Kingpin and Osmosis Jones director Peter Farrelly. 

The film, which may end up on Apple TV Plus, will also reunite Oscar-winning Green Book director Farrelly with that movie’s Academy Award-winning screenwriter Brian Currie.
