Zac Efron is putting his "High School Musical" days firmly behind him - he's signed on to star as a con man in new heist movie "Art of the Steal".

Efron has expressed his determination to establish himself as a serious actor, after finding fame as Disney star Troy Bolton in the "High School Musical" movies. And he's set to give cinemagoers a double thrill when he goes into action, playing a criminal who executes a series of elaborate heists while leading another life as an upstanding citizen.

The 22 year old will produce the drama with his Ninjas Runnin' Wild production company, reports Variety. The story, based on a Wired magazine article by Joshuah Bearman, will be adapted for the big screen by Max Borenstein.
