Troy Bolton who?!?

Following last year's successful transition away from the High School Musical franchise (with 17 Again), Zac Efron takes another step forward in his adult movie career this summer.

The young heatthrob stars as the title character in Charlie St. Cloud, a drama based on a popular 2004 novel.

In the film, the 22-year-old boyfriend of Vanessa Hudgens portrays a young man who gains special powers after surviving a serious accident: he can communicate with his late brother.

Amanda Crew, Kim Basinger and Ray Liotta also star in the movie, which hits theaters on July 30.

This role may be quite the departure from High School Musical, but don't worry: Efron brings the same hotness as always to the screen.

Check it out for yourself via the following movie stills and the Charlie St. Cloud trailer...

Zac Efron Quotes

Everything's been stepped up a few notches, all the dances, and I think the songs are pretty catchy this time around. And it's our senior year, so we've got graduation and prom to look forward to. All fun things to have in a movie.

Zac Efron [on High School Musical 3]

You never know with teenage girls. It's funny. But they're always, most of the time they're pretty respectful, and I love 'em. I'm very grateful.
