Zac Efron has shared the first official look of his latest project.

The Instagram post comes after photos of the actor looking buff and sporting a new bowl haircut for his role as famed wrestler Kevin Von Erich in the new film The Iron Claw went viral in October.

"First Look at my latest project Iron Claw! Can't wait to show you more…" Efron captioned the snap in which he is in the middle of a drop kick.


News24 previously reported that Efron is currently filming in Louisiana.

Based on the true story of the Von Erichs, the A24 film follows the rise and fall of the family dynasty of wrestlers who significantly impacted the sport from the 1960s to the present day.

Canadian filmmaker Sean Durkin is directing, while The Iron Claw also stars Lily James, Harris Dickinson, Holt McCallany, Jeremy Allen White and Maura Tierney.
