What if a recent graduate of a prestigious law school was forced to take a job at a BigLaw firm because of blackmail by criminals?

That, essentially, is the premise of The Associate, a John Grisham novel published in 2009. Now the book is en route to becoming a motion picture, with Zac Efron in the starring role, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

A post by The Tracking Board provides additional details.
