New poster for The Paperboy

Zac Efron gets his smoulder on

A new poster has been released for The Paperboy, Lee Daniels’ thriller in which Zac Efron finds himself falling for a distinctly cougarish Nicole Kidman.

Efron plays the brother of Matthew McConaughey’s investigative journalist, with both men working in tandem to prove the innocence of John Cusack’s death row inhabitant.

Things are complicated however by the presence of Kidman’s character (a long-standing correspondent of the accused) and it isn’t long before she and Efron find themselves embarking upon an ill-advised affair.

The poster doesn’t give us much more to go upon beyond that, suffice to say that Efron has clearly been putting a lot of hours in at the gym to get those biceps sufficiently pumped.

Adapted from the novel by Pete Dexter, The Paperboy has yet to receive an official release date, but is expected to arrive at some point in 2012. Check out the poster in full, below...

      Kidman really looks like her character from To Die For here. We can only hope it's as good.

      It's not a remake of The Paperboy unless they've changed the entire plot.

      This looks nothing like the computer game!
