Zac Efron To Star In Romantic Comedy Are We Officially Dating?
Zac Efron is reported to have just signed up to star in romantic comedy Are We Officially Dating?
24 year-old Efron rose to fame staring as the lead character Troy Bolton in Disney’s popular High School Musical films. He went on to star in several other teen flicks before showcasing his broader acting abilities in more mature roles in films such as The Paperboy and At Any Price. Returning to a more light-hearted film role will be refreshing for Efron, whose most recent work was of a more serious nature.
Tom Gormican, who has already written the script for the film, will also be directing the romantic comedy, which is expected to tell the story of three friends in their twenties living in Manhattan who agree to remain single, only for each of them to unexpectedly fall in love.
It is thought that the story will be told from a males perspective, unlike most romantic comedies, and focus on the lengths men can go to, to avoid being in an adult relationship.
The film script made it onto the prestigious 2012 Black List, a list that acknowledges the best un-produced screenplays, therefore there is high hopes for the movie.
TreeHouse Productions will be producing Are We Officially Dating, with filming scheduled to commence in New York this November. It is currently unknown who else will be cast to star alongside Efron in the film, but full details of cast members are likely to be revealed in the coming weeks.
