Info on Bahrani and 'The Paperboy'  
Ok so here is as much as I know on The Paperboy and the Bahrani pic schedule.

Over the past few weeks the filming date for The Paperboy has been pushed back a few times (casting issues as we know) resulting in confusing information across the interwebs.

Per Production Weekly, start dates changed as follows...

June 23 issue: June 30 issue: July 7 issue (as of 7/1):
The Paperboy - July 4
Untitled Bahrani - Mid-July
The Paperboy - July 25 The Paperboy - August 1

Now on June 26th, the Chicago Film Office posted August 1 as the approximate start date for the Bahrani pic. Starting on the same days sounds not so good but all hope is not yet lost.

In the last post on the schedule conflict, I mentioned in passing that Zac was not listed in the description for the film on the production company's facebook. At the time, that was maybe the most worrisome evidence since he should've been listed as it was a recent description.

That changed this morning. The description was amended and includes both Dennis and Zac.

Hopefully this bodes well, even if it isn't clear yet how they'll make the timing work. And, of course, as a disclaimer... this is just a sequence of the latest information that is out there. Nothing is set in stone until they start filming.

Both films are still actively casting. Two people have been added on the imdb page for the Bahrani pic. If it is accurate info, these are the new castmates:

Maika Buckley - Cadence Farrow

Cadence is Dean's girlfriend. Maika is also a competitive kitesurfer. Maybe they can hit Lake Michigan for some kitesurfing lessons on their days off.

Red West - Cliff Whipple

Cliff is Dean's grandfather. Red has worked with Bahrani before on Goodbye Solo

And from Nicholas Sparks' WhoSay account via his fb:

Caption excerpt: "The film is scheduled to hit theaters in January 2012! Here's an exclusive photo of Zac Efron with Nicholas' assistant Stephanie near the New Orleans set of the film last fall."

I wish I had a happy dance gif right now!

Yeah, it's not a sure thing, esp considering that the schedule still looks a bit fragile and this isn't any official confirmation either but it looks worlds better than it was a few days ago. Let's hope no further complications arise and everything goes down smoothly from now on.

Obviously I have no idea how Maika is as an actress but looks-wise she's a great fit for the character. And the kiteboarding thing looks totally up Zac's alley, so I would be surprised if that's not something they can bond over.

Well this makes me feel better that he's still attached to both, especially the news about the Bahrani film. I really like this news.

If Nicole Kidman has another project to film on August 1st too then wouldn't they have to adjust filming around her schedule too? The other actors in the Bahrani film sound good, and I'm amazed on how much you know about the characters already.

And when do you think we'll get a definite realease date for the The Lucky One? I mean haven't they been saying The Lucky One would be released January 2012?

I apologize if this is too many questions. Just curious.

Yeah I'm not sure about Nicole's other film Stoker. As far as I know it is still casting for extras, etc. and is supposed to start August 8. So something still has to change.

As to The Lucky One, I have no idea unfortunately. They've been saying January or early 2012 for awhile but always saying that is tentative... we'll just have to wait and see what they decide.

Hm I think the Ramin project will happen before The Paperboy.

They are already casting (and I'm particularly interested on knowing who will play Zac's/Dean's brothers) and The Paperboy still has to find someone to replace Tobey & Sofia (hopefully Nicole) so yeah...

And I think Ramin's film will have less weeks of shooting than Paperboy so I think he will have time to do both.

This is new, but unless this person is lying then Zac is in dekalb, Illinois filming the Bahrani movie.

Yay! :D

So, Zac has at least five movies coming out next year, right?

The Lucky One
The Lorax
Liberal Arts
Bahrani film
The Paperboy

If he films Die in a Gunfight by the end of this year, he's got six!

My Zac DVD/Bluray/OST collection will get a lot larger nex year. So excited! :D

BTW, do we know how many days did he film Liberal Arts? Two, or three days?

Simon Pegg filmed Mission Impossible 3 for two days, but his role in it was short but memorable enough. Hope Zac's part in Liberal Arts is good, too.
