New Project! with De Niro!!  
From The Wrap:
Zac Efron and Robert De Niro are attached to star in “Driving Dick Kelly,” an adult comedy formerly known as “Dirty Grandpa” that Dan Mazer will direct for Bill Block‘s QED International, TheWrap has learned.

Barry Josephson is producing the project, which was previously set up at Universal and is now being shopped to other studios.

John Phillips wrote the script, which follows a lascivious, recently widowed Army veteran (De Niro) who tricks his uptight grandson (Efron) into escorting him to Florida for spring break.

Jeff Bridges and Michael Douglas were previously rumored to be up for the fun title role that will now be played by two-time Oscar winner De Niro.

...Mazer co-wrote “Borat” and “Bruno” with Sacha Baron Cohen, and he also served as an executive producer on “The Dictator.” He most recently wrote and directed the romantic comedy “I Give It a Year,” which starred Efron's “Neighbors” co-star Rose Byrne.

He has to be excited about working with De Niro... for reals this time, lol. This script has been around awhile and I think jeezbee and I even read parts of it awhile ago thinking it might work for Zac. It was a little meh but I assume there have been rewrites since then.

Very happy to see a new project. Love him working with De Niro and I don't mind another comedy. I also like that he's playing a very different character this time - not the party boy but an uptight grandson (wouldn't be surprised if they give him glasses to make him look nerdy). The director doesn't thrill me but it could be worse I guess. What I don't like tbh is the fact that it is another road trip comedy... there have been so many already, the concept is really tired by now. I wonder if that hurts them to get a distributor and/or at the box office eventually. Keeping my fingers crossed though. With the right execution this can still be good, well, if they improve on the script Cady and I looked at, and the director does better than his last movie.

Whoever that idiot is, he/she must have too much time on his/her hands. Poor, poor unemployed bitch.

it's even more sad if they aren't an unemployed loner tbh, lol. they'd rather spend their limited free time hate tweeting on a stranger than doing something they love with their friends, s/o or kids.

Why are you even on a Zac Efron fan site?

This is the first time I'm commenting here just to say that more you waste your time here and wish him bad, the more he will rise and shine like a fucking sun to make you and your pathetic attention seeking ass blind with his success.

New Movie
This sounds funny. It's been done many times, but I think Zac and DeNiro will be a good pair. It sounds much better than We Are Your Friends.

So so happy to hear this news. I love Zac in comedies and he's co-starring with De Niro! It looks like Zac has finally learned how to navigate his career.

happy to hear this news Zac and De Niro working together again.

I had to check the calendar to make sure it wasn't April 1st.

But the "being shopped around" part makes me uneasy. Why would Universal let this project go? What if no one else wants it?

Does "worked together" mean they both appeared in New Year's Eve? They were never on screen together, might have met at the wrap party or something.

Ha. When Zac first steps in front of the same camera with De Niro, I hope he can resist passing out or wetting his pants.

Has anyone told De Niro how lucky he is to be working with Zac Efron?
