New Project - Threesome  
From TrackingBoard:
Zac Efron will star in Universal Pictures and Gary Sanchez Productions’ THREESOME. The adult comedy follows a high-powered businesswoman and her new temp who get drunk at a Christmas party, have a threesome, and both end up pregnant from the same man. Leah Rachel wrote the script, and Adam McKay and Will Ferrell are producing for Gary Sanchez.

This is pretty early in the process so who knows when it would start filming or even if it will work out at all... they don't even have a director yet as far as we know. As the source notes, Leah Rachel has sold several other scripts that haven't happened yet either, but the producers on this are decent so that's a plus. Also it is unclear how big his role is even. The old log line (2012) makes it sound smaller but it seems like it has possibly been rewritten:
After getting drunk a company holiday party, two completely opposite women have a threesome with a client, and both find themselves pregnant, forcing the women to sort out their relationships, careers and priorities.

I am also excited this seems to be a comedy with two large female roles, always nice to see... though how feminist it ends up being, who knows. I have so many dreams for the casting and director, lol. Anyway, glad to see another project on the table. Now just sitting here, waiting for Dirty Grandpa casting news, lol.

I really like that cast so far. I'm curious who the female roles will go to.

Is Dirty Grandpa still on track to shoot sometime in January?

"Also it is unclear how big his role is..."

The release says:

"Zac Efron will star..."

so I'm assuming his role will be major. In fact, I'm assuming he's the one who gets both women pregnant. I mean, who else?

That is the assumption... more since he's the first announced and it isn't even in production, has no director yet than any sort of semantic argument about language of the announcement. However based on the original log line, his part did not seem like it was the focus so my guess is it was rewritten, that's why I brought it up.

"his part did not seem like it was the focus"

Probably not, in plot terms. The story seems to be focused on the two females and their tribulations. I imagine that Zac's character will pop in and out of the story line, first as the impregnator, then as the expectant father who can't "do the right thing" for both women, etc.

Who knows if this deal even comes to pass but I'm glad to see him add a comedy to his dev slate. I would love for him to do a non-comedy after Dirty Grandpa before he returns to that genre but considering how early this appears right now, I don't think it have anything to "worry" anyway. I hope the plot leans on the comedy vs the romance side.

As you said, cast and director will be key (as usual) but I can see a lot of interesting casting options for the female roles which is nice.

Waiting with you on the casting for Dirty Grandpa. I'm getting a bit impatient, lol. I would love to see at least 1 or 2 roles getting announced soon. And I'm esp. curious about the casting of certain characters as they are not easy to cast (if you stick with the character descriptions). But I'm really glad that he has another project filming relatively soon after WAYF. Back in March it looked like it could have gone way worse.
