Has there been any other movement or news on Threesome since the announcement?

I wonder how the timing is going to work out. Will he film this and then Threesome, or Threesome then this? Or will filming overlap and he has to drop out of one?

Threesome was never an official announcement but a rumor from an industry site. They had been better with their rumors in the development area recently, so we posted it but it was never anything official or happening soon. And no, there hasn't been any development since. And they didn't have a director or any of the female leads, so it was never going to happen soon. Although as I said above... I personally hope Zac won't do it at all. Threesome has never been in the equation of what to film next.
