A few more pics from filming a week ago:
They have a few more scenes to film — mostly beach and pool scenes plus a bit on a street and a few interiors. This is planned from 27 April to 6 May on Tybee Island, GA.
Zac's movie brother has been cast:
Adam DeVine has nabbed the coveted lead opposite Zac Efron in Fox's upcoming comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.
Jake Szymanski, an Adam McKay protege who hails from Funny or Die, is directing the comedy project that Chernin Entertainment is producing for Fox.
The project is based on the true story of Mike and Dave Stangle, brothers from Albany, N.Y., who attempted to find a wedding date for a cousin's nuptials by placing an ad on Craigslist.
The movie version sees the hard-partying and immature brothers posting an ad for dates and coming across a pair of honeys who can out-party and out-immature our slovenly heroes.
Fox also moved the release date up by a few weeks to July 8, 2016.
Tracking Board posted another casting rumor for Zac:
Zac Efron is in talks to star opposite Hugh Jackman in 20th Century Fox’s THE GREATEST SHOWMAN ON EARTH. The original musical will tell the story of P.T. Barnum, a showman with a gift for hoaxing the public as he creates the three-ring circus that made him famous. The film serves as a musical rendition of the life of P.T. Barnum, who formed the Barnum & Bailey Circus. Jackman will star as Barnum.
Efron is in talks to star as Phillip, a handsome, rich young theatre producer who decides to become Barnum’s junior partner/apprentice and eventually becomes Barnum’s close friend and ringmaster. The role would require Efron to channel his Hairspray and High School Musical roots, as it requires signing and dancing
Michael Gracey will direct the musical biopic, with the screenplay’s most current draft having been written by Bill Condon, with a polish by Jonathan Tropper.
Production is slated to commence late this summer, in New York.
This is really a just rumor. Not only is the source not the most reliable (esp when it's casting of ongoing projects) but even if Zac would want to do it, scheduling is probably an issue with his other commitments.
Zac makes a brief appearance in Catfish this season. You can see him in the beginning of this video:
