Sorry, ladies! Zac Efron is NOT back out on the market if you think that he’s looking for a wedding date because he broke up with his girlfriend, Sami Miro. They’re going pretty strong as a matter of fact. So why is Zac Efron looking for a wedding date?
That’s because Efron is set to star in Fox’s upcoming comedy, “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.” The news was confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter (THR). Efron’s new movie is about two brothers who are looking for wedding dates. They post their profiles on online dating ads, and things get crazy when Efron’s ad goes viral.
Jake Szymanski will be directing the film, which is slated for a July 29, 2016 release. Chernin Entertainment will be producing the film under Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and David Ready. Brendan O’Brien and Andrew Cohen will be working on the script.
Who will be Efron’s lucky date? The rest of the movie’s cast has not yet been announced. As for Efron’s brother, they’re still looking to fill the role. According to Variety, the producers are hoping that this film “will have results similar to Sandra Bullock-Melissa McCarthy team-up on ‘The Heat.’”
The 27-year-old actor is also starring in the Lionsgate’s “Dirty Grandpa” starring Robert De Niro.
Efron is one of the actors being chosen by fans to star in Fox’s adaptation of the 1971 musical, “Grease.” If he gets chosen to play the role of Danny Zuko in the live musical, then fans of “High School Musical” will get the chance to see Efron and Vanessa Hudgens reunite in another musical. Vanessa Hudgens has officially been cast as bad girl Rizzo.
As for Efron’s real-life romance, things are still strong with stylist and model, Sami Miro. The two were recently spotted together while filming “Dirty Grandpa” in Atlanta.
