Efron Asks Are We Officially Dating

For a new rom-com

ARE we officially dating? We don’t know, Zac. You tell us! We waited for hours in the rain and then you texted us to say that you were sorry you couldn’t make it and how does that make us feel… Sorry… That’s something else. Are We Officially Dating? is the title of a new romantic comedy that Efron has signed on to star in.

Dating, written by Tom Gormican – who will also direct the finished product – appeared on the 2012 Black List and follows three friends who make a pact to stay single. Trouble is, they all swear solidarity just as they each begin to fall in love… Whether that’s with each other (which would make things that much more complicated) or outsiders hasn’t been specified yet, but if When Harry Met Sally... taught us anything, it’s that this situation rarely ends well.

Gormican is looking to start the cameras cranking this autumn in New York. He’s also been working on a pilot with US Office overseer Greg Daniels and has sold a couple of other scripts to studios.

Efron, last seen in The Lucky One (and heard in The Lorax), will next crop up in The Paperboy.
