Zac Efron for wedding date comedy
Zac Efron is set to star in a new bromantic comedy, Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates.
The Bad Neighbours star is signed up for the new role, which will see him as one half of a couple of brothers so desperate to find wedding dates that they place an ad online which then goes viral, according to Variety.
His brother for the film has not yet been cast, but Fox and Chernin Entertainment, who are making the film, are said to be hoping that it will be a similar success to Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy teaming up on The Heat.
Fox are thought to be viewing Zac as a star who can make a success of more adult comedies aimed at men after Bad Neighbours became a hit last year.
Zac can also be seen in the upcoming Lionsgate comedy Dirty Grandpa alongside Robert De Niro, and has just finished filming music-themed drama We Are Your Friends for Working Title.
