Zac Efron to star in new workplace comedy
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Zac Effron has his own production studio called “Ninjas Runnin’ Wild Productions”. You know what that sounds like? It sounds like it was named by a 16 year-old kid with too much money. Anyway, Zac Effron and NRW have just jumped on a workplace comedy from scribe Jason Filardi that Effron will also star in. Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot are looking at producing. Not much is known about the project, but it jumps in line with other films NRW are looking at producing including a heist film (ART OF THE STEAL), a time-traveling story (EINSTEIN THEORY), a CIA thriller (FIRE) and a remake of the Swedish film SNABBA CASH.
I don’t know which, if any, of those films Effron will actually be starring in, but that’s a pretty good lineup of films for any actor over the next few years. I like the variety and I like that Effron is trying to break out of his HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL days. What I don’t like is the involvement of Adam Shankman in anything. That guy is one of the most annoying and obnoxious human beings on the planet.
