Zac landed the #71 spot on the 2012 PopSugar 100 list this year! Zac has made the list for four years in a row now!
“Zac Efron was back in theaters in a big way. He starred in New Year’s Eve and voiced a role for The Lorax. For the latter, he made headlines for reasons other than his performance — Zac’s accidental dropping of a condom at the Lorax premiere became a much-watched viral video. In another silly clip, Zac showed a morning radio host he can undo a bra with just one hand!
Zac also traveled the world doing press for his Nicholas Sparks adaptation, The Lucky One, alongside leading lady Taylor Schilling. Zac has also just kicked off promoting a more serious role in The Paperboy, a film from Precious director Lee Daniels, and brought that film to Cannes with his costars Matthew McConaughey and Nicole Kidman.
Zac’s personal life was colorful as ever. He had a short-lived romance with Lily Collins and continued spending time with good friends like Ashley Tisdale and Rumer Willis. In December, he got a new tattoo that read “YOLO” on his hand. He started Summer with the thrill of seeing his beloved LA Kings clinch the Stanley Cup.”
Warner Home Entertainment has announced that the Nicholas Sparks romance THE LUCKY ONE, directed by Scott Hicks and starring Zac Efron, Taylor Schilling, Blythe Danner and Riley Thomas Stewart, will be available in a two-disc Blu-ray/UltraViolet Digital Copy combo pack on August 28th, 2012.
THE LUCKY ONE follows Logan (Zac Efron), a marine who has served three tours in Iraq and travels to Louisiana to search for the woman he believed was his good luck charm during the war. Since this is based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, I’m sure there is some kind of heart-wrenching and tear-jerking twist that will make everyone sap up, but hopefully give us a happy ending anyway.
Special features for THE LUCKY ONE include:
Zac Efron Becomes a Marine
Watch The Sparks Fly – The Romantic World Of The Lucky One
Zac and Taylor’s Amazing Chemistry
Millennium Entertainment has set an October 5 theatrical release date for “The Paperboy,” meaning that as the trees start shedding their leaves, American audiences will be treated to the spectacle of Nicole Kidman urinating on Zac Efron.
Directed by the Oscar-nominated Lee Daniels (“Precious”), the idiosyncratic and steamy thriller was a real love it or loath it entry at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The peeing scene attracted the lion’s share of the media attention, as did Daniels penchant for shooting Efron in various stages of undress.
The animated movie The Lorax, starring Zac Efron as Ted, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray/DVD combo pack on August 7th, 2012. Pre-order it now at Amazon.com or pick it up in stores nationwide in three weeks!
Warner Bros is in talks with Jason Bateman, Zac Efron, Goldie Hawn and Leslie Mann to headline the ensemble of This Is Where I Leave You, the Adam Shankman-directed adaptation of the Jonathan Tropper comic novel about four siblings who come home to sit shiva for their deceased father. They are trapped in the house for seven days, and all the skeletons are bared. Tropper, who memorably adapted Harvey into a script that once had Steven Spielberg committed to direct, adapted his own novel. It is a script that is drawing interest from a lot of talent, with other stars expected to step up for other roles in the ensemble.
Spring Creek’s Paula Weinstein and Jeff Levine are producing with Shankman’s Offspring Entertainment partner Jennifer Gibgot. Hawn, who last starred in 2002′s The Banger Sisters, is in talks to play the clan’s mother. Bateman, Efron (whom Shankman directed in Hairspray) and Mann will play siblings. The intention is to begin production in early September. Shankman just directed the musical Rock of Ages, with Tom Cruise starring.
Nicholas Stoller, who most recently directed The Five-Year Engagement for Universal, is in negotiations to helm the studio’s planned Seth Rogen-Zac Efron comedy Townies.
Universal picked up the project in a bidding war in July, plunking down seven figures on the pitch from writers Andrew Cohen and Brendan O’Brien.
The story sees Rogen as a regular family man who lives near an alpha-male fraternity house and has to contend with a frat member (Efron) whose raucous behavior wreaks havoc on his life.
Rogen and his Point Grey Pictures partner Evan Goldberg are producing. James Weaver, Cohen and O’Brien are exec producing.
Stoller, considered part of the Judd Apatow crew, seems to have made Universal his home in recent years. He also directed Get Him to the Greek and Forgetting Sarah Marshall for the studio. He first worked with Rogen when the latter co-starred on the short-lived Fox series Undeclared and Stoller wrote a trio of episodes.
The Lucky One is nominated for Choice Movie, Zac for Choice Movie Actor in a Drama, and The Lucky One by Nicolas Sparks for Choice Book at the upcoming 2012 Teen Choice Awards, scheduled to air on July 22nd, 2012 at 8 PM EST on FOX. Visit TeenChoiceAwards.com to vote now!
