Zac Efron and the rest of the “Dirty Grandpa” cast were spotted in Atlanta earlier yesterday filming a funeral scene.
Efron, Julianne Hough, Robert De Niro and Dermot Mulroney were seen walking to and from basecamp into a church.
Aubrey Plaza was just roped in to play the leading lady in the comedy film and will play a party girl who is hoping to make the most out of her Spring Break.
“Dirty Grandpa” is directed by DanMazer and written by John Phillips and is currently set to release on Aug. 12, 2016.
The film is about Jason (Efron), an uptight fellow who is tricked to go on a roadtrip to Florida for spring break ahead of his wedding. His grandfather (De Niro) is a foul-mouthed former Army general who, thinks Jason is marrying the wrong woman and joins him on the adventure and we can only imagine what goes on from there. He loses focus of his lost wife and is looking to have sex during Spring Break.
“Vampire Academy’s” Zoey Deutch landed a role opposite of Efron as his love interest named Shadia, an earthy environmental advocate.
Efron recently posted an announcement on Instagram about the new movie with a picture collage of himself, De Niro and Deutch.
The caption read, “#ZacEfron is hitting the streets – with #RoberDeNiro as his #DirtyGrandpa! In the road trip comedy, which hits theaters in August 2016, Zac plays Jason, as an uptight groom-to-be on the way to Florida for spring break with his foul-mouthed Army-veteran grandfather in tow. ‘Vampire Academy’s’ @ZoeyDeutch has also signed on to play Jason’s love interest. Who’se excited?! – #TeamZE.”
Check out both a few new stills from Zac’s upcoming WB endeavor New Year’s Eve and three TV spots currently rotating in anticipation of the theatrical release. Don’t forget the film hits US theaters Friday, December 9th! (Thanks to EHS Wildcats)
Kim Dickens has been cast in a lead role alongside Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron in Killer Films’ Heartland, which revolves around a traditional father (Quaid) who wishes for his race-car driver son (Efron) to take over the family-run seed business in Iowa, a tale that includes racing and illegal goings-on. Dickens will play the mother, Irene. Pam Koffler and Christine Vachon are producing for Killer Films. Dickens, who is a series regular on HBO’s drama series Treme and next appears on the big screen in Paramount’s Footloose, is repped by Gersh.
Illumination Entertainment has released the first image from its 3D CG-animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ classic children’s story about corporate greed and environmental destruction, The Lorax. First published in 1971, The Lorax chronicles the plight of the environment and the Lorax, a furry, diminutive advocate for the trees (“as the trees have no tongues”) against the Once-ler, whose corporation is destroying the forests of Truffula Trees, starving the Bar-ba-Loots, choking the song from the Swomee Swans and poisoning the waters of the Humming Fish. It is told through the perspective of a young boy who goes in search of the Once-ler to try to find out why the world is so ugly. The movie will follow the opening of the book, with Zac Efron voicing a young boy named Ted (named after Dr. Seuss’ real name, Theodor “Ted” Geisel) who searches for the Once-ler (Ed Helms, The Office) after his grandmother (Betty White) tells him how colorful the world used to be. Danny DeVito will lend his voice to the Lorax.
In an interview with USA Today, DeVito said that he hopes The Lorax will help to wake people up to the environmental destruction happening all around them.
Look, I don’t want to be gruff about it, but we’ve got to wake up and smell the oil burning. I’m hoping that the squeakiest wheel gets the least grease.
I feel sometimes the only way to get things done is shake people up a little bit, and the Lorax is not a guy who pussyfoots around. He’s not a guy who uses kid gloves….the Lorax means business.
Illumination Entertainment chief Chris Meledandri said that DeVito is the perfect actor to bring the Lorax to life.
Danny has this wonderful ability to be acerbic and grouchy but at the same time absolutely lovable…. His comedic edge was very sharp, but he always maintained that warmth.
The Lorax was written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, the duo behind the script for Despicable Me and another big screen adaptation of a Dr. Seuss classic, Horton Hears a Who. Paul and Daurio will also co-direct with Chris Renaud (Despicable Me). Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is slated to open March 2, 2012.

Zac Efron, who opens Friday in Universal’s Charlie St. Cloud, is on the verge of closing on deals for what figure to be his next two star vehicles. His likely next pic is The Lucky One, a Scott Hicks-directed adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel for Warner Bros and producer Denise DiNovi. Efron will play a soldier who returns from Iraq with a picture of a girl that became his good luck charm. He seeks out the girl and they develop a relationship. Will Fetters and Doug McGrath wrote the script.
He’s also taken a shine to Die in a Gunfight, a high octane action script written by neophytes Andrew Berrer and Gabriel Ferrari, both of whom just signed with WME, fresh out of NYU. Efron will play a young New York kid who falls in love with the daughter of his father’s nemesis, setting in motion a Romeo and Juliet-like forbidden romance. The project hasn’t been shopped yet–Mark Gordon’s steering it as producer–and they will likely put on a director first for a potential spring start. I’ve got to give a shout out here to Vulture, which was faster on the draw with the Efron information than I was. CAA and manager Jason Barrett rep him.
Warner Bros. has picked up an untitled workplace comedy by Jason Filardi for Zac Efron to star in and produce. Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot are in negotiations to produce via their Offspring Entertainment banner.
Attaching himself to the Filardi workplace comedy is the latest move for Efron, who set up his production shingle at Warners in February but has quietly been putting the pieces together with his manager, Alchemy Entertainment’s Jason Barrett.
The company now has a name — Ninjas Runnin’ Wild Prods. — and has staffed up, with former Fox executive Jason Young coming aboard as head of development and to act as point person at NRW. Young spent five years at Fox, working on “X-Men: The Last Stand,” “Live Free or Die Hard” and “Max Payne,” among other movies.
Angie Edgar, a former assistant and creative executive at Alchemy, has been tapped to act as NRW’s creative executive.
Barrett will oversee NRW’s operations with Efron.
The Filardi workplace comedy, on which Barrett also will be a producer, is a reuniting of the team behind “17 Again,” Efron’s high school body-switch comedy that grossed $136 million worldwide last year. The film allowed Efron to move beyond his “High School Musical” roots while trying to build on his core audience. Read More>>
