WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS is a fresh, vivid coming of age drama about what it takes to find your voice. It follows a close-knit group of friends in LA, including Zac Efron’s character Cole, an aspiring young DJ who is trying to make it on the electronic music scene.
Named after Justice’s seminal electronic anthem, and featuring a cutting-edge soundtrack including music from Alesso, WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS is the must-see hit of the summer, set for UK release on August 28th.
Anna Kendrick is set to join Zac Efron and Adam DeVine in the 20th Century Fox comedy “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.”
Jake Szymanski is on board to direct, with Chernin Entertainment producing along with Jonathan Levine. Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien penned the script, the story of two brothers who place an online ad to find dates for a wedding and the ad goes viral.
Universal is moving forward with a follow-up to its hugely successful comedy from last summer that will reunite all of the major principals including stars Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne as well as director Nicholas Stoller. Neighbors, which cost just $18 million to make, earned $268 million worldwide. The studio will give the film a wide release May 13, 2016.
Penned by Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, the first Neighbors revolved around a couple (Rogen, Byrne) with a new baby who are forced to live next to a fraternity house and do whatever they can to take it down. Cohen and O’Brien are back for the sequel, which will have a female twist. This time a sorority moves in next door to the couple, who enlist their former nemeses from the fraternity to help battle the raucous sisters.
Universal is prepping the sequel for a summer shoot.
Zac Efron has been cast in new comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. The 27-year-old actor will star as one of two brothers who post an online ad to find wedding dates. Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien penned the script, with Jake Szymanski as director and Peter Chernin, David Ready and Jenno Topping as producers.
Szymanski regularly contributed to Funny or Die productions and Saturday Night Live. He also helmed episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Bad Judge, and will direct Amanda Seyfriend and Rebel Wilson in The Social Life.
Efron previously collaborated with Cohen and O’Brien on Neighbors, with Cohen as executive producer and O’Brien as writer. The actor will star with Emily Ratajkowski in We Are Your Friends, and is also scheduled for Dirty Grandpa with Aubrey Plaza and Robert De Niro.
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.”
Zac Efron and Robert De Niro are attached to star in “Driving Dick Kelly,” an adult comedy formerly known as “Dirty Grandpa” that Dan Mazer will direct for Bill Block‘s QED International, TheWrap has learned.
Barry Josephson is producing the project, which was previously set up at Universal and is now being shopped to other studios.
John Phillips wrote the script, which follows a lascivious, recently widowed Army veteran (De Niro) who tricks his uptight grandson (Efron) into escorting him to Florida for spring break.
Sorry, Spidey. A raunchy fraternity just threw a bong through your web. The No. 1 movie in the United States and Canada over the weekend was “Neighbors,” an R-rated comedy that rode strong reviews and a well-oiled marketing campaign to an astounding $51.1 million in ticket sales, trampling “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
“Neighbors” (Universal Pictures), which cost just $18 million to make and had been expected take in roughly $35 million, likely benefited from pent-up demand for crude laughs. The major studios have not released an original R-rated comedy since last August. Starring Seth Rogan, Rose Byrne and Zac Effron and recalling the 1980s-era “Revenge of the Nerds” movies, “Neighbors” also exploited what has been an overlooked corner of studio filmmaking in recent years: the fraternity picture.
“Spider-Man” (Sony) fell a steep 59 percent in its second weekend, taking in an estimated $37.2 million, for a two-week domestic total of $147.9 million — by far the lowest 14-day North American total in the webslinger’s five-film history. The superhero has also typically repeated as No. 1 in its second weekend. “Spider-Man,” which cost at least $250 million to make, not including marketing, has now taken in about $550 million worldwide, a total Sony described as “exceeding our goals.” Third place went to “The Other Woman” (20th Century Fox), which generated $9.3 million in ticket sales, for a three-week total of $61.7 million.
Also of note: “Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return” (Clarius Entertainment), a poorly reviewed animated musical that cost a reported $70 million to make, bombed badly, taking in $3.7 million

Zac Efron will produce and star in a new adaptation of John Grisham’s The Associate.
Grisham’s legal thriller was originally published on January 27, 2009. The story follows a Yale Law School grad (Efron) who is blackmailed by a group of criminals. He’s told he must take a job at the world’s largest law firm, where he’ll be spying on their work in a dispute between two powerful defense contractors worth billions.
Efron will produce via his Ninja’s Runnin Wild banner (That Awkward Moment), and Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher (the producers behind the recent YA hit Divergent) will produce through Red Wagon Entertainment. Michael Simkin and Nicki Cortese will oversee development.
Sources say the producers are currently attaching a writer before bringing the package into studios.
