Zac Efron could do with a decent hit, and he seems to be hoping the realm of the rom-com is where he’ll find it, as he’s joined the cast of Are We Officially Dating?, a new film that will be looking for buyers at the Toronto International Film Festival next week, according to Variety. (Ed: I’m presuming the movie is based on me and Zac, as he’s always asking me ‘Are We Officially Dating?’, or is that just in my mind?)
The film is about three Manhattan friends who make a pact to remain single. The plot thickens when each friend falls in love shortly after the vow is made (wouldn’t you just know it!). Zac Efron is the first to sign up for the film, with more casting news to likely follow out of Toronto next week.
Tom Gormican will direct from his own screenplay, which was featured on the 2010 Black List. The movie is set to start shooing this November in New York City.
