British actress Imogen Poots got her first big break with 28 Weeks Later, and while she’s popped up in various films since, it’s only in the last few weeks she’s really become flavour of the month in Hollywood. A few days ago she entered talks to play the female lead in Need for Speed, and now Deadline reports that she’s also signed up to star opposite Zac Efron in Are We Officially Dating?
The film is about three male best friends who make a pact to remain single. The plot thickens when each of them meets their perfect partner. Zac Efron and Miles Teller are set to play two of the friends, while Deborah Ann Woll will portray the ex-wife of one of the trio. No details were given for Imogen Poots’ character, but presumably she’ll be the romantic interest for one of them.
Tom Gormican (Movie 43) is set to direct the movie from his own original script, which was featured on the 2010 Black List of the best unproduced screenplays. Shooting will start later this month.
