After flexing his dramatic muscles in Lee Daniels’ “The Paperboy” and Ramin Bahrani’s “At Any Price,” Zac Efron has signed on to star in writer-director Tom Gormican’s romantic comedy “Are We Officially Dating?”
Treehouse Pictures’ Justin Nappi and Kevin Turen are producing the indie pic with Scott Aversano and Andrew O’Connor, while Michael Simkin, Jason Barrett, and Manu Gargi will exec produce. QED International is handling international sales. Pic will start production this November in New York City.
Gormican’s script, which appeared on the 2010 Black List, follows three friends in Manhattan who make a pact to remain single just as they each start to fall in love.
