Universal has come out on top of the bidding for the rights to a new and untitled comedy which has Seth Rogen and Zac Efron attached to star. The pair look likely to make a rather unlikely pairing in the new film which Rogen will produce alongside Evan Goldberg according to Deadline.
The film will be written by Andrew Cohen and Brendan O'Brien and was successfully landed by Universal for a reported seven figure sum. The plot will see Zac Efron and his partying friends disrupting the family life of Seth Rogen and Total Film rightfully noticed the similarity of the plot to that of Old School. Not sure if Efron sounds like the right guy for the role thought to be honest. Bit strange.
The film sounds like a rather odd concept if I'm honest. I would never have put Rogen and Efron together in anything, let alone an Old School-esque comedy. I'm really struggling to see how this film will do well but of course the two very different actors could bring in two very large and diverse fan bases. Basically, it will either work well or it will bring a cringe to viewer's faces. We'll probably be waiting a long time to find out which as it hasn't even been written yet.
