New Line Cinema has bought Jason Filardi’s untitled comedy pitch with High School Musical star Zac Efron to topline, reports Variety.
The studio has also signed Hairspray director Adam Shankman and producing partner Jennifer Gibgot to produce through their Offspring Entertainment. Efron’s manager Jason Barrett will executive produce.
No director is attached on the project. The logline’s being kept under wraps other than being described as a broad comedy in a high school setting.
Efron is in pre-production on a High School Musical sequel.
