Zac Efron is returning to Disney, but this time with a very different role!
It's been confirmed that Efron will star in Disney+’s Three Men and a Baby remake. The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news of the upcoming remake on Monday. Efron became famous through his first role with Disney starring as Troy Bolton in Disney’s High School Musical films but hasn’t returned to Disney since then.
The originalThree Men and a Baby film starred Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg, and Ted Danson as bachelors who are forced to change their lifestyles when a baby arrives on their doorstep. The 1987 comedy was a huge success and became Disney’s first live-action film to make over $100 million US domestically. A sequel titledThree Men and a Little Lady was released later in 1990.
Filming hasn't began as yet so we are probably looking at a 2022 or even 2023 release date. If Zac is involved however it's due to be a comical hit!
A SPOOKY DID YOU KNOW...WELL, NOT REALLY.
Did you know that in the original Three Men and a Baby film, what was clearly seen as a young boy hiding behind the curtains in one of the scenes caused a real panic amongst viewers at the time. As you can see in the picture below, the boy can be clearly seen and rumour at the time was that this 'boy ghost' didn't appear until the film was finally released. Spooky hey!
Actually no. After the film crew and directors had fun with this theory for a while, it was later confirmed that the boy was an advertising cardboard cutout used in the movie. Nice try...he still looks spooky though.
