Zac Efron has been tapped to star in director Tom Gormican‘s romantic comedy Are We Officially Dating?
The screenplay, penned by Gormican, was the top-rated comedy on the 2010 Black List.
Are We Officially Dating? revolves around three friends in New York City who make a pact to remain single just as each starts to fall in love. Production is scheduled to begin in November in New York.
Treehouse Pictures’ Justin Nappi and Kevin Turen will produce with Scott Aversano and Andrew O’Connor. Michael Simkin, Jason Barrett and Manu Gargi are executive producing.
“Are We Officially Dating? is a story about timing and your 20s and just how difficult it can be,” said Nappi in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be teaming with Tom Gormican on his relatable script, which will resonate with a large audience.”
Said QED International CEO Bill Block: “We strongly believe in the global appeal of this project, and we’re excited to work with the team at Treehouse Pictures to bring it to market in Toronto. Are We Officially Dating? is an excellent addition to QED’s growing sales slate and underscores our commitment to commercial, filmmaker-driven product.”
Efron is at the Venice Film Festival with At Any Price. He will continue the festival rounds at Toronto with The Paperboy and next appears in Liberal Arts. Gormican, who recently sold Bad Form to Warner Bros. and Save the Date to Sony, is working on a pilot with Greg Daniels and Tracy Katsky.
Gormican is repped by WME and 3Arts. Efron is repped by CAA, Alchemy Entertainment and Patty Felker.
