His days as a basketball playing theater kid in High School Musical are behind him. Now Zac Efron is returning to a Disney project with a decidedly more grown-up role. Efron will star in a remake of the 1987 comedy Three Men and a Baby.
News of the remake, which will be produced to stream exclusively on Disney+, comes from The Hollywood Reporter. Efron will lead the cast, with Gordon Gray (The Way Back, Secretariat) producing the project.
In the original film, the three men in question were played by Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg, and Ted Danson. The trio of friends find themselves taking care of an infant girl. It was followed in 1990 by the sequel Three Man and a Little Lady, in which the three men were still raising the girl, sharing a home with her mother.
