Zac Efron becomes a dad in a cult movie remake for Disney

Zac Efron became a star through the Disney film series “High School Musical”. Now, after many years of working for other studios, he is returning to Disney and takes on the lead role in the cult comedy remake “Three more men, one more baby”.

If Zac Efron was still a singing and dancing youngster in the “High School Musical” series, he will take on great responsibility in his latest film role: He plays a (substitute) dad – more precisely one of three.

Because as The Hollywood Reporter reports, Zac Efron takes on a role in the remake of “Three Men And A Baby”.

While the title is now correctly translated “Three Men and a Baby”, the Hollywood comedy was shown in German cinemas in 1988 under the title “Another three men, one more baby”. “Three men and a baby” is the name of the French original in Germany, of which the 80s film is already a remake.

“Three more men, one more baby”

“Another three men, one more baby” starring Tom Selleck, Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg was a huge hit in the cinemas, grossed 168 million US dollars worldwide and developed into a cult comedy. It is also the first real-life Disney film ever to break the $ 100 million mark at the US box office – not uncommon today, but a gigantic success back then.

The film is about three bachelors who share an apartment in Manhattan. When one day there is a baby in front of their door whose father is supposed to be one of them, chaos breaks out. Because none of them really know how to take care of a baby – but they do their best and soon they can no longer imagine life without the little girl!

Incidentally, the comedy was directed by Spock actor Leonard Nimoy. For the sequel “Three Men and a Little Lady”, Nimoy did not return to the director’s chair, but Selleck, Danson and Guttenberg took over the leading roles again and took care of their now slightly older daughter as replacement dads. Directed by Emile Ardolino.

The other men are still missing

Zac Efron will play in the remake for the streaming service Disney, according to THR, as one of the three men who take care of the foundling and possibly the daughter of one of them and get from one absurd situation to the next. It is not yet known which actors complete the trio. A director also has to be found.

The script, however, is already in place, contributed by Will Reichel, while Gordon Gray takes over the production. And in this role, he already has experience with family films in which men are overwhelmed when it comes to parenting issues – he produced the comedies “Daddy Without a Plan” and “Tooth Fairy On Probation” with Dwayne Johnson, among others.

Zac Efron is currently on Netflix

It will be a while before the “Three More Men, One More Baby” remake can be seen on Disney, as the comedy has to be shot first.
