Sony’s decision to overhaul the “Spider-Man” movie franchise and replace director Sam Raimi and star Tobey Maguire was met with some skepticism from fans, but the film studio has already made significant strides by hiring Marc Webb as the reboot’s new director. While a replacement hasn’t been hired for Maguire, there’s no shortage of actors that would like to swing into the role of Peter Parker – including “High School Musical” star Zac Efron.
When MTV News spoke with the actor on the red carpet of the Academy Awards on Sunday (March 7), Efron emphasized that he would love to star as Marvel’s beloved superhero icon. “Are you kidding? It would be a dream come true,” he said. “I think it would be an honor. I would tear it up.” [Source]

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are Young Hollywood’s “it” couple, but that doesn’t mean that they’re perfect. In the March 2010 issue of J-14 magazine, the 22-year-old Charlie St. Cloud actor emphasizes just that. Zac shared, “I’ve failed miserably several times at relationships growing up. It’s not like I’ve got all the right moves!” [Source]
Zac Efron has been nominated as “Favourite Movie Actor” to this year’s Nickeodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards. Click here and vote for him! The event will take place on 27 March 2010.
Zac Efron woke up on a water bed of a different kind when his £650,000 Hollywood home was flooded by heavy rain. The 22-year-old “High School Musical” star’s pool overflowed and gushed into his home while he slept, leaving him ankle-deep in water.
A source said: “He and some pals spent an entire day mopping out his house and sandbagging doors to block further flooding.”
But he is determined to stop it happening again and has called in landscapers. [Source]
Vanessa Hudgens is desperate to marry boyfriend Zac Efron. Hudgens – who’s been dating the hunky actor since 2007 – has told pals she’s keen to make her relationship with Efron official, but he’s reluctant to commit.
Vanessa was getting her nails done with pal Ashley Tisdale when she was overheard complaining that “Zac just won’t commit… and everybody else in Hollywood is getting an engagement ring – except me! Did you see Carrie Underwood’s ring? And Kristen Bell’s? It’s, like, sooooo gorgeous!” [Source]

Warner Bros has been as stingy as any major on handing out overall production deals to actors in recent years. But I’ve learned the studio has just given a first look 2-year deal to Zac Efron. And Warner Bros plans to buy pitches, spec scripts, and books for Efron and his still unformed company to develop as star vehicles. His manager, Alchemy Entertainment’s Jason Barrett, will be an exec producer on the projects.
At 22, Efron is by far the youngest actor with an overall Warner Bros film deal. I’m told he hasn’t named his company and is still working out details like whether he’ll take office space on the lot. My insiders said the studio has been high on him for several years, especially his hustle on the New Line film “17 Again” which he promoted heavily in six overseas territories.
Warner Bros is determined to find him a franchise. Which begs the question whether he’ll be the next DC Entertainment superhero, or Bourne-like action thriller leading man, or buddy comedy co-star, or all, or none. True, Efron has made a determined effort to steer away from his “High School Musical” teen heartthrob image, dropping out of a “Footloose” remake to attach to Universal’s serious dramatic vehicle “The Death And Life of Charlie St. Cloud” releasing this fall.
But one of Zac’s upcoming projects I’ve already announced will be the first developed under his new Warner Bros – the Back To The Future-like film, as yet untitled, that melds two projects: a pitch from writers Tim Calpin and Kevin Jakubowski, and the other called “Algorithm” that the studio was already developing.
