Zac Efron has signed on to star in the romantic comedy “Are We Officially Dating?” for Treehouse Pictures.
Tom Gormican will direct the film from his own screenplay about three friends in New York City who make a pact to remain single just as they each start to fall in love. The film will start production this fall in New York.
Treehouse Pictures' Justin Nappi and Kevin Turen are producing the film with Scott Aversano and Andrew O’Connor. QED International is handling international sales.
“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,” QED International CEO Bill Block said in a statement.
The film is the latest addition to QED’s growing sales slate as it heads into the fall markets. At Toronto and AFM, QED will be handling international sales for a number of upcoming films, including “Haunt,” written by Andrew Barrer and directed by Mac Carter; “Ten” directed by David Ayer and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger; and “Fading Gigolo," directed by John Turturro and starring Turturro and Woody Allen.
