​Zac Efron To Star In 'Three Men And A Baby' Remake For Disney+

Zac Efron is to star in a remake of cult classic Three Men and a Baby.

The Eighties film is being remade for streaming platform Disney+, with the musical star as one of its leads.

Efron is no stranger to Disney, having made his name as Troy Bolton in 2006's High School Musical, a film that spawned a whole HSM franchise.

Taking on the role of one of three potential dads to a young baby, however, means we're likely to see the actor in a new light - as a parental figure and prospective father. Troy's definitely grown up, you guys!

The original 1987 movie was in itself a remake of a French film and starred Ted Danson (The Good Place), Tom Selleck (best known to millennials as Richard in Friends) and Steve Guttenberg (Police Academy).

The comedy drama saw the three actors playing New York bachelors unexpectedly caring for a baby who was left on their doorstep, without knowing which one of them was her father.

The film was such a hit that a sequel, Three Men and a Little Lady, followed three years later and, for years, there were rumours of a third film, titled Three Men and a Bride, but this hasn't materialised.

This new offering is written by Will Reichel, while Gordon Gray will produce. Gray is best known for his sports dramas such as The Rookie and The Way Back.

There are no clues as to who could play the other two male leads, but we cannot wait to find out who is in the running. Could it be one of Efron's Disney co-stars?

Zac recently starred in Netflix's new travel show Down to Earth, which saw the actor travel around the world searching for sustainable living solutions.

The new TV series also set off a heated debate between viewers, with many taking to Twitter to discuss the star's 'dad bod'.

Down to Earth is available to watch on Netflix now.
