Zac Efron will star in a remake of Three Men and a Baby
Speaking of heartthrobs, Zac Efron has been tapped to be part of the remake of the comedy film, Three Men and a Baby. A blockbuster hit in 1987, the original movie directed by Leonard Nimoy tells the story of three bachelors whose lives turn upside down when they take in an infant girl left on their doorstep. It wasn't revealed yet who the actor will play and who'll be joining him in the project, but the upcoming project is headed to Disney+. Fingers crossed, it premieres when the streaming platform is finally available in Asia so we can watch right when it's released.
