Zac Efron Is Ready To Reboot ‘High School Musical’

Zac Efron is one of the lead actors for the re-make of the horror movie Firestarter, which releases this Friday May 13.

It’s an adaption of the Stephen King novel of the same name that was made into a 1984 horror movie starring a young Drew Barrymore in the title role.

The new reboot casts Efron opposite Ryan Kiera Armstrong and Sydney Lemmon.

Efron is currently on a press tour to promote the film, and he was asked by E! News whether he’d be interested in another possible High School Musical sequel.


“Of course, of course,” Efron said. “I mean, to have an opportunity in any form to go back and work with that team would be so amazing. My heart is still there. That would be incredible. I hope it happens.”

Efron’s acting breakthrough occurred when he played Troy Bolton in the 2006 Disney Channel original movie. It led to two sequels in 2007 and 2008, both of which starred Efron. The third film opened in theaters and grossed nearly $253 million at the worldwide box office.

The “High School Musical” franchise was somewhat rebooted in 2019 with the release of the television series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series on Disney+. The meta musical-comedy series is set at the high school where the original movies were filmed and centers on a group of teenage musical theater lovers who decide to mount a production of High School Musical. The show was a launching pad for pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo, who starred as Season 1 lead Nini Salazar-Roberts.

This Friday May 13 is the launch of the new Firestarter. That’s when it opens in theaters and will also be available to stream on Peacock.
