Actor has turned down High School Musical adaptation


Zac Efron has refused to star in the movie version of High School Musical.

The actor, 20, and co-star Vanessa Hudgens, 19, were reportedly offered £500,000 to star in the film adaptation – but both have refused.

‘[Disney] are offering them £500,000 each,’ a source tells New York gossip column PageSix.

‘[But] Zac and Vanessa aren’t going to do it.’

A studio rep confirmed that talks are ongoing with the whole cast but wouldn’t confirm how much the pair had been offered.

‘We don’t comment on the specifics of negotiations.’
