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.’
