The 'Neighbors' actor is eyed to play the grandson of a perverted former Army general who is expected to be played by De Niro.
Zac Efron could share screen with Robert De Niro next. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former "High School Musical" star and the "Godfather" actor are in negotiations to star in an upcoming road trip comedy called "Dirty Grandpa".
The ex-Disney star is courted to play a young man who is driving his grandfather (De Niro) to Florida for spring break. The perverted former Army general tricks his grandson into coming with him as he thinks the young man is about to marry the wrong woman.
Efron was last seen in two comedies "That Awkward Moment" and "Neighbors". He is now filming a DJ film "We Are Your Friends". De Niro, meanwhile, recently appeared in "American Hustle" and "Grudge Match". His next films include "The Intern" alongside Anne Hathaway.
