The former Disney actor is set to share screen with Russell Crowe in his upcoming movie while the 'Veep' star becomes the latest addition to 'Hocus Pocus' sequel.

AceShowbiz - "The Greatest Showman" star Zac Efron has signed on to play opposite Russell Crowe in the Vietnam war film "The Greatest Beer Run Ever".

The film is an adaptation of the book, "The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A True Story of Friendship Stronger Than War", written by Joanna Molloy and John "Chickie" Donohue.

It's based on Donohue's true story of leaving New York in 1967 to bring beer to his childhood buddies while they were fighting in Vietnam.

"Green Book" Oscar winner Peter Farrelly is directing.

Meanwhile, Sam Richardson has joined the cast of the "Hocus Pocus" sequel.

The actor will star alongside Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy in the long-awaited sequel to the 1993 fantasy film.

The original movie told the story of three witches being resurrected in Salem, Massachusetts and the upcoming sequel will see three young women bring the Sanderson sisters back to life, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The original film was initially viewed as a box-office flop but has since become a cult classic, with fans urging the cast to reunite for a sequel.

Sam is joining the project - which is currently in production - after making a cameo appearance in the comedy series Ted Lasso and starring alongside Chris Pratt in "The Tomorrow War".

His other new projects include "Shoot the Rooster" and "Senior Year".
