Zac Efron is on board to star in Three Men and a Baby, a remake of the 1987 comedy being made by Disney.
The actor, 32, has reportedly bagged himself a lead role in the forthcoming film, as his name is the first one to be linked to the highly-anticipated remake.
Gordon Gray, who most recently worked on the Ben Affleck drama The Way Back, is on board as producer, while the project is still searching for a director
Initially a remake of a French film, Three Men brought together a trio of 1980s stars - Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson - as New York bachelors who find themselves caring, and subsequently, falling for, an infant. Drug dealers who threatened the child also figured into the plot.
The movie was directed by Leonard Nimoy and proved to be a major hit, becoming the first live-action Disney film to cross the $100 million mark domestically. It was followed by Three Men and a Little Lady in 1990 that reunited the cast but not Nimoy.
A director is yet to be announced, and it is unknown when the film will be released.
