Efron Denies Pirates Of The Caribbean Rumour

Zac Efron has denied reports he is set to star in the fourth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie - but insists he would love to be asked.

Tabloid reports last week speculated that Efron would be groomed to eventually take over from Johnny Depp in the Disney franchise.

It was said that the High School Musical star would pick up a $10 million (GBP6.1 million) paycheque for the starring role.

However, Efron told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show in Los Angeles on Wednesday morning: "Honestly, at this time it's just a rumour."
