‘High School Musical 4’ Update: Zac Efron Not Returning Because Of ‘Fifty Shades Freed’?

By on

Fans who eagerly anticipate the release of High School Musical 4 will be disappointed with this update on the film as reports suggest that the reunion of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens will not take place due to prior commitments.

Several weeks ago, TheBitBag reported that Efron and Hudgens were already seen filming some scenes for the movie. However, recent posts noted that fans should give up on the idea of a Efron-Hudgens reunion because the former is going to focus on his upcoming erotic film Fifty Shades Freed.

According to several publications, the High School Musical alumnus is going to replace Jamie Dornan as the lead actor in the Fifty Shades franchise. It is primarily because of the problems the producers are experiencing with Dornan and him taking care of his wife, Amelia Warner.

On a good note, there is no confirmation though on whether or not Efron will indeed replace Dornan in the upcoming third installment of the erotic film. But if he does, who will be there to take the lead role in the High School Musical 4?

In a separate post of TheBitBag, it was revealed that a character named Peyton will be featured in the film and according to the alleged script of the film, he is somehow a Troy Bolton-like character. ?My family moves a lot for my dad?s job. Not great for making friends. But sports? They?re always there for me,? according to the script wherein Peyton is believed to be the one speaking.

If Peyton would really be presented as someone who is similar to Troy Bolton (Efron), who is very active in sports, then the character can definitely take the lead role of the movie. But the question is, will he be dating Gabriella (Hudgens)?

As of now, there is no definite answer on whether or not Zac Efron will reprise his role as Troy or at least have a cameo in the High School Musical 4. What is certain though is that fans do want him to be in the movie. Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
