Zac Efron sparked drama among ‘High School Musical’ fans when he revealed that he’s very open to the possibility of returning to the Disney franchise for a reboot.
When asked during an interview with E! News if he would be interested, the 34-year-old said “of course.”
“I mean to have the opportunity to go back and work with that team would be amazing,” the “Firestarter” actor said. “My heart is still there. That would be incredible. I hope it happens.”
Efron revealed his interest in a new version of “High School Musical” during his press tour for Blumhouse’s new horror movie “Firestarter,” adapted from the Stephen King novel of the same name.
The book was adapted into a 1984 horror film starring a young Drew Barrymore in the title role. The new reboot features Efron alongside Ryan Kiera Armstrong and Sydney Lemmon.
The television movie “High School Musical” first aired on the Disney Channel in 2006 and was followed by a sequel in 2007. A third movie, “High School Musical 3: Senior Year,” opened in theaters in 2008.
