Efron To Star In Pirates Of The Caribbean 4?

Heartthrob ZAC EFRON will pick up the biggest pay cheque of his career when he signs on to star in the fourth PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movie, according to reports.
Disney bosses want to groom Efron to eventually replace Johnny Depp as the star of the franchise, and they are offering him $10 million (GBP5.4 million) to star alongside Captain Jack Sparrow in the next installment of the blockbuster film series.
A source tells the National Enquirer, "Disney knew that Zac was reulctant to do any more High School Musical movies. He had already said there was 'no way' he'd return as Troy. So the Disney brass came up with an offer he couldn't refuse."
In-demand Efron has also been slated to take over from Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe on Broadway when the Brit's run in Equus comes to an end. The 21 year old hunk has denied those rumours.

NO No NO No NO!!! this is the worst idea ever! Who ever the idiots were to come up with this Idea should be fired. Zac Efron should absolutly never ever ever be in a pirates movie. This isn't some stupid little 'musical'. And above all zac efron cannot act to save his life!!! Please, disney, don't be saying crap like "oh, it will pull in a teenage girl crowd." Because I'm telling you right now it won't since I am a teenage girl. and it's not just me who feel this way i now a bunch of other people who hate this even more than I do with a burning passion. DON'T DO THIS OR YOU WILL FOR EVER REGRET IT AND WHEN YOU LIE IN BED AT NIGHT YOU WILL START TO FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU COULD HAVE DONE WITH THOSE TEN MILLION DOLLARS YOU FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD - NO!!!!!Disney, what are you thinking? Pirates of the Caribbean is NOT a teenage heart throb movie. Didn't you get that with the whole Will Turner and Elizabeth side story? People didn't watch the PoTC movies to watch Will and Elizabeth; they wanted to see Captain Jack and Barbossa square off. And if you had to pare it down to a single most important character, it would obviously be Captain Jack. Adding Zac to the cast is going to give the movie a cutsie "OMG you noob" feel to it. This is a VERY bad idea. Think about your primary demographic for the movie. It's NOT teenage girls. It's baby boomers who grew up riding the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and who think that Captain Jack is hilarious (men) or hot (women). Much of the humor in the PoTC movies is very adult and if you introduce Zac, what changes are you going to make to the feel of the movie to make it work? Turn it into a musical? Have him sing and dance? You already did Muppets Treasure Island, remember? Stick with what's worked well. Having Keith Richards as Captain Jack's dad was brilliant. Bring him back and explore that a bit more. I read a rumor that either Russell Brand or Sacha Baron Cohen might be approached to play Captain Jack's brother. That's sheer genius! Please don't pollute an otherwise great franchise by trying to change its audience demographic entirely. No teen idols in PoTC. Give Captain Jack some room to express his adult humor and explore his relationships with some gritty and half crazy family members, played by (adult) comedy or rock stars.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! NO! WHY! DISNEY...WHY R U PUTTING ME THROUGH THIS TORTURE!!! ZAC EFRON'S AN ABSOLUTE LOSER!!! A POSER! PATHETICALLY IDIOTIC!PLEASSSSSSSEEEEEE DON'T PUT ME THROUGH THIS PAIN AND SUFFERING! ZAC CAN'T ACT OR SING OR DANCE AND ALL HIS GOT ARE HIS LOOKS WHICH DON'T MATTER ANYwAY BECAUSE HE'S TALENTLESS AND A WORTHLESS LOAD OF BULL!In conclusion, Zac Efron is a barstad. Build a bridge and get over it.

People, view your comments critically... scott93933, I do love your view on it.... but I'm a teenage girl and frankly, I DO NOT WANT ZAC BLOODY EFRON IN IT!!! At the moment, I'm practically wilting inside like a flower that's been sprayed by weed-killer. But faster.I mean yeah, I can agree with him on this part: "He had already said there was 'no way' he'd return as Troy" since I didn't particularly like the HSM movies, but seriously.... "Disney bosses want to groom Efron to eventually replace Johnny Depp as the star of the franchise" ???? Disney won't have to groom him, they'd have to put him through the seven seas to get him smelling pirate. Plus, no one could ever replace Capt. Jack... he's one of a kind, AND he's played by Johnny Depp! Sigh.I can't even begin to speak the rest of my frustration/rage/annoyance.
