‘s romantic comedy Are We Officially Dating?
helmed from his own script that was on the 2010 Black List.
A dating movie, which will be shopped at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival is ‘told from the male perspective about the lengths men will go through to avoid being officially in a relationship.’
Plans are to start filming the comedy in New York this November.
In a statement, co-producer Justin Napi said:
Are We Offically Dating?’ is a story about timing and your twenties, and just how difficult it can be. We’re thrilled to be teaming with Tom Gormican on his relatable script which will resonate with a large audience.
QED International CEO Bill Block added:
We strongly believe in the global appeal of this project and we’re excited to work with the team at Treehouse Pictures to bring it to market in Toronto. ‘Are We Officially Dating?’ is an excellent addition to QED’s growing sales slate, and underscores our commitment to commercial, filmmaker-driven product.
Surely you know Efron will next appear in comedy-drama Liberal Arts, which can be seen next month, but how about Gormican who has sold Bad Form to Warner Bros. and Save the Date to Sony, as well as he is currently working on a television pilot with Greg Daniels and Tracy Katsky.
