Rumored Movie Project for Zac Efron ~ “Liberal Arts”
After several Facebook postings and numerous tweets between yesterday and today, it appears that Zac is in Ohio working on a movie called “Liberal Arts”. This has NOT been confirmed and until it is, should be taken as just a rumor.
Information about the movie:
Richard Jenkins Joins Elizabeth Olsen In Josh Radnor’s ‘Liberal Arts’
“How I Met Your Mother” star Josh Radnor made his feature directing debut last year with “Happythankyoumoreplease.” It wasn’t very good. But for his sophomore feature, Radnor has already stepped up us his game. Earlier this year, and fresh out of the Sundance Film Festival, where she earned incredible buzz for her performance in “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” Radnor landed Elizabeth Olsen as the star for “Liberal Arts,” and now he’s lined up another accomplished thesp who made an appearance in his first film.
Variety reports that awesome and ever busy character actor Richard Jenkins will re-team for the story about Jesse, a 35-year-old man (Radnor) who can’t leave his college life behind as he comes to grips with the responsibilities of adulthood. Olsen will play Zibby, a 19 year-old college student who falls for Jesse over their mutual love of music and literature, but their difference in age starts to get in the way as Jesse moves farther away from a hedonistic lifestyle. Jenkins will play Jesse’s favorite professor who introduces him to Zibby’s family at his retirement party.
John Magaro, Michael Weston and “Twilight” star Elizabeth Reaser have also joined the cast as a depressed college friend; another friend and a potential love interest respectively. The film will go in front of cameras in June during the break from “How I Met Your Mother” and we’d presume a Sundance or SXSW premiere next year is in the works.

Josh Radnor’s follow-up to “HappyThankYouMorePlease” — which also stars Elizabeth Olsen — centers on a 35-year-old yearning for a college lifestyle.
Allison Janney is heading back to school.
The actress, best known for her work onThe West Wing, has joined the cast ofLiberal Arts, Josh Radnor’s follow-up to HappyThankYouMorePlease. Radnor is starring in the pic with Elizabeth Olsen.
The movie has been casting up ahead of its summer start in Ohio with Richard Jenkins and Elizabeth Reaser among those already on board.
Janney will play a cold English professor in the film, which centers on a 35 year-old (Radnor) still yearning for the life of a college student but who must come to terms with his age and responsibilities.
In a nice bit of homecoming, the scenes on campus will be filmed at Allison’s alma mater, Kenyon College, which Radnor attended as well. Janey got her acting start at Kenyon when as a freshman she auditioned for a play Paul Newman was directing and got the part. At the suggestion of Newman and his wife Joann Woodward, she studied at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York and went on to make her Broadway debut in Noel Coward’s Present Laughter. Her performance earned her the Outer Critics Circle Award and Clarence Derwent Award.
