First Look: Frat Boys Zac Efron & Dave Franco in 'Neighbors' Comedy

September 2, 2013
Next summer, Zac Efron and Seth Rogen are teaming up for a comedy called Neighbors (formerly known as Townies), but in the story the two actors will be at odds. Efron is playing a raucous member of a college fraternity who is making life for Rogen, his wife (Rose Byrne) and their newborn baby downright miserable. Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Muppets) is directing the film, and now we have a first look at the douchebag bro played by Efron, and of course, the actor has his shirt off. Plus, you'll also see Dave Franco (frat vice president and Efron's best friend) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Look!
This new image also showed up with Efron and Franco dress as Robert De Niro characters:
Neighbors is directed by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, The Muppets) with a script from Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O'Brien (producers of Funny People). In the film a young couple (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) suffering from arrested development are forced to live next to a rowdy and obnoxious fraternity house after the birth of their newborn baby. Zac Efron, Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse all play frat boys and Lisa Kudrow and Jake Johnson also have supporting roles in the Universal Pictures comedy that's slated to hit theaters next summer on May 9th, 2014. Sound good?
