According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has purchased an Untitled Workplace Comedy from writer Jason Filardi (17 Again) for Zac Efron to star in and produce.

Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot are in talks to produce via their Offspring Entertainment company.

Attaching himself to this project is the latest move for Zac Efron, who set up his production company at Warner Bros. in February. He has been getting his ducks in a row with his manager, Alchemy Entertainment's Jason Barrett. Barrett is going to oversee NRW's operations with Zac Efron.

This new project is a reuniting of the team behind 17 Again. That Efron vehicle picked up $136 million worldwide last year.
