I don’t know if we are officially dating, but I can declare that Imogen Poots has joined the cast of “Are We Officially Dating?” Deadline says she’ll play Zac Efron’s love interest.
This is a romantic comedy (if you didn’t guess that from the title) about “three male friends in New York City who make a pledge to stay single just as each of them starts to fall in love.”Tom Gormican is directing his own script.
Deborah Ann Woll is already in the cast as the ex-wife of one of the characters. That still leaves some male and female roles to be cast. Who wants to hang with Zac and Imogen?!
If you don’t know who Poots is, you will soon; she’s about to pull a Jessica Chastain on us, with about eight or nine movies on the way out in the next year (I hesitate on the number because one is a Terrence Malick movie, “Knight of Cups,” which means her scenes might be cut). Before the end of this year you’ll see her in “Greetings from Tim Buckley” and “A Late Quartet.” Her 2013 movies include the Malick one, “Filth,” “All Is By My Side,” and “Need for Speed.”
