Seth Rogen and Zac Efron team up for an R-rated comedy

Odd couple attached to a project at Universal

Universal has won a bidding war for an untitled comedy that has Seth Rogen and Zac Efron attached to star.

Rogen will also produce, alongside his longtime pal and collaborator Evan Goldberg, according to a report by Deadline.

The movie will be written by Andrew Cohen and Brendan O'Brien, who are proteges of Judd Apatow like Rogen and Goldberg.

Universal apparently put up a seven-figure offer for the pitch, buoyed by the slew of R-rated comedy success stories this summer (Bridesmaids and The Hangover Part 2 chief among them).

The plot will see and Efron's fratboy's partying antics disrupting the life of family man Rogen, so unsurprisingly it's expected to have a touch of the Old School about it.

There's currently no news on a release date, but as it's yet to be written, don't expect it for some time yet.

The project should also mark Efron's biggest step away from the High School Musical franchise. He's proven himself a likeable presence in Me And Orson Welles, so perhaps this'll be the movie to open him up to a whole new audience.

Are you enjoying the current R-rated comedy renaissance? Think Efron and Rogen will make an effective pairing? You know where to comment...
