High School Musical 3: Filming Begins January

Exciting news! Filming for High School Musical 3 begins in January, according to OK! magazine.

“The script is getting written — it starts in January, and it’s a feature film,” HSM‘s Jason (Ryne Sanborn, 18) said at the world premiere of High School Musical: The Ice Tour in NYC on Sept. 29. “[But] I haven’t gotten a call saying, ‘We want you to do it.’”

Olesya Rulin, 21, aka piano player Kelsi, added, “It if happens, I’ll be ecstatic to be in the third one.”

OK! also reports, “After the Vanessa Hudgens nude photo scandal, and the rising profile of series star Zac Efron, Kaycee Stroh, 23, who plays Martha, hopes the cast remains the same. ‘Our fingers are crossed because we love each other. The chemistry’s great with the 10 of us.’”

According to Life & Style, Zac is being offered $3.25 million dollars to star in HSM3 and Vanessa, a measly $1.3 million dollars. Chump change, people!

According to IMDB, two of the film’s working titles are High School Musical 3: Gradu-Dancin and Haunted High School Musical. Do you like any of those titles?

    I hate OK! Magazine .kk . They are a piece of shit. I mean they make phony storiees. U people believe that shit. First they like target poor baby Dannylin (curse me if i spelled that wrong) now Zanessa. Thats wrong

  • Tony

    This is false info. Everything OK mag says is not true, you can’t believe anything from it anymore. Anyways there will be a HSM3 100% like zac has said before that there will be one and to mark his words. If there is a new one it will be out between October and December of 2008. It would probably start filming in march/april. He is going to be working on his new movie soon (Seventeen) and the script is not even done for hsm3 yet so you can’t say anyones salaries yet.

  • uuuuuuuuuu

    What! How come vanessa only got 1,3 million…I say vanessa dont agree…on that make it higher….she has a life to pay…

  • Amor

    why zac recives more money for film than vanessa??

  • troy

    Corbin Bleu told TVGuide.com that he thinks the January start is a rumor because they still don’t have a completed script yet nor have they signed anybody yet. I would think if they were going to start filming in January they would be further along in hammering deals and whatnot. Who knows maybe at one time they were considering a January start date but at this point that doesn’t look like its going to happen.

  • Secret

    i like HSM 3 only so it would be fair with the previous HSM’s that don’t have any tail at all. But if they wan’t it to happen (to have a tail) then I would go for HSM3:Gradu-Dancin…..
    Haunted HSM isn’t a great title…..
    HOPE THAT THE ORIGINAL CAST WILL STILL BE IN THE THIRD MOVIE… I LOVE SEEING THEM ON THE THIRD… THEY HAVE ACTED WELL AND THEY SHOULD NOT BE ELIMINATED SINCE THEY’VE CONTRIBUTED A LOT TO THE FIRST TWO TV MOVIE….
    ORIGINAL CAST REMAIN!!!!!! THAT’S MY ORDER…..
    HSM3 TITLE IS JUST RIGHT FOR US HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES ACCORDING TO SURVEY. 8 OUT OF TEN LIKE TO HAVE HSM3 ONLY AS THE TITLE…. AND THAT’S ALL…

  • Secret

    i DON’T CARE ’bout Vanessa’s scandal… what’s good is seeing them all in the HSM3. I love them all because they make the film beautiful and no one can make it beautiful but them ONLY…
    STAY ORIG CAST, STAY………………
    Hope Disney would not eliminate some of the original cast… i love to see them all on the movie and the six main cast jumping on the movie’s poster and cd’s cover….

    Great NEWS HSM fans, i have just read an article from the website: http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com and it goes like this::::::::::

    Great news, High School Musical fans: Two of your favorite actresses are signed up for High School Musical 3!

    According to Us Weekly, both Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens will reprise their roles in the follow-up, with the latter even receiving a “substantial increase” in pay.

    “Vanessa is locked for the movie,” a High School Musical source tells Us. “She is very happy that the deal is done.”

    So are numerous fans, who can also rejoice over the fact that Zac Efron is reportedly also signed for the film.

    “The contract will be signed within the next week,” a Hudgens source says. “It is almost a done deal.”Hudgens’ naked picture scandal – maybe you heard about it – led to reports that either Adrienne Bailon and Sabrina Bryan would replace Vanessa in the franchise.

    High School Musical 3, the first in the hit movie series to be a theatrical release, is set to begin shooting in January 2008.

    Co-stars Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman are also in final negotiations, according to their publicist.
