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?

High School Musical 3 is an upcoming threequel to Disney Channel’s popular High School Musical television franchise, set for release for late 2008 or early 2009 in theaters.

Although High School Musical 3 has yet to be confirmed, Zac Efron was quoted from People Magazine, saying:

“I can tell you that if the script is good and if we all agree on a final script, then there’s nothing that is going to hold us back from doing it. We have fun making these movies and that’s very rare in this business.”

oh stupend new but zac and vanessa will make the hsm3 or not??

86 you sound like one very unhappy person…if you hate the tv movie why bash these actors and the hit show which has brought so much joy and wholesome entertainment to young kids and a lot of older people as well…there is nothing about it which should be torn that way and surely one happy tv show for kids does not deserve such hateful remarks…too sad that there is so much hating in this world when it would be just easier to live and let live and be happy…

I can’t wait for HSM 3 to come out! I never believe what magazines say if it hasn’t been confirmed, but I hope Vanessa doesn’t get jipped (salary wise) in HSM3. Both her and Zac deserve the same salary, because no matter what people say about Vanessa she is as important as Zac in the HSM movies. She puts the same amount of effort and work into the movie as does the rest of the cast. I personally, wouldn’t be interested watching a HSM movie if there was no Vanessa (Gabriella) in it. Vanessa and Zac bring the story together, and their pay should reflect that.
Yay HSM! Yay Vanessa and Zac! :)

ick hate the titles..

van is only getting paid less cause of the scandal

hahaha thats so funny that vanessa aka skankynessa hoegdens is being offered less money! but at the same time, one and a half million is pretty damn good considering shes like on 18! i wuldnt be complaining!

Why would anyone be ‘ecstatic’ to be in this piece of shít?

I don’t think Vanessa will receive the same amount only because she isn’t as marketable as Zac is right now. I don’t mean that in a bad way, but Zac is mainly an actor and has gotten to the status of making more money per pic. Vanessa on the other hand has been more focused on music, which is doing great for her. All I’m saying is in any movie each actor is payed according to certain criteria and it also depends on the budget.
I don’t think the actors are really that shallow and babyish if they really believe in the project. And it’s definately more money than the other two combined that they’re being offered.
Hell Zac only got $100,000 for doing Hairspray. Man that was a steal, but it was also before he got big. Not sure what he’s being offered for Seventeen though.

why is zac being offered more money than vanessa. I think that vanessa will bring more fans/adult that zac because of the scandal. Vanessa should get the same if not more money.

Dang zac gets more than twice the amount vanessa does, that is so not fair

anonymous @ 10/03/2007 at 5:55 pm

i love them both i am so excited for HSM 3, i hope there is a prom

anonymous @ 10/03/2007 at 5:57 pm

i honestly dont know why vanessa is getting so much attention, that is the last thing she needs. I want her to learn her lesson. I am dying to hear from her about the scandal. but i still like her. Ill just never see her as the same

i honestly dont know why vanessa is getting so much attention. Thats the last thing she needs. I want her to learn her lesson. Yeah I know she apologized and all but that was through her publists, not her. Until I hear from her, I dont know what to think of her.

This is OK Magazine people! Just recently the claimed that Vanessa and Zac had broken up, only to find pictures of them together at a gas station weeks later. None of the stars have confirmed it, Disney hasn’t confirmed it, and there’s no way they were able to come to an agreement so fast when just recently Zac was saying nothing has been decided yet.

As for Vanessa getting paid less, I think some of you are forgetting that she was going to get paid less even before the nude scandel. Zac was already getting offered more than the rest of the cast before the pictures even got out, and he was telling everyone else to fight for more.

Disney said in a statement that they forgive her. If they want people to believe that, then they’re going to pay her the same amount as everyone else. Besides, Vanessa can still threaten to drop from the movie, and Disney still knows how much that would end up hurting them. I’d be very surprised if Vanessa didn’t get the same amount of money as Zac in the end.


hope its great!!!!!!!! zanessa better stay 2gether!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

The thing is all this talk about whether Vanessa is paid less then Zac or the same is all academic because I don’t believe Disney will publicly announce how much the cast is paid. And I don’t see either Zac or Vanessa just volunteering exactly how much they were paid either.

omg i hope vanessa will be in hsm3 ( zac & vanessa rocks) !!!!!!!!!!

#75: I like this one “If you want me you have to take Vanessa. We’re a package deal.”

Just wait until Disney confirm the cast HSM3! But hope HSM3 will include both Zac and Vanessa.

we’ll see if zac and vanessa will do it…cause zac wants the scrip to be good and for them to pay vanessa more money. I mean if its going to be in threaters she should get paid more money!!

I do not like those titles at all, I hope they go to the prom in HSM 3 and they had better have the original cast.
Yes it does seem quite sudden, the 2nd one comes out on DVD in Dec.

OMG OMG OMG , que sonhoo *-*
high shool musical 3 ?
kenny amo você x3
vanessa você é TUDO pra mim !

OH my!! so soon! Im living in utah, and i was going to leave for school in idaho in january, but i now I think i will delay college even longer just so i can desperatly try hang around near wherever the are filming. What do i do?!?!!


If Zac and Vanessa don’t do it, the movie will suck big time! Disney will lose money.

As for the money, hmm. I’m curious to see how it will work out. I doubt Zac will let Disney pay her so little. But who really knows?

& if Vanessa doesnt do it. I’m sure Zac wont do it.

hmmm, all that is clear is that Zac and Vanessa are TRUE hollywood love. and i think thats good for them :)
