Taylor Swift, Zac Efron Join The Lorax

Dr. Seuss's environmentalist parable The Lorax doesn't immediately suggest cute, singing stars, and yet Taylor Swift and Zac Efron have come aboard to star in Universal's animated adaptation anyway. Directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me), the film will star Efron as a boy who must search for the Lorax (Danny DeVito) in order to impress the girl he's wooing (Swift). Presumably, Truffula Trees get chopped down somewhere along the way, and Swift gets a new teen idol to compose a musical blind item about. [Coming Soon]
