Fourth “High School Musical” Planned

With the original cast now gone on to movie deals and old age that even Zac Efron’s heavy make-up can’t hide, the Disney Channel has announced a fourth “High School Musical” will premiere in 2010.

Back on television, the Disney Channel Original Movie will introduce a new cast of characters to be cast shortly with the plot described as “a classic love triangle set against the cross-town school rivalry between the East High Wildcats and West High Knights.”

Peter Barsocchini, who wrote the previous three films, will pen the script. Bill Borden and Barry Rosenbush return as the executive producers.
