Ashley Tisdale To Star In 'High School Musical' Spin-Off
Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron and Corbin Bleu have all said [article id="1597474"]goodbye to their "High School Musical"[/article] alter egos for now, but apparently [artist id="2103458"]Ashley Tisdale[/artist] wasn't ready to just yet. She's reportedly going to play Sharpay Evans again in her own spin-off film for the Disney Channel called, "Sharpay's Fabulous Adventures."
A rep for the actress hadn't returned MTV News' request for comment by press time, but the rep did confirm to JustJared.com that Tisdale will star in and executive produce the movie, which will shoot this summer. It's expected to premiere in 2011. There is no word on whether any of her former "High School Musical" pals (particularly Lucas Grabeel who plays her twin brother, Ryan) will also return for the TV-movie.
"High School Musical 3: Senior Year" hit theaters in 2008, and there have been rumors that "High School Musical 4" is expected to go into production. While Tisdale and her co-stars seemed ready to try new projects after "HSM 3," she didn't rule out playing Sharpay again.
"We don't really know anything about 'HSM 4,' actually. It's flattering to leave the door open for a character, so that's really awesome," she said in late 2008. "I'm just kind of looking forward to other projects as well. It's something that we've always loved to do ... and [we're looking forward to] growing in our careers and looking ahead."
Tisdale has been busy with several non-"HSM" TV and movie projects, including the comedy "They Came From Upstairs" and a pilot for a CW series called "Hellcats." Tisdale also started her own production company, Blondie Girl Productions.
