Chris Hemsworth sparked an A-list trend as Hollywood stars make their way to Australia's Byron Bay year after year.... Zac Efron has signed on to another project while living in Australia, this time produced by his friend Kyle Sandilands and linked to Dannii Minogue. The 49-year-old KIIS FM radio star revealed exciting the news on the Mediaweek podcast last week. Sandilands explained that his company, King Kyle Group, had recently gone into business with a company that organises live pets for children's entertainment. The production company will be creating a promo cartoon based on the animals.
"Zac Efron is going to be one of the voices, Dannii Minogue will be one of the voices, I'll do one of the voices," he said.

Efron has been working on the upcoming film Gold in South Australia. He will star alongside Anthony Hayes and award-winning actor Susie Porter, while Hayes will also direct the film, which is based on a screenplay he co-wrote with Polly Smyth. Gold is a taut thriller about greed and the lengths people will go to secure themselves a fortune.
It follows two drifters travelling through the outback who stumble across the biggest gold nugget ever found. They hatch a plan to protect and excavate their bounty, with one man leaving to secure the necessary equipment. The other man remains and must endure the harsh desert climate, preying wolves and intruders while battling the creeping doubt that he has been abandoned to his own fate. Hayes said it was an "absolute gift" to have secured Efron as his main man for the film. "I can't wait to deliver this bold, visceral and cinematic film to audiences all around the world," he said. RELATED: Aussie's bold proposal to Zac Efron Zac has been residing in Australia since August, where he met his new girlfriend Vanessa Valladares. The two are currently living together in a luxurious $22 million beachfront mansion in Byron Bay. Vanessa met Zac at the Byron Bay General Store cafe where she was working. He's been regularly spotted out and about enjoying the laidback Aussie lifestyle as of late, but it looks like Zac Efron is taking his Australian initiation one step further, after popping into a local barber for a new 'do. The High School Musical star popped into Attaboy Hair at Kent Town this week, where the team treated him to a whole new look in the form of a mullet. "Zac Efron dropped into Attaboy Hair for a tidy up today, so we gave him a mullet," they said.
