Zac Efron’s Upcoming Film Claimed to be Copying Another New Film

Zac Efron's Upcoming Film Claimed to be Copying Another New Film

Often times in the film world, films can come off as similar especially when falling under the same genre. Fans have noticed that Zac Efron’s latest movie  ‘A Family Affair’ has copied another new film which has been recently released.

Zac’s new film A Family Affair stars him alongside Nicole Kidman, as she makes her Netflix debut. This film navigates an awkward love situation between Zac and Nicole.

In the movie , Zac plays Chris Cole, who is a self-absorbed Hollywood star who stars dating Brook Harwood, played by Nicole. However Brooke is the mother of his assistant, Zara (played by Joey King).

When seeing the trailer of the film , it’s hard for one not to think of the film The Idea of You. Both are rom-coms featuring a romance between an older woman and a younger man, which is seen by a lot as a social taboo. Apart from both of them being a rom-com that’s not the only similarity. The two rom-coms also include the older woman’s daughter as  a catalyst  to the main conflict.

Some fans also pointed out that A Family Affair was filmed in 2022 and was due to be released in November 2023, meaning it would have come out before Hathaway’s film The Idea Of You.

What do you think, do you think this was merely a coincidence ?
