According to The Hollywood Reporter, Driving Dick Kelly will be directed by frequent Sacha Baron Cohen collaborator Dan Mazer.

Mazer, who co-wrote Borat and Bruno, recently directed quirky rom-com I Give it a Year.

The Hollywood Reporter teed ip the plot of the road trip film as follows:

“Efron will play a young man who is tricked into driving his grandfather (De Niro), a perverted former Army general who thinks his grandson is about to marry the wrong woman, to Florida for spring break.”

Efron has starred in a couple of comedies recently, including That Awkward Moment and  Bad Neighbours, in which he held a Robert De Niro party.

De Niro recently appeared in Grudge Match and American Hustle.
