Remember the 90s when Baywatch (and then Baywatch Hawaii), a TV series about California lifeguards, hit the screens? The oh-so-hot show with an even hotter Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff was a smashing success as one of the most watched shows in the world! Well, the guys at Hollywood are bringing it back, this time as a movie!
The cast includes some real eye candy with Dwayne The Rock Johnson and Zac Efron from ‘High School Musical’ in the lead roles. It was Johnson who sent out the first tweet saying, “Welcoming my dude @ZacEfron to #BAYWATCH. Our movie will be big, fun and RATED R.. Like me when I drink.”
The female lead is yet to be decided but whoever is picked will have to worlk really hard to beat Pam’s sultry charms. The film itself is supposed to be based on the original series starring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson but it is not known whether these two will make an appearance.
The movie is about a serious lifeguard (Dwayne Johnson) who has to team up with a younger hot-head (Efron) to save their beach from an oil tycoon hell-bent on its environmental destruction. With Seth Gordon as the director, Damian Shannon and Mark Swift as writers and Beau Flynnand Ivan Reitman as producers, the movie is all set to start production sometime in early 2016.
