Paramount Pictures is bringing iconic TV series Baywatch to the big screen. Filming for Baywatch is set to begin in January of 2016 in Miami, Florida. Johnson will executive produce the long awaited film along with Partner Danny Garcia through their 7 Bucks Production Company.
If you are too young to remember what Baywatch was all about, let’s take a tiny stroll along memory lane. Baywatch was an original TV series which ran for 12 years, between 1989 and 2001. The series followed the lives of a group of seemingly normal lifeguards keeping watch over Malibu Beach in Los Angeles. These dedicated lifeguards not only saved beach goers from near drowning or from the hooks of deadly sharks but they managed to save them from terrorists, drug and human traffickers, kidnappers, murders, and sometimes serial killers all while looking hot and sexy in their red swimsuits. Baywatch starred David Hasselhof, Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth and Carmen Electra.
It has yet to be confirmed if any of the hit TV series cast members will make cameo appearances on the feature film, however it has been confirmed that Zac Efron will join Dwayne Johnson on the feature film. Efron rose to fame as star of the High School Musical series and has recently starred opposite Seth Rogen in Neighbors. Efron is currently working on Neighbors 2 starring opposite Rogen and has recently wrapped filming on Dirty Grandpa in which he stars opposite Robert De Niro. Johnson has recently starred in blockbuster films Furious 7 and San Andreas, hit HBO series Ballers and is currently working on Central Intelligence which will also star Kevin Hart.
The feature film, Baywatch, will be directed by Seth Gordon who has working on films such as Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief.
