Ok. Let’s get nuts.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dwayne Johnson is set to star in a reboot of Baywatch (yes, that TV show with David Hasslehoff) for Paramount. This is the first I’ve heard of this one but…I mean, sure, why the hell not? We’re remaking literally everything else that ever existed ever.
“Paramount has been trying to mount a Baywatch movie for years and has begun to ramp up its efforts. A number of previous writers have taken a crack at the script including Jeremy Garelick and Peter Tolan. At one point the action was set to revolve around a series of shark attacks that led the Baywatch team to investigate a drug-smuggling operation,” they write. “The studio also has hired Justin Malen to rewrite and has brought aboard the hot comedy writing team of Sean Anders and John Morris (We’re the Millers) to direct.”
THR also seems to think Johnson, soon to take on the supervillain Black Adam for Warner Bros., is perfect for this movie because abs. But we know he’s got talent. I mean, just look at that form!
