Dwayne Johnson has confirmed he is to star in a big screen adaptation of the hit television series Baywatch.

The Hollywood Reporter said Sean Anders and John Morris, who wrote We’re The Millers, will direct the film.

Jeremy Garelick and Peter Tolan were both previously attached to script Baywatch. Their versions of their comedy-heavy take on the script was said to have little to do with the original series, although parts had been written in for both Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff to reprise their roles. Current plans for the project, however, are unknown.

Johnson, a former WWE wrestler who often shows off his muscles in films, will play a lifeguard saving lives on a Santa Monica beach.
