A Shirtless Dwayne Johnson Confirms ‘Baywatch’ Starring Movie Role on Instagram
Photo caption: “”This is my beach bitch!” Rumors are true… we’re making #BAYWATCH the movie. Edgy, raunchy and hopefully, funny as all hell. Cue slo mo running on the beach… #WhoNeedsMouthToMouth #RedShortsBeHugginABrotha”
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.
