Zac Efron Joins Shirtless-Friendly ‘Baywatch’ with The Rock

Oh, Baywatch. How blessed we are that Zac Efron is starring in a movie remake of the classic 1990s television show about a ridiculously good-looking team of lifeguards?

So blessed. Oh so blessed.

Luckily for us, Efron will be starring in a Baywatch movie alongside Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, which means plenty of on-screen moments of a shirtlessness – in slow motion.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that Efron is still in negotiations, so technically it’s not 100% confirmed yet.


Set to start production in February 2016, the movie will follow a “by-the-book and very serious lifeguard (Johnson) who is forced to team up with a young rule-flouting hothead (Efron) in order to save their beach from environmental destruction at the hands of an oil tycoon.”

Seth Gordon of Horrible Bosses is set to direct.

Baywatch made its red bathing suit-clad stars Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth and Nicole Eggert famous, oh and we guess David Hasselhoff too.

Guess we’ll be seeing lots of this (plus baby oil!):
