He also shared his thoughts on the response to the Efron casting news, and what to expect from the movie in an Instagram post:
Cool to see the INSANE global reaction to our announcement yesterday for Zac Efron to co-star with me in BAYWATCH. Clearly he’s one unattractive sumbitch but he’s a great dude who’s ready to make something epic. BAYWATCH is the most successful TV property of all time, so I’m fired up to produce it along with my long time producing partner Beau Flynn @flynnpictureco and legendary Ivan Reitman. Director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) has a dope vision and is ready to roll. Over the past few years I’ve taken careful steps with this franchise cause we want to do it right – big, fun, global, sexy and bad ass mixed in with “This is my beach bitch” kind of RATED R comedy. We’ll start shooting at the top of 2016 and one more thing.. just wait ’til you see who we cast for our girls
Shirtless Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson throughout one entire movie — consider us sold.
Johnson, who just landed on Forbes’ highest-paid actors list (he landed in 11th place, earning $31.5 million), was spotted trying to make an incognito exit out of The Palm restaurant in Beverly Hills, Calif. last night (Aug. 11, 2015). Launch the gallery to see those pics!
