You’re probably used to seeing Dwayne Johnson without his shirt. Now get ready to see him in cinematic proportions—on the beach, surrounded by women, in red shorts…in slow motion. Sound familiar? The Rock confirmed his involvement with Paramount’s big-screen adaptation of the 90s TV hit series Baywatch with the Hollywood Reporter; and he’s not the only one. Comedic team Sean Anders and John Morris of We’re the Millers are set to direct the film, and Justin Malen (Trophy Wife) to rewrite the script.
The Rock confirmed his involvement on Instagram 10 months ago, saying: "'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"
