When you think about Baywatch, you probably don’t think of Christmas. The drama series is less about snowfall and presents and more about gratuitous bikini shots. However, the folk behind the upcoming Baywatch film are doing their best to alter that reputation - and they decided a Christmas card would be their first step towards change.
Over on Twitter, Baywatch gifted fans with a “Ho, Ho, Hot” Christmas card.
“Merry Christmas from our Baywatch family to yours,” the tweet reads. The e-card shows the cast of Baywatch decked out in their red swimsuits while snow falls around them. A slew of mistletoe bushels and presents can also be seen. But, of course, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is the card’s true star. The actor can be seen sitting shirtless with Santa’s festive cap upon his head, and The Rock looks like the definition of gym goals.
So, if you are looking from some post-holiday celebration venues or just want to stare at the beautifully sculpted physique of Zac Efron, then you may just want to send this Christmas card to yourself.
BAYWATCH follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Johnson) as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Efron). Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.
Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) is directing the film from a screenplay most recently written by Damian Shannon & Mark Swift and Barry Schwartz. Beau Flynn (San Andreas, Hercules), Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Up In the Air), and Michael Berk, Doug Schwartz (Soul Surfer) & Greg Bonann, creators of the iconic Baywatch television series, are producing. The executive producers are Michele Berk (Bandits, Kill the Sparrows), Louise Rosner (The Big Short, The Hunger Games franchise), Tom Pollock (Up In The Air, Oold School), and Ali Bell (Hitchcock). Eli Roth is a co-producer.
The film stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Central Intelligence, San Andreas, Fast & Furious franchise) and Zac Efron (Neighbors, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates). Joining Johnson and Efron are Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas, True Detective), Priyanka Chopra (Quantico), Jon Bass (Big Time in Hollywood, FL, The Newsroom), Kelly Rohrbach (Café Society), Ilfenesh Hadera (Billions), and Hannibal Buress (Daddy's Home, Neighbors).
