The popular television series Baywatch, which ran from 1989 to 1999 and starred David Hasselhoff and a bevy of beauties, is getting rebooted by Paramount into a R-rated comedy film that will star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (Furious 7) and Zac Efron (17 Again). It will be a hotshot former Olympian (Efron) butting heads with Mitch Buchannon (Johnson), the leader of an elite team of lifeguards.


Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Theft) will direct, based on a script by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift.

Baywatch will start filming around February 2016.
