But yes, there is a Baywatch movie coming out next summer that riffs on the uber popular 1990s lifeguard TV series. And it does star Dwayne Johnson as Mitch Bucchanon, who some guy named David Hasselhoff portrayed on the show.
Because I know all of you clicked on this link for the pic, I'm not going to waste any more of your time. So here it is:
She takes #BAYWATCH to another level.. World fell in love with @alexannadaddario in #SanAndreas and I was so impressed by her chops and presence every day, that I had to have her "rep the squad" in our film. Just wait til you see her - and all our girls - kick ass and protect the bay. #GameOver #BaywatchBabes #CoverYourEyesBoys #BAYWATCH SUMMER 2017.
For the record, this Baywatch is an R-rated comedy from the director of Horrible Bosses, so there's hope. Baywatch was pure cheese, so this is the right approach to take. Yes, I watched Baywatch. For the chicks. I'm a guy. There's hot chicks in swimsuits. Sue me.
Apparently someone named Zac Efron stars as some upstart lifeguard. Whatever.
Baywatch hits theatre May 19, 2017.
