Just in case you missed it, Baywatch is heading to the big screen, The Socialite finds out more…
Baywatch is set to release an upcoming movie adaptation of the cult TV series of the same name produced by none other than Seth Rogen. The unique cast already has been confirmed to include the likes of Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach to name but a few.
The plot synopsis – two unlikely prospective lifeguards vie for jobs alongside the buff bodies who patrol a beach in California.
The Baywatch movie has gone through the hands of many writers over the years, and Dwayne Johnson isn’t even the first actor we’ve heard about potentially starring in the film. It’s official and he has been confirmed to play the role of The Hoff bringing his unique brand to the franchise. Our guess is fans are looking forward to seeing him strapping on a pair of short red trunks and running slo-mo on the beach.
In perfect casting, Efron will play a young, hotshot Olympian who teams up with Johnson’s character. The cast also includes Alexandra Daddario. The former American Horror Story star will play a character named Summer. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Rookie of the Year Kelly Rohrbach is also suiting up for the movie alongside Ilfenesh Hadera who will play the role of Stef, The Rock’s main love interest. Priyanka Chopra is set to play the story’s main villain.
The film has yet to get an official release date but it’s been rumoured to have a release date for early 2017.
