In the words of Juvenile, MOVE IT SLOW MOTION FOR ME because that’s right- Baywatch is back. babes, bikini’s, beaches and a lot of slow motion running is coming back to the big screen. And why wouldn’t TCD be all about it?
As far as the babes, Zac Efron and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson have committed to the remake film that is expected to start shooting at the beginning of 2016. THE ROCK? ZAC EFRON? I know try not to faint…
Let’s just say that it’s highly possible that around filming time I may have a near death drowning experience where I need a lifeguard to save me. And somehow I feel like I won’t be alone?
Efron told Reuters,
“It’s going to be R-rated and it’s going to be badass.” Efron went on to say, ”I think we’re going like pretty big with it and I don’t think it’s going to be much like the old Baywatch to be honest. I think we’re going to kind of reinvent it in a big way, and he [Johnson] has big plans for it. I know he’s very ambitious.”
Johnson shared his excitement on Instagram with an oh-so glorious picture of the two wearing their bare-skin washboard abs.
Not to mention that he left us hanging on a real cliff hanger in his caption:
“[…] and one more thing.. just wait ’til you see who we cast for our girls…”
OH EM GEE – WHO IS GOING TO BE OUR NEW PAMELA ANDERSON?
Apparently, Pam isn’t too thrilled on the remake idea. When asked about the new movie, she has commented “no one appreciates the remakes.” She believes that there ’90s were a “simpler, sweeter time” for television, and that the remake won’t work in today’s modern day and era.
Maybe Pam is a little bitter since she didn’t get asked to be a part of the remake. Perhaps she is scared someone will top her original performance?
Guess we’ll just have to find out for ourselves who will be the new BAE of Baywatch….
Until then, I’ll be the swimmer who cried wolf. HELP Mr. Lifeguards! Save me! Mouth to mouth resuscitation!
