The Rock & Zac Efron To Star In New ‘Baywatch’ Movie

Paramount’s reboot of beloved 90s TV show “Baywatch” seems to finally be off the ground, with Zac Efron currently deep into negotiations to star beside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The story will focus on the development of the serious and by-the-book lifeguard (Johnson) who is forced to team with his polar opposite (Efron) in order to save their beach from an evil oil tycoon.

Production looks set to begin in February of 2016, with Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief director Seth Gordon set to direct the picture. The movie will be produced by Beau Flynn and Ivan Reitman, with Damian Shannon and Mark Swift being accredited with the most recent draft of the script.
