Slashfilm?reports that Baywatch stars Johnson as serious-minded, by-the-book lifeguard who?s forced to join forces with a young hothead (Efron) in order to save an oil tycoon from wreaking environmental devastation on their beach. It aims to be what the 21 Jump Street movie was to the 21 Jump Street TV series ? an action comedy that lovingly pokes fun at the original.
Seth Gordon is directing from a script most recently reworked by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. Beau Flynn and Ivan Reitman are producing. Shooting on Baywatch is expected to begin in early 2016.
The show Baywatch was about cadre of attractive lifeguards who patrol a crowded recreational beach.
