Baywatch is being made into a movie! It is official!
Dwayne Johnson, also known as “The Rock,” confirmed that a Baywatch movie is officially being made with a picture message posted recently on his official Instagram profile on Thursday.
“Rumors are true… we’re making #BAYWATCH the movie. Edgy, raunchy and hopefully, funny as all hell. Cue slo mo running on the beach… #WhoNeedsMouthToMouth”
The rumors that Dwayne Johnson referred to about the Baywatch movie have been circulating for years. Many loyal fans and critics of the popular 1990s television series started to believe that the show being adapted for the big-screen would never happen. However, with a leading A-list actor like Dwayne Johnson at the forefront, it is clear that the ball is finally rolling in the right direction.
Paramount Studios had already announced their plans to move forward with a big-screen adaptation of Baywatch, but only had Dwayne Johnson “loosely attached,” according to Yahoo! Movies. Based on this posted picture and message from Dwayne Johnson’s official Instagram, however, it seems as if that “attachment” is a lot tighter than many people think.
Further reports have shown that Sean Anders and John Morris, the dynamic writing team for such movies as We Are The Millers, have been hired to direct the Baywatch movie with Justin Malen on board to rewrite the drafted script that had already been created.
When people think about the mere concept of a Baywatch movie, they might assume that it is a bad idea in general that should never receive a green light from any major movie studio.
Perhaps that is the reason why writers and directors have been bounced around so many times over the past few years on this project.
However, it seems that the project is moving forward and that,eventually, a Baywatch movie will be featured in a theater near you – whether you like the idea or not.
Based on the comment made by Dwayne Johnson in his picture caption, however, the big-screen version of Baywatch is definitely going to be too hot for television. That, in itself, might draw a large crowd of people to the theaters automatically.
There is still a lot of speculation circulating about this movie that has not been confirmed as of yet. For example, will David Hasselhoff reprise his role? Or is that the role that Dwayne Johnson has his own eyes on for the Baywatch movie?
The world will just have to wait and see. What do you think about the Baywatch movie, though? Does it seem like a great idea or a horrible flop in the making?
