According to his Instagram account, “Rumors are true….We’re making #BAYWATCH the movie.” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been loosely attached to the project for some time, and this is the first “official” announcement of his involvement.
Not much else is known about the film, other than it has been in various stages of development for a number of years. Often swapping out writers, directors and production teams. More recently, it has landed in the hands of screenwriter, Justin Malen, who is known as an up and comer in the industry. As of now he doesn’t have many movies under his belt, but with Baywatch, a potential Bad Teacher 2 script, and his own Bastards on the accliamed “Blacklist (Yearly list of industry loved scripts that have yet to be produced), he is well on his way. Also of not, the screenwriting team of We’re the Millers are set to direct the Baywatch adaptation.
Dwayne has been one of the busiest men in Hollywood over the past couple years. With Baywatch added to his slate, we can now look forward to Fast & Furious 7, the disaster flick San Andreas, as well as his role as DC villain Black Adam in a Shazaam flick.
