Dwayne Johnson Loosely Attached to Orange Buoy Thing of 'Baywatch'

October 3, 2014


Following the path of David Hasselhoff, Dwayne Johnson may ascend from car-based entertainment to the heights of a drama-filled lifeguard tower. THR reports that Johnson is "loosely attached" to bring his aptly massive chest to Baywatch, Paramount's comedy remake of the '90s series that made lifeguards of Playboy models and Charles in Charge co-stars alike.

Notably, The Rock is a fairly different from Bill Hader, who was previously said to be in line to play the new Mitch Buchanan, but it seems that the switch-up is simply falling in line with the studio's newly bulked-up, "more is better" approach to the film. Likewise, there's said to be yet another writer now re-working the script, and while Robert Ben Garant was formerly set to direct, now there are two directors attached to this thing: That's My Boy and Horrible Bosses 2 director Sean Anders and frequent co-writer John Morris, the newly-added boobs that may yet make this work.
