Seven female stars are reportedly up to join the Baywatch cast. Find out who’s in the running below!
It was more than a year ago that leading man Dwayne Johnson took to social media to announce his involvement in Paramount Pictures’ Baywatch movie with a photo of himself atop a jet ski. Since then, the Baywatch cast has added Zac Efron and locked director Seth Gordon (The King of Kong, Horrible Bosses). Today, Deadline has an update on the film, bringing word that a number female stars are now up for the comedy feature. The outlet notes that there is some uncertainty regarding the number of open parts. As such, it’s possible that several of the actresses listed below could end up part of the Baywatch cast.
As you can see in the gallery viewer below, the talent included on the Baywatch cast short list includes Ashley Benson (“Pretty Little Liars,” Spring Breakers), Alexandra Daddario (who just worked with Johnson in San Andreas), Nina Dobrev (“The Vampire Diaries,” The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Shelley Hennig (“Teen Wolf,” Unfriended), Bianca Santos (The DUFF, Ouija), Alexandra Shipp (who will be playing Storm in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse) and Denyse Tontz (“Big Time Rush,” “Dog with a Blog”).
Although several writers have been attached to Baywatch, the most recent draft hails from the Friday the 13th pair of Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. Earlier reports suggested that the film will offer a comedy-heavy take that has little to do with the original series. Parts were reportedly written, however, for both Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff to reprise their roles. Whether or not that remains the plan is, at the moment, unconfirmed. As always, check back for updates as they become available.
Which of these stars would you like to see become part of the Baywatch cast? Is there anyone else who you think should be in the running? Let us know in the comments below!
