Dwayne Johnson has shared a new photo of the full Baywatch team
Dwayne Johnson is back on social media today, sharing via Facebook a new photo of the Baywatch team as they’ll be featured in next year’s comedy feature from Paramount Pictures. From left to right, the Baywatch team includes Kelly Rohrbach, Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera, Johnson himself, Zac Efron and Jon Bass.

Also starring Priyanka Chopra and Hannibal Buress, Baywatch offers a big-screen take on the television series that originally premiered on NBC in 1989. The original Baywatch cast included David Hasselhoff, Parker Stevenson, Shawn Weatherly, Billy Warlock, Erika Eleniak, Peter Phelps, Brandon Call and Holly Gagnier. The series was initially not a success and was cancelled after a single season. Plans were made, however, to move Baywatch into first-run syndication and, in 1991, Baywatch returned to the airwaves where it continued for a full decade, bringing in new cast members like Yasmine Bleeth and Pamela Anderson. The show also received a short-lived spinoff, Baywatch Hawaii.
“We are the reason you feel safe in the water,” Johnson writes alongside the Baywatch team photo. “We are the reason you feel safe on the sand. We are also literally running iconically in slo-motion because apparently that makes everyone’s kibbles and bits look sexy. WE ARE Baywatch Movie.”
Although several writers have been attached to the Baywatch movie, the most recent draft hails from the Friday the 13th pair of Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief director Seth Gordon is helming the new Baywatch film, which is being produced by Dwayne Johnson alongside Michael Berk, Greg Bonann, Beau Flynn, Dany Garcia, Ivan Reitman and Douglas Schwartz.
Baywatch hits the big screen May 19, 2017.
