Now, according to Deadline, Paramount Pictures is in search for the female lead of the reboot.
Deadline came up with a list of 7 actresses who may star in the film, including Alexandra Shipp (“X-Men: Apocalypse“), Nina Dobrev (“The Vampire Diaries“), Alexandra Daddario (“San Andrea“, “True Detective“, Ashley Benson (“Pretty Little Liars“), Denyse Tontz (“Big Time Rush”), Bianca Santos (“Ouija“), and Shelley Hennig (“Unfriended“).
The outlet also mentioned that it is possible for them to expand their search and these young actresses could be playing other roles in the film instead.
In case you didn’t follow the original series way back then, “Baywatch” was an American action drama show that starred David Hasselhoff (the one and only), which ran in its original title and format from 1989 – 1999.
Although it was cancelled after its first season on NBC, it survived after it was put through a setting change and large cast overhaul, and became hugely successful – especially internationally. The show led to a spin-off titled “Baywatch Nights” and a reunion movie, “Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding”.
American film director, Seth Gordon who is known for “Horrible Bosses” and “Identity Thief” will be directing “Baywatch” based on a script written by Mark Swift and Damian Shannon.
It will begin filming in February 2016 and slated for release sometime in 2017.
What do you think of the “Baywatch” reboot? Which female hotties do you think will join the cast? Will David Hasslehoff make a special cameo?
