FIRST LOOK: On set of the ‘Baywatch’ reboot
Mitch and the gang are back.
Riding the wave (pun intended) of ‘90s nostalgia in pop culture, shooting has just started on a Baywatch movie.
Dwayne Johnson, who plays hero Mitch Buchannon (previously played by David Hasselhoff in the campy TV series), posted a photo on Instagram on the sunny Florida set with an equally jacked co-star Zac Efron. “World get ready to have some fun ‘cause the beach will never be the same again,” he wrote.
The flashback flick also stars Priyanka Chopra and Alexandra Daddario while Kelly Rohrbach is C.J. Parker, Pamela Anderson’s former character. “The squad has been working extremely hard so months for these roles,” added Dwayne. And that includes practising running in slo-mo.
