This is not a joke. Hollywood has been trying to make a Baywatch movie for a very long time. The idea is to make it a buddy comedy that sort of makes fun of the original Baywatch because it’s a show no one has thought to make fun of yet.
The project has gone through a bunch of scripts and directors, but according to THR, it now has something solid. Horrible Bosses and King of Kong director Seth Gordon is currently negotiating to get the job. He's going to tell all the people how to watch the bay.
Maybe that doesn’t interest you. Perhaps you don’t care about Baywatch. Or you could be one of those people who think the original show was perfect and shouldn’t be disgraced with an update. But I’m sure we can all agree that any movie starring The Rock is a good idea, right? Well, Baywatch stars The Rock. Go change your pants.
Baywatch won’t shoot until early next year, so there’s still time for the project to go through a few more directors. Hopefully The Rock stays on regardless.
