Pamela Anderson is returning to her old stomping grounds — or rather, her jogging-down-the-beach-in-delicious-slow-motion grounds. The former C.J. Parker has officially boarded the cast of the new Baywatch reboot, joining her old co-star David Hasselhoff and new leads Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. See the photographic evidence after the jump.

We’re back in Las Vegas at CinemaCon, the annual gathering of movie theater exhibitors. As you probably know by now, theater owners from around the nation gather to, among other things, watch presentations from all of the major movie studios previewing their film slates for the upcoming year and beyond. The opening night presentation was Paramount Pictures, which came to Vegas to promote Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Ben-Hur, the first teaser trailer for the Ring franchise film Rings, the first footage from Tom Cruise’s sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Robert Zemeckis’ spy thriller Allied, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, and a very early look at Baywatch starring The Rock and Zac Efron.
But the two biggest surprises involved Prisoners/Sicario/Blade Runner 2 filmmaker Denis Villeneuve adaptation of Story Of Your Life and the shocking lack of any Star Trek Beyond preview despite having Simon Pegg and JJ Abrams in town and on stage for an award celebration. The new Villeneuve film seems like a smart science fiction film, think Contact meets Close Encounters of a Third Kind. Hit the jump to watch a video blog reaction talking about all the clips shown at the presentation.

Once upon a time, Baywatch was one of the most popular television shows in the world, which made series star David Hasselhoff one of the most watched actors in the world. Pamela Anderson’s C.J. Parker may have grabbed all of the headlines, but it was Hasselhoff’s Mitch Buchannon who served as the show’s constant center, appearing in every season of the original show before making the jump to the ill-fated Baywatch: Hawaii. He was a known commodity before this series (Knight Rider, anyone?), but the man’s legacy will ultimately revolve around him running shirtless on a beach in extreme slow motion.
And since he probably doesn’t have anything better to do these days, Hasselhoff officially signed on to appear in the upcoming film version of Baywatch a few weeks ago. Now, set pictures have arrived online, showing him standing alongside the one and only Dwayne Johnson. This is what happens when two completely separate pop culture hemispheres collide.

Production is currently underway on Baywatch, the feature comedy adaptation of the popular TV series from the 90s that puts Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in the lead roles. We’ve already gotten a first look at the duo on set and in their lifeguard gear, but both of the stars have been posting photos to Instagram from the set over the past week, showing us even more from the set.
The latest round finally gives us our official first look at Sports Illustrated model Kelly Rohrbach stepping into the red swimsuit once filled out by Pamela Anderson as C.J. Parker. Even though this is a comedic adaptation of the TV series, it’s easy to see that they’ve kept the sex appeal intact as well. Check out the new Baywatch movie photos below. Read More »

Even though Pamela Anderson is still figuring some things out regarding a potential appearance in the forthcoming Baywatch movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, one of the stars of the original TV series isn’t wasting any time locking down a role in the movie.
A David Hasselhoff Baywatch cameo of some sort has been confirmed, and this comes straight from the set of the movie from Dwayne Johnson himself. So there’s no need to hassle The Hoff about whether or not he’ll be part of the movie. Read More »

The cast of the Baywatch movie is already squared away with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron leading the feature comedy adaptation of the popular 90s TV series, and we just got a first look at them on the beach. The two ripped actors are also joined by some lovely ladies, including Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas), Ilfenesh Hadera (Billions), model Kelly Rohrbach (a Sports Illustrated model), and Priyanka Chopra (Quantico). And now one of the stars of the original series might be appearing in the movie as well.
Pamela Anderson was one of the biggest reasons that people tuned in to Baywatch. The series skyrocketed her to fame as one of the most desired women of the 90s, and apparently there are negotiations to get her to make an appearance. But there’s a chance it may not happen. Find out what’s going on with the Pamela Anderson Baywatch cameo below. Read More »

Since the main reason for the popularity of Baywatch back in the 90s was the slow-motion running of Pamela Anderson and the rest of her lifeguard crew, you would think that the first look from the forthcoming film adaptation would employ the same tactics. But this is 2016, and the big stars of the Baywatch movie are Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. They’re not doing any slow-motion running, and they’re not even shirtless. But this Baywatch first look photo will definitely have you wanting them to give you mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, regardless of your sexual preference. Read More »

If you told us a year ago that I’d be interested in a Baywatch movie, I would have given you a serious case of side-eye before tracking down a more trustworthy person to engage in conversation. But here we are – I have no idea what a comedic take on this immensely popular (but oh-so-terrible) drama series starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron looks like, but I know that I’m very curious to find out.
Now, another intriguing performer has joined the cast. Priyanka Chopra is best know in the Western world for her role on ABC’s new series Quantico, but she’s a huge movie star in her native India. Naturally, her next gig involves menacing a bunch of buff and busty life guards as the villain of Baywatch.
