Principal photography on Baywatch has completed, and with the movie exactly one year away today, Dwayne Johnson shared a postcard featuring the primary cast members hitting the beach. In addition, Paramount Pictures also released what is the first official photo from the movie. Even though we’ve seen a bunch of pictures from the set, thanks to The Rock and Zac Efron‘s Instagram posts, this is the first one released by the studio.

Back in September of 2014, news surfaced that Dwayne Johnson would star in The Janson Directive, based on the novel of the same name from The Bourne Identity author Robert Ludlum. The project just so happened to be set up at Universal Pictures, the home of the Jason Bourne film franchise, which made the opportunity for a crossover easily possible. Thankfully, Universal isn’t trying to expand the world of Jason Bourne again, but they are looking to create a new cinematic universe.
The Janson Directive will be the first in a series of films based on Robert Ludlum novels that all take place in the same universe, and Universal has already assembled a team to shepherd the new endeavor. Find out more about the Robert Ludlum cinematic universe after the jump. Read More »
There are few combinations of talent as tantalizing as Shane Black and Dwayne Johnson, but the director of Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang and Iron Man 3 made it clear that everyone’s favorite movie star would only be able to star in a big screen adaptation of the pulp adventure series Doc Savage if his increasingly busy schedule allowed him some space. But maybe it’s okay to keep your hopes up, because The Rock has casually hinted that he’s definitely involved in Doc Savage and plans to start shooting it in 2017.

Last night brought the MTV Movie Awards to the televisions of teenagers and people with nothing better to do on a Sunday night. Other than the reveal of a new clip from Captain America: Civil War, an outstanding new trailer for Suicide Squad, and a second teaser trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, memorable moments from the show were few and far between. But the few that were memorable at least brought some laughs. Oh, and some rap too.
Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart (who hosted the show) delivered a rap to pay tribute to the movies of 2015, and they even threw some shade at the Oscars by pointing out they were honoring the movies that viewers had actually seen. In addition, Will Smith was given the MTV equivalent of lifetime achievement known as the Generation Award. But before he was given the honor, The Lonely Island honored him as only they could. Watch both of the MTV Movie Awards rap videos below. Read More »

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.

Shane Black has been trying to make a Doc Savage movie for a long, long time. He wrote the original screenplay in 2009 and jumped in the director’s chair in 2010 and then…not much happened, aside from the usual on-again, off-again shenanigans. But this is obviously a passion project for the director of Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang and Iron Man 3 – many filmmakers would have just turned and fled from a project that has been gestating for this long, but he appears to be all in.
And now, Black has offered an update on this movie: he’s hoping to start filming next year and he wants Dwayne Johnson to star as the legendary pulp icon.
