The 1990s popular television series Baywatch that focuses on attractive lifeguards who patrol a recreational beach is going to have its own movie! Although David Hasselhoff will not be reprising his role as Mitch Buchannon, Zac Efron has stepped in to join the cast. He will star opposite Dwayne Johnson, while Seth Rogen is directing the film. He further confirms the news with a tweet.

We bet the flick will be lots of fun with Zac and Seth working together again (remember Neighbours?). And with Zac's beach bod, we have high hopes for this remake. Production is scheduled to start in early 2016.
