After years stuck in development, things are finally happening regarding the “Baywatch” movie at Paramount Pictures.
THR reports that Dwayne Johnson is loosely attached to star in the film which Sean Anders and John Morris (“Horrible Bosses 2”) will direct. Justin Malen (“Bad Teacher 2”) is set to pen a rewrite of the script.
Malen takes over from previous scribes Jeremy Garelick and Peter Tolan who reportedly had one take involving the team investigating a drug smuggling operation following a series of shark attacks. Whether that is still the case is unsure.
How far along the project is, is also unknown at this point.
