Paramount Pictures and filmmaker Seth Gordon have reportedly come up with a short list of actresses who will test for the female lead in Gordon’s upcoming “Baywatch” movie based on the 1990s TV series.
Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron are already attached to play the male leads in the film with at least one if not more of the seven scoring key roles. They are as follows:
Alexandra Daddario (“San Andreas”), Ashley Benson (“Pretty Little Liars”), Nina Dobrev (“The Vampire Diaries”), Alexandra Shipp (“Straight Outta Compton”), Shelley Hennig (“Teen Wolf”), Bianca Santos (“The Duff)” and Denyse Tontz (“Big Time Rush”).
The story follows a hotshot former Olympian who butts heads with the leader of an elite team of lifeguards. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift wrote the latest draft while Beau Flynn and Ivan Reitman are producing.
Production on the new film is slated to begin next year.
