Production has been under way for just under two months on Paramount's Baywatch, and ever since cameras started rolling, Dwayne Johnson has been sharing photos from the set. This week, the actor introduced three new Baywatch Babes, the previously-announced Belinda along with two more cast additions, Izabel Goulart and Charlotte McKinney. Here's what the actor had to say in his Instagram post.
"When making a movie based off of the biggest TV show in the world, you wind up saving lives from all over the globe. Reppin' Mexico: Belinda @belindapop. Reppin' Brazil: Izabel Goulart @iza_goulart. Reppin' the good ol' USA Charlotte McKinney @charlottemckinney. Now in real life these ladies never need saving. They're bad ass, keep their game strong and super cool to work with. Buuuuuuuut in our movie, their "characters" need saving and... well... there's only one man for the job... not Batman, definitely not Superman, not those Avengers. But the one and only big, brown, bald, tattooed guy who drives a jet ski on the ocean and a pick up truck on the land. Tough job my friends, but hell, somebody's gotta do it. #OnSet #GlobalSaves #BAYWATCH MAY 19, 2017 (ok, maybe my boy Chris Pratt @prattprattpratt has the ability to save these lives, but that's it. No one else. F*ck those other guys..."
We reported that Mexican pop star and actress Belinda joined the cast in March, although no details were given for her character. We don't have any additional details about the characters these new casting additions are playing, but they all join a cast that also includes Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, Priyanka Chopra, Hannibal Buress, original Baywatch star David Hasselhoff, Jack Kesy, Amin Joseph and Jon Bass. The most recent photo from the set featured Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and Jon Bass all going topless in between takes.
The story follows a "by-the-book and very serious lifeguard," played by Dwayne Johnson who joins forces with a "young rule-flouting hothead" (Zac Efron) to try and save their beach from environmental destruction by an oil tycoon. Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) is directing from a screenplay most recently written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th). Justin Malen (Bad Teacher 2) wrote the original draft of the script, with Dwayne Johnson also producing alongside Beau Flynn and Ivan Reitman.
Izabel Goulart is best known as a Victoria's Secret model who has also appeared in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. She has also previously appeared in episodes of Two and a Half Men and Entourage, with Baywatch serving as her feature film debut. Charlotte McKinney is also a model who famously appeared on Carl's Jr.'s Super Bowl ad in 2015. She also starred in last year's comedy sequel Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser.
