Yesterday was Father's Day, with dads all around the world being celebrated for raising their kids the right way. Dwayne Johnson decided to get in the Father's Day spirit by unveiling a new poster for his highly-anticipated reboot of Baywatch. The Rock is joined by co-star Jon Bass on this poster, which encourages father's everywhere to rock their "dad bods."
As you can see in this post from Dwayne Johnson's Twitter, not every "dad bod" is not the same. Dwayne Johnson is strikingly chiseled, as usual, while Jon Bass rocks a more traditional "dad bod". We still don't know exactly who Jon Bass is playing yet, but it has been confirmed that Dwayne Johnson is playing Mitch Buchannon, a role originally portrayed by David Hasselhoff in the iconic Baywatch TV series.
Dwayne Johnson and Jon Bass will be joined by Zac Efron as Matt Brody, a cocky newcomer who is forced to work with Buchannon to stop a criminal conspiracy that is threatening the beach. The rest of the cast includes Alexandra Daddario (Summer Quinn), Kelly Rohrbach (CJ Parker), Ilfenesh Hadera (Stephanie Holden) and Priyanka Chopra (Victoria Leeds), with Hannibal Buress, Jack Kesy and Amin Joseph playing unspecified characters. Paramount has issued a May 19, 2017 release date for Baywaytch, which will go up against Annabelle 2 and The Nut Job 2.
Original Baywatch stars David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson have also joined the cast as well, although little is known about their characters. 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. Production wrapped in May, with a new cast photo being revealed.
It isn't known when the first trailer may surface, but it's possible that Dwayne Johnson and the cast may descend upon Comic Con next month to unveil the first footage. Given how connected Dwayne Johnson is with his fans on social media, don't be surprised if the actor himself announces the Baywatch Comic Con plans in the near future. Until then, check out this new Baywatch poster below.
