Earlier this summer, Paramount debuted the first poster for their highly-anticipated Baywatch remake, which helped celebrate Father's Day with Dwayne Johnson and Jon Bass. We haven't seen anything from this movie since then, but today the studio is helping to celebrate the Halloween holiday with three new posters that shows these cast members are "so hot it's scary." It's possible that these posters could be leading into the first trailer's debut in the near future, but that hasn't been confirmed.
The first of two photos, which Paramount debuted on the movie's Twitter account, feature Dwayne Johnson wearing a cape, flanked by Kelly Rohrbach dressed as an angel, and Alexandra Daddario as the devil. The second photo features Zac Efron apparently dressed as Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, since he's holding Halloween buckets filled with gold medals, as both Jon Bass and Ilfenesh Hadera are dressed as cats. The third photo features Priyanka Chopra dressed in a bat costume, looking sexy as the villain.
The story centers on a dedicated lifeguard named Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) who winds up at odds with a cocky newcomer named Matt Brody (Zac Efron). This pair are ultimately forced to work together to stop a criminal conspiracy that is threatening the beach. The cast also includes Hannibal Buress, Jack Kesy, Amin Joseph, Belinda, Izabel Goulart and Charlotte McKinney, but it remains to be seen if we'll get to see their Halloween costumes later today.
The cast also features two stars of the original Baywatch TV series, David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson. Since Dwayne Johnson and Kelly Rohrbach are playing their characters, Mitch Buchannon and C.J. Parker, David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson will not be reprising their iconic roles. Hopefully we'll find out more when the first trailer arrives, as we get closer and closer to the May 19, 2017 release date.
Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) is directing the Baywatch remake 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. Baywatch will go up against a trio of sequels on May 19, 2017, Universal's Annabelle 2, 20th Century Fox's Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul and Open Road Films' The Nut Job 2. Take a look at these photos, and stay tuned for the first trailer from Baywatch.
