Screenwriters Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka have signed on to write the screenplay for Paramount's feature adaptation of the 1990's NBC lifeguard action drama series Baywatch, according to Risky Business.

The project is based on the 1990s NBC television series about a bunch of lifeguards patrolling a California beach, starring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, among others. The series then exploded into worldwide syndication.

The studio is looking to push the project forward to a summer 2011 release.
