"Baywatch" Hunk David Chokachi, 47, Resurfaces on the Beach -- See Him Now!

24 August 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

For four glorious years, David Chokachi played blonde hottie lifeguard Cody Madison on "Baywatch" -- famously donning those red shorts and not much else from 1995-1999. The actor romanced both Pam Anderson and Carmen Electra on the series, before starring on the short-lived cult TV series "Witchblade" and a surfing series for The N called "Beyond the Break." It's clear David's love of the waves carries over into his real life, as the 47-year-old star was spotted on the beach over the weekend hitting the surf. Sporting some Hurley surf gear, the father-of-one looked confident as ever (and still pretty damn hot) on his board in Malibu. Chokachi constantly shares beach pics on his Instagram page, including this shirtless shot on the sand. Not too shabby, right? The actor -- who also starred on the VH1 reality show "Confessions of a Teen Idol" in 2009 -- and wife Susan welcomed daughter »

Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson's rebooted Baywatch film will be "badass"

19 August 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

My knowledge of Baywatch falls somewhere between nadda and ziltch; sure, I know of Pamela Anderson, David Hasselhoff, and running down the beach in slow-motion, but that's where it ends. So when Zac Efron appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers and made the claim that his upcoming Baywatch reboot with Dwayne Johnson will be "badass," I wasn't really sure what to think. Was the show... Read More »

Rumour: Kelly Brook wanted for Baywatch movie alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron

18 August 2015 8:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now, this rumour comes from the British tabloid The Daily Star, so chances are it’s a total fabrication, but according to the paper British actress and model Kelly Brook is wanted for the upcoming Baywatch reboot in the role of C.J. Parker, played by Pamela Anderson in the TV series.

““Kelly is one of the shortlisters,” states the Star’s ‘source’. “It is no surprise. She has an almost identical body to a young Pam, looks sensational in a bikini and is a strong actress. Obviously, she would have to go blonde.”

Other names allegedly on the shortlist include Kate Upton and Charlotte McKinney.

The Baywatch reboot is being directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron set to feature in the cast.

Kelly Brook Baywatch movie Kelly Brook Baywatch movie rumours!

Kelly Brook, the British model turned actress who last appeared in the TV show One Big Happy, has apparently been shortlisted to star in the Baywatch movie opposite Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. The news is that the role in question is that of C.J. Parker, which was made famous by Pamela Anderson back in the 1990s.

Anderson has been pretty vocal about her thoughts on a Baywatch remake.

No one appreciates the remakes.

Now, take this with a pinch of salt as the source for the news is British tabloid The Daily Star, but we actually quite like the idea of Brook in the role.

The source had the following to say to the newspaper:

Pamela Anderson skeptical of Baywatch movie

18 August 2015 1:08 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Pamela Anderson isn't convinced the 'Baywatch' movie will be a success. The 48-year-old actress rose to worldwide prominence thanks to her starring role on the drama series, but she is skeptical of plans to make a movie reboot of the show with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Zac Efron. She told TMZ: ''No one appreciates the remakes.'' Although Pamela enjoyed incredible success during her time on the show, she's unsure if it's suited to the big screen. Last week, meanwhile, Zac Efron admitted he was ''stoked'' to have been handed a leading role in the 'Baywatch' movie, admitting he can't wait to appear alongside The Rock. Zac - who also appears alongside Emily Ratajkowski in new music drama film 'We Are Your Friends' - told Bang Showbiz: ''I'm pretty stoked, yeah. I'm very, very excited.'' What's more, Zac said he was keen »

Pam Unhappy About "Baywatch" Film

17 August 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

While Dwayne Johnson may be ecstatic about the action-comedy toned film version of classic 1990s TV series "Baywatch" in which he's set to star, the show's most iconic actress isn't as thrilled with the idea.

Pamela Anderson, who made her name in a red swimsuit on the series, tells TMZ she's not a fan of the big screen reboot in the works saying "No one appreciates the remakes".

The online publication says "Pam goes on to say Baywatch was the best time of her life but the 90's were a 'simpler, sweeter time' for TV, it won't work on the big screen in 2015." She was also asked if the producers asked her to be part of the new movie - apparently they haven't asked her yet according to the report.

In fact, this former bathing suit beauty boldly states that it will suck.

Pamela Anderson Has A Really Strong Opinion On The Baywatch Remake

17 August 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Pamela Anderson and Baywatch are practically synonymous, so when the star of the TV series says a movie remake is a bad idea, we all might want to listen up. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Zac Efron are banding together to star in a new Baywatch movie, and the woman who basically made this property (and slow-motion running) a thing has some thoughts about it.  TMZ caught up with Anderson, who played lifeguard C.J. Parker in the original TV series from the .90s. When asked about what she thought of the new movie, she said:  No one appreciates the remakes. She continued to say that the film wouldn.t work in 2015 because the .90s were "a sweeter, simpler time" for TV. She also praised the Baywatch series as being the best time of her life, but it should be noted that she was not asked to reprise her role »

Pamela Anderson takes a shot at Zac Efron's Baywatch movie: 'No-one appreciates remakes'

17 August 2015 2:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Pamela Anderson has had a little dig at the Baywatch reboot starring Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson.

It turns out that the actress doesn't believe the upcoming movie will be a hit at all.

"No-one appreciates the remakes," Anderson told TMZ.

She stressed that she loved doing Baywatch back in the '90s, but questioned whether the concept would work in today's generation as a movie.

Anderson also confirmed she won't be featuring in the reboot.

Efron recently teased that the new Baywatch will be "big, real and raw", adding that he plans to be hitting the gym with Johnson.

The That Awkward Moment star is playing a young lifeguard who teams up with a veteran (Johnson) to save their beach from an environmental disaster. »

'Baywatch' Movie Is Rated R Says the Rock

11 August 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Baywatch movie is one of those projects that has been kicking around Hollywood forever, looking for just the right team to tackle it head-on. That seems to be happening, with Dwayne Johnson taking the lead for Paramount. Yesterday, it was announced that Zac Efron will be The Rock's co-star in the beachside action comedy. Shortly after word hit the Internet, Dwayne Johnson sent out a few select Tweets of his own, with one big promise to moviegoers.

Yes, The Rock insists that this version of Baywatch will be Rated R, something fans have been hoping for. Some have been hesitant to share their excitement about the project, but now it sounds like Paramount might have a pretty strong franchise contender on its hands. The tone and sense of humor has been compared to 21 Jump Street and its sequel 22 Jump Street. And it sounds like CHiPs, which is being directed, »

Zac Efron to don the red shorts for Dwayne Johnson’s Baywatch movie

11 August 2015 4:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After news last month that director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) had signed on to direct the big-screen adaptation of hit TV show Baywatch, word has arrived from The Hollywood Reporter that Bad Neighbours star Zac Efron is in talks to join the cast.

Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious 7) is headlining the big-screen version of the film, which tells the story of California lifeguards. Efron will co-star as the “young rule-flouting hothead” in the film, which has production set to ramp up ready for a January or Feburary 2016 start. Damien Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th) have written the last version of the script.

Baywatch, created by Michael Berk, Douglas Schwartz, Gregory J. Bonann, ran between 1989-2001, with a cast that included David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson amongst others. The film version is set for release in 2017.

Dwayne Johnson And Zac Efron Hit The Sand For Baywatch

11 August 2015 3:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

JoBlo.com

I’m not one to endorse rebooting kitsch TV properties as movies, but after the success of 21 Jump Street, I must concede that when the talent’s in place, anything’s possible. Still, my generosity only stretches so far, and Baywatch, one of the 90s hollowest TV hits, is pushing the limit.

Paramount don’t seem too care though, as they’re readying Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson (who’ll need some Xxl trunks) to lead their mooted reboot.

NBC

Baywatch is mostly famed for its stars and aesthetic. Following a group of lifeguards, the show made celebrities of David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra, whilst cementing the “slo-mo beach run” as an actual shot-type. TV doesn’t get much cheesier, so you’ve got to suspect this new version will have its tongue firmly planted in cheek. The odd-couple pairing of Johnson and Efron feels very Jump Street, »

Zac Efron headed to Baywatch with Dwayne Johnson

Zac Efron will star in the Baywatch movie

Prepare to see some hot bods on the beach as another muscled heart-throb has joined the cast of the planned Baywatch movie. Joining Dwayne Johnson will be Bad Neighbours star Zac Efron who will don the famous red shorts in the proposed R-rated comedy which is being directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses).

The Hollywood Reporter says that the new version of the hit 1990s TV show ‘centers on a by-the-book and very serious lifeguard (Johnson) who is forced to team up with a young rule-flouting hothead (Efron) in order to save their beach from environmental destruction at the hands of an oil tycoon.’

It will be raunchy, and it will be funny.

Shooting kicks off on the movie in February 2016, with a likely 2017 release. Baywatch will be preceeded by another Bad Neighbours movie in which Efron will return with Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne, »

Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th) wrote the latest draft of the screenplay, which was originally written by Justin Malen.

Seth Gordon Lands Gig to Direct 'Baywatch' Starring Dwayne Johnson

24 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Another day, another remake. This time Paramount is finally putting together an update "big-screen take" on the 90s TV show that originally starred David Hasselhoff & Pamela Anderson. THR reports Paramount has set director Seth Gordon, of Identity Thief, Horrible Bosses, Four Christmases and The King of Kong, to take on the new Baywatch which is also set to star Dwayne Johnson. Johnson has been attached since late last year, and the project has been gestating for at least a decade. We've been hearing about some rumblings and rumors of a Baywatch movie forever, but now it sounds like they're pushing forward with it (another name brand project, of course) with Gordon in negotiations to take the job directing. I'm intrigued. Paramount's new take on a Baywatch movie has been in the works for years. The script has undergone many revisions and the latest iteration is by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. »
