Expect the upcoming Paramount reboot of "Baywatch" to have a lot more weird humor than the original TV show had.
It turns out that "Reno 911!" co-creator and star Robert Ben Garant has signed on to direct the upcoming movie. Vulture has the news, explaining that the intent is to have this "Baywatch" remake do "for that long-running series what 'Reno 911!' did for 'Cops.'"
The project has transformed from an original action-oriented idea to a comedy penned by Jeremy Garelick. "Rescue Me's" Peter Tolan then reworked it, but it's likely that Garant will put his two cents into the final script as well. A recent report claims Justin Timberlake could star in the movie.
Tolan's script has been compared to "Stripes" instead of the Pamela Anderson-starring TV show, which is appropriate because Ivan Reitman is producing the flick. /Film reports that Garelick and Tolan both have admitted »
