Though silver-screen musicals aren’t too uncommon in and of themselves, “The Greatest Showman” purports to be Hollywood’s first not based on an existing property since 1992’s “Newsies.” Michael Arndt — who won an Academy Award for his “Little Miss Sunshine” screenplay and has also written or co-written “Toy Story 3,” “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and “The Force Awakens” — is on script duty.

How A Young Leonardo DiCaprio Almost Hit The Beach For ‘Baywatch’

5 July 2016 12:32 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario and Dwayne Johnson have snagged leads in the upcoming “Baywatch” movie, but an original casting idea for the TV series would have seen an even bigger star slip into one of those famous red swimsuits.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, original “Baywatch” producers Michael Berk and Douglas Schwartz spilled a particularly juicy set secret: A young Leonardo DiCaprio was almost cast as David Hasselhoff’s son.

“We actually had DiCaprio ready to be cast,” Berk told THR, “But David thought he was too old to play his son.”

According to Schwartz, Hasselhoff thought DiCaprio’s casting would make him look older. “He had a lot of concerns of that type,” Schwartz admitted. Jeremy Jackson, six years Leo’s junior, was cast instead.

4 July 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though his Instagram feed has acted as a hub for all things Fast 8 in recent weeks, Dwayne Johnson has shared an appropriately patriotic shot of the Baywatch crew to coincide with the July 4 celebrations in the States.

There’s also room for Priyanka Chopra’s chief villain. An archetypal suit, the lifeguards will be going toe-to-toe with a greedy oil tycoon hellbent on exploiting the Bay for corporate interests. Enter The Rock and Co, henceforth known as the Baywatch family.

Nicole Eggert's appearance changed during the filming of Baywatch - and it might have been because of costar Pamela Anderson. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Baywatch's original producers, Michael Berk and Douglas Schwartz, opened up about the show - which will soon hit the big screen. "[Nicole Eggert] felt a little bit competitive with Pam," Berk told the magazine. "She had a beautiful athletic body but didn't have big boobs at all. Maybe she was feeling a little bit of pressure.

If you felt some type of way seeing these beauties run along the beach in a red bathing suit on Baywatch, you weren't alone. In fact, ahead of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's reboot of the hit TV show, producers Michael Berk and Douglas Schwartz talked to The Hollywood Reporter to spill some unknown facts about what happened behind the scenes of the series, and it seems like there was a lot of competition between the cast members.

Baywatch Almost Derailed Leonardo DiCaprio's Movie Career

1 July 2016 2:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Next year, the iconic TV series Baywatch makes the transition to the big screen with a new reboot starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. The original series is among the most successful of all time, running for 11 seasons between 1989 and 2001, turning stars Pamela Anderson and the rest of the cast into household names. A new retrospective on the original series reveals quite an interesting revelation, that Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio was almost cast on the show when he was just a teenager.

Before he went on to make Oscar winning blockbusters, Leonardo DiCaprio's career began on the small screen, with roles on the 1990 TV series Parenthood and a recurring arc on Growing Pains. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that, at just 15 years of age, the actor auditioned for the role of Mitch Buchannon's (David Hasselhoff) son, Hobie Buchannon, but David Hasselhoff himself "nixed" the casting.

How a 15-Year-Old Leonardo DiCaprio Almost Ended Up on 'Baywatch,' and 6 Other Show Secrets

1 July 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Sure, it's still a year away from the Dwayne Johnson-Zac Efron big-screen adaptation of Baywatch, and even longer before the Baywatch musical debuts on London's West End (sometime in 2018). But it's summer, so what better time to revisit the most successful beach-set drama about lifeguards ever to bounce and jiggle across the small screen? At its peak in the mid 1990s, the show — with David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson squeezed into red swim suits — drew a weekly audience of 1.1 billion viewers in 158 countries, winning a spot in the Guinness Book of

David Hasselhoff: ‘Knight Rider has come true – driverless cars, scanners and blueprints’

30 June 2016 5:21 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Baywatch star might be used to being ferried about by talking cars – but nothing could prepare him for a night out in Blackpool

Hi, David. Are you a fan of (now defunct) Kansas City instrumental prog-rock band, David Hasselhoff on Acid?

I’m a big fan. My attorneys said: “This is horrible.” I had a listen and said: “No, it’s fucking great.” I used to host a TV show in Sweden called David Hasselhoff: En Svensk Talk Show. It was a proper talk show with a band and everything. I’d sing a lot of Ace of Bass and Roxette songs. We had a competition, looking for bands to cover my song Looking for Freedom (1). One band came back with this heavy metal version; it was awesome. Then I got invited to close this rock festival in Austria, in front of 100,000 people. I had to come out after Iron Maiden. »

David Hasselhoff and Ex Pamela Agree to Lower Spousal Support

23 June 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

David Hasselhoff can say goodbye to more than half of his $21,000-a-month alimony bill. The actor and his ex-wife Pamela Bach have reached an agreement regarding his spousal support. According to the court documents obtained by People, Hasselhoff will now pay Bach $10,000 a month in alimony, almost half of what he paid her previously. The Baywatch actor filed legal documents in May to either completely cut off or significantly reduce spousal support to his ex-wife, whom he divorced after 16 years of marriage in 2006.

Baywatch Movie Poster Wants You to Rock Your Dad Bod

20 June 2016 1:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

You'd think slipping into a red bathing suit for the new Baywatch movie would be a very simple task. But, it certainly wasn't. In the upcoming big screen adaptation of the lifeguard television series, Kelly Rohrbach stars as C.J. Parker, a role first played by Pamela Anderson on TV, opposite co-stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Zac Efron. I caught up with Rohrbach last night at the Grand Wailea resort during the Maui Film Festival, where she and Everybody Wants Some!!'s Wyatt Russell were honored with this year's Rising Star Awards. "It was a process," Rohrbach said of finding the right swimsuit. "The first time. we have retailored it and restructured it 10 »

Movies and Island Setting Lift the Spirit at Maui Film Festival

15 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Among the world’s film festivals, Maui is unique because of its setting, scheduling and, most important, its philosophy.

Fest director and founder Barry Rivers only books films that offer positive messages and insights. “There’s enough darkness surrounding us all,” he tells Variety. “There is acrimony in the culture and among nations, and people are always being confronted with problems but no easy solutions. So we want to show the world as it might be.”

It’s not a lineup of Candyland films, he stresses; some tackle subjects that are challenging and gritty, but the endings are uplifting and transformative. He says they are films “at the intersection of smart and heart.”

This year’s fest will offer about 30 features and 20 shorts (out of 1,000 submissions), but unlike many sprocket operas, each film will screen only once in its five-day stretch.

Many of the screenings will occur at the Celestial Cinema, an outdoor venue where 2,000 guests sit on the grass. Attire during the entire festival is “resort wear,” meaning nice but not formal. There are no black-tie events in Maui.

Rivers says he has a luxury when booking films: He’s not competing with other festivals for world premieres, so he is free to book movies that he thinks the audiences will like. There is an industry presence, but no market. “For me, it’s just about assembling the best films possible.”

Every year, the fest salutes stars, with the 2016 lineup including Bryan Cranston and Viola Davis.

Honorees

Every year the fest honors actors and filmmakers, with each salute including a Q&A and a presentation of the award. The recipients of the Navigator Award for distinguished work are Cranston and Davis. Michael B. Jordan, star of “Fruitvale Station” and “Creed,” will be handed the Rainmaker Award, given to “film artists who profoundly affect their projects, both on and off screen.” Kelly Rohrbach and Wyatt Russell will be honored with Rising Star Awards. Rohrbach will appear in Paramount’s bigscreen “Baywatch”; Russell stars in Richard Linklater’s “Everybody Wants Some.”

Screenings

The fest will offer “Captain Fantastic,” the Matt Ross-directed drama that stars Viggo Mortensen as the unorthodox patriarch of six kids. The event will take place at the Celestial Cinema, aka the Wailea Golf Course Amphitheatre. Other screenings will be held at various sites, including the Castle Theatre in the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.

June 18 offers a free community event known as the Toes-in-the-Sand screening. It’s a showcase for Hawaii filmmakers and this year spotlights four: “God Is a Dog,” “The Roots of ‘Ulu,” “Aina: That Which Feeds Us” and “Sam Choy’s Poke to the Max.” The event takes place at the Wailea Beach by the Four Seasons. “It’s our gift to Maui,” Rivers says. “Every year the quality of Hawaiian filmmaking has increased.”

There are also under-12 free screenings:

June 16 at the Celestial Cinema: “Mad Dogs” followed by “Saltwater Buddha” at 8 p.m., and “It Ain’t Pretty” followed by “One Way: A Journey to This Moment” at 10 p.m.

At 1 p.m. June 18 at the indoor Castle Theater: “Boy in the World”

June 19 at the Celestial will be New Zealand’s “Hunt for the Wilderpeople,” preceded by “Live Monumental” at 8 p.m. Then at 10 p.m. are “Gerry Lopez: The More Things Change,” followed by “Chapter One” and “Kanaloa: Voyage Into the Depths.”

Tasty Options

In addition to the screenings, there are four main social events, and all include a double feature.

From 5 to 7 p.m. June 15 is the Taste of Summer opening-night party at Molokini Gardens. The evening features samples of local specialties ranging from an oyster bar to taco station and Kona crab cakes to coconut cakes.

From 9 to 11 p.m. June 17 will be Taste of Chocolate at the Four Seasons. Offerings include savory or sweet pizzas, with toppings such as beef, short ribs, Nutella, or M&Ms. Keeping with the theme, there will be chocolate fountains, truffles, and chocolate panacotta.

From 4:30 to 7 p.m. June 18 is Taste of Wailea at the Wailea Gold & Emerald Golf Course. The event is considered the crown jewel of the festival, with about a dozen restaurants participating. They offer everything from ravioli to roasted pork belly, and novelties such as passion fruit ceviche and tomato-watermelon gazpacho.

There is also a gala, which is a VIP soiree and celebration of honorees, from 10 p.m. to midnight June 16 at Spago.

(Pictured above: “Captain Fantastic,” starring Viggo Mortensen, will screen in Maui’s Celestial Cinema)

Sharknado 4 Trailer Has Strippers Fighting Sharks in Las Vegas

1 June 2016 5:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After invading both the West and East Coasts in the first three movies, the Sharknado sensation is heading to the Las Vegas desert in Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. Last month, Syfy took advantage of Star Wars Day (May 4) to debut a new, yet very familiar poster for this sequel, which spoofed last year's blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens. With just under two months left until this sequel debuts, the network has debuted a new trailer, which shows how some of Sin City's finest strippers and Elvis impersonators defend themselves from this onslaught of sharks.

Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and April Wexler (Tara Reid) reprise their roles from the first three Sharknado movies, with Gary Busey signing on to play April's father. Sharknado: The 4th Awakens takes place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in last summer's Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!. Fin (Ziering »
