Baywatch Looking For Its Cast

Paramount Pictures is ready to dive in with its movie transfer of the global hit TV series Baywatch. It has already been announced that Seth Gordon will be directing the film and that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron are set to play the male leads.

It is now being reported by Deadline that Paramount Pictures has a short list of actresses who will test for the female lead.

The names being reported are: Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas, Percy Jackson), Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars, Elvis & Nixon), Nina Dobrev (Vampire Diaries), Alexandra Shipp (Straight Outta Compton, X-Men Apocalypse), Shelley Hennig (Teen Wolf), Bianca Santos (The Duff) and Denyse Tontz (Big Time Rush).

The film is set to start it’s production in early 2016. So by then we should know more about who from this list was cast, and who not on this list made it on.

Who knows if this is going to be any good.  But at this point I’ll watch anything that has Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in it.  Adding beautiful women to a film never hurt either.
