Dwayne Johnson has revealed new Baywatch photos and announced more cast members for the May 19, 2017 release. Joining the Paramount Pictures release are Belinda Peregrín, Izabel Goulart, and Charlotte McKinney!

“Now in real life these ladies never need saving. They’re bad ass, keep their game strong and super cool to work with,” says Johnson. “Buuuuuuuut in our movie, their ‘characters’ need saving and… well… there’s only one man for the job… not Batman, definitely not Superman, not those Avengers. But the one and only big, brown, bald, tattooed guy who drives a jet ski on the ocean and a pick up truck on the land. Tough job my friends, but hell, somebody’s gotta do it.”

Johnson is also joined by Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, Priyanka Chopra, Hannibal Buress and David Hasselhoff, Baywatch offers a big-screen take on the television series that originally premiered on NBC in 1989. The original Baywatch cast included Hasselhoff, Parker Stevenson, Shawn Weatherly, Billy Warlock, Erika Eleniak, Peter Phelps, Brandon Call and Holly Gagnier. The series was initially not a success and was cancelled after a single season. Plans were made, however, to move Baywatch into first-run syndication and, in 1991, Baywatch returned to the airwaves where it continued for a full decade, bringing in new cast members like Yasmine Bleeth and Pamela Anderson. The show also received a short-lived spinoff, Baywatch Hawaii.

Although several writers have been attached to the Baywatch movie, the most recent draft hails from the Friday the 13th pair of Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief director Seth Gordon is helming the new Baywatch film, which is being produced by Dwayne Jonson alongside Michael Berk, Greg Bonann, Beau Flynn, Dany Garcia, Ivan Reitman and Douglas Schwartz.
