Do We Care About This New BAYWATCH Movie?

This is how I imagine all scenes with
Dwayne Johnson to look like
The Rock, er, I mean Dwayne Johnson has been tweeting incessantly about this new BAYWATCH reboot (bless his heart). I mean, are there really folks out there excited about this? Well, I'm sure straight men are waiting impatiently to see more half naked women running in slow motion on a beach for two hours. but I'm not.

Anyway, here we are. Paramount Pictures has just announced that the film, which also stars Zac Efron, has begun principal photography and production will take place in Miami and Savannah (of course). Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) is directing the film from a screenplay by Damian Shannon (Freddy vs. Jason), Mark Swift (Freddy vs. Jason) and Barry Schwartz. In other words, this seems super generic.

But wait, Priyanka Chopra (Quantico) and Ilfenesh Hadera (Billions, Chi-Raq) are among the cast. Which begs the questions 1) Why would they do this? and 2) Does this mean I now have to care about this movie? Ugh, what a dilemma.

Here's the plot:

“BAYWATCH” follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Johnson) as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Efron). Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.

Yes, of course it's basic. 

BAYWATCH will be released on May 19, 2017
