Big-screen remake of the popular TV series just started production

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron have unveiled a first look at Paramount’s “Baywatch” movie, posting pictures from the set.

#BAYWATCH Day 1. My character ‘Mitch Buchannon’ just gave @zacefron‘s character ‘Matt Brody’ the all important beach speech about what it means to have manly ‘Alpha balls,'” Johnson captioned a photo he posted to Instagram. “Zac’s ad-libbed responses were brilliant! Talented and great dude. World get ready to have some fun, ’cause the beach will never be the same again. #OnSet #BAYWATCH #Day1#AlphaBalls#NowWhoNeedsMouthToMouth?”

The picture shows Efron and Johnson on a dock wearing lifeguard outfits. Johnson also posted another picture with Ilfenesh Hadera.

“Our 5’11 talented, bad ass smokestack @ilfenator dominating the role of ‘Stephanie Holden’ and some big bald, inked up brown dude giving the gangsta point. #OnSet#Baywatch #BaeWatch couldn’t resist,” he captioned. 

Efron also gave fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse at “Baywatch,” taking to Facebook and posting a picture of him and Johnson in a boat.

“First day protecting the bay is a wrap,” wrote Efron. “Thanks to the big guy (Dwayne). Stay tuned. More adventures lie ahead. ‪#‎speedoready‬ ‪#‎baywatch‬.”

“Baywatch” stars Johnson, Efron, Hadera, Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Hannibal Buress and Kelly Rohrbach. It’s directed by Seth Gordon.

The story follows a veteran lifeguard (Johnson) who is forced to team up with a younger lifeguard (Efron) to save the beach from an environmental disaster. The film is looking at a May 19, 2017 release.
