They’ll be ready as Dwayne Johnson posted the first set photo from Baywatch to his Instagram account.
EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: #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”. 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?😂
As Johnson pointed out, he plays Mitch, the part originally portrayed by David Hasslehoff while Zac Efron assumes the role of David Charvet‘s Matt Brody. The film will feature an number of characters from the internationally successful television series recast with the likes of Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach, among others.
The film is scheduled for a May 19th, 2017 release.
