The 48-year-old made her feelings on the subject pretty clear when questioned about the film, which Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will star in.
In an interview with TMZ, Anderson stated that “No one appreciates the remakes” referring to the confirmed plans of doing a movie version of the old TV show.
– Cover Media picLOS ANGELES, August 17 – Just when we thought news of a “Baywatch” reboot with Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson couldn’t get any better, Pamela Anderson has to prove us wrong!
The upcoming movie’s stars have in fact indicated that the future Baywatch would focus more on action and less on hot women running in swimsuits.
“It’s going to be R-rated, and it’s going to be badass”, Zac told Reuters. “‘I think we’re going to kind of reinvent it in a big way”.
Dwayne, meanwhile, did acknowledge the need to take “great care” when rebooting a TV show that was beloved around the world.
Well, Pamela Anderson, who starred on the original TV series and who basically owes her entire career to it, is not impressed.
‘Who’s going to play C.J.?’ The Rock wondered on the weekend. “Also has, really dirty, rated-R humor, which is right in my wheelhouse”. “They all want to be C.J”.
“The cool thing about this is we want to make a movie that’s big, fun, epic, and all the things that you want”, Dwayne explained.
He also hinted that agents of some of the most gorgeous current models and actresses have expressed their desire to be a part of “Baywatch” movie as one of the female lifeguards, the report added.
