A BAYWATCH Sequel Is Already In The Works
Splashidonnas, while Baywatch has only been in theaters two days, the plans are already being worked out for the sequel. Variety spoke with producer Beau Flynn at a screening of Baywatch earlier this week. He spoke of plans to bring back Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, along with writers Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, who co-wrote the screenplay for the first film.
“We have an amazing story already… We’re bringing back Shannon and Swift who wrote on the first one, and I know Dwayne would be in, I know Zac and all the girls would be. We just have this really cool idea to put them in this whole new world. We would take it overseas.”
When asked if they would also be interested in returning, Kelly Rohrbach and Alexandra Daddario seemed ready to jump right back into their respective roles. “Of course!” Rohrbach said, who takes on Pamela Anderson’s original role in the action-comedy movie. “I couldn’t have asked for a better cast on my first film. These guys are awesome. They’re hilarious, they’re loving, they’re generous. We really were a family and I think that comes though on the screen, as well.”
Daddario agreed, saying, “Yes! I would love to. I think it’s very cool to be part of a franchise, and I think it helps get other work. It’s fun. You get to travel the world and work with these amazing people, and you get to make people laugh, so I’m completely down for it.”
