The cameras are rolling and it’s time for action. “Baywatch” stars have started shooting for the movie already. Stars Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson were seen channelling their life guard spirits during the shoot in Boca Raton, Florida. Women are certainly going to get weak seeing these stars with their sculpted bodies and lifeguard uniforms.
Gettin' after it extremely hard on this Sunday (as the good Lord would want it;). Training to shoot 3 movies (Baywatch, Fast & Furious 8, and Rampage) in a row for 12months straight – starting TOMORROW with Baywatch. And anytime my coach @hanyrambod yells "hold it" 6x's you can always bet your hard earned dollar that equates to wonderful f*cking pain. #KeepingItHardcore #InTheIronParadise #fst7 #GoodLordINeedBrownies 😂💪🏾💯
Daily Mail informs that both the actors have hit the gym in preparation for their roles. Efron was seen carrying his luggage through the airport on Sunday after arriving in Miami for the shoot. His arms sported eye-popping veins, which were covered up the next day with makeup. Daily Mail elaborates that the men were seen searching for something, while they were on the Baywatch boat with The Rock at the helm.
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?😂
Johnson took to Instagram to post about the shooting day. In his post, he confirmed that his character is Mitch Buchannon and Efron plays Matt Brody. While not all the names of the other characters are known yet, E!News revealed that Kelly Rohrbach will suit up in Pamela Anderson’s iconic red ensemble.
Johnson had earlier posted a photograph of the entire cast at the table doing a read through of the script. “This squad has been working extremely hard for months for these roles — the time has come — we start shooting TOMORROW,” read his caption. “Quantico” actress Priyanka Chopra posted the same photograph on her Instagram wishing good luck to the “Baywatch” team. Her post indicated that she was not present on the first day of the shoot but is scheduled to join them later.
“Baywatch” stars Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra, Kelly Rohrbach, Alexandra Daddario, Jon Bass, Ilfenesh Hadera, and Dwayne Johnson. Entertainment Weekly informs that Johnson’s role, an experienced lifeguard, will team with a newcomer (Efron) to protect his beach. Chopra plays the villainess while Hadera is Johnson’s love interest. Rohrbach plays the role of Pamela Anderson in the original series and Daddario takes on the female lead role of Summer.
