When a dead body washes ashore, the Baywatch team are sucked into a storyline that has them going above and beyond the call of duty to protect the local sun worshippers. Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) is head of a team of the most elite lifeguards in the country, maybe even the planet. But the council is about to cut this beach hero’s funding… With the Baywatch brand in danger, what can Mitch and the team do to salvage this impending wreckage? It’s time to bring in Matt Brody (Zac Efron) – double gold medallist and a bit of a loose cannon.
With Matt now a part of the team, it’s business as usual until a dead body turns up on the shore. Investigating further, all hell is about to break loose for the Baywatch gang, as they go to new lengths to protect the safety of those on the beach.
In this revamp of the much-loved TV show, Dwayne Johnson (Furious 7, Central Intelligence) takes the lead role of Mitch Buchannon, originally famously portrayed be David Hasselhoff, and is joined on screen by Zac Efron (We Are Your Friends, Dirty Grandpa) and Priyanka Chopra.
Known for directing blockbusting comedies, Seth Gordon’s credentials are certainly not in question, having helmed Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief in 2011 and 2013.
