February 23rd, 2016 by Marc Comments


Well, there’s no going back now, the Baywatch movie is officially filming!

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, posted the image above of the cast having the final read through before the filming kicked off yesterday: “Like a proud papa silverback, just look at this talented cool/hot Baywatch cast.. Deb Kawi, Alexandra Daddario, Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass and some tatted up, bald brown man with a large head,” Johnson wrote.

“This squad has been working extremely hard for months for these roles – the time has come – we start shooting TOMORROW. Let’s roll and bring the world some beach fun.”

And begin they did… check out the first three images posted by Johnson and co-star Zac Efron taken in Boca Raton, Florida.

Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Theft) is directing the film, based on a script by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
