Open Casting in Savannah for “Baywatch” Movie
Talent in the Savannah Georgia area can start working on their beach bodies because the “Baywatch” movie is set to begin filming this coming spring 2016.
The movie’s casting directors at Rose Locke (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Mockingjay, Furious 7, Divergent Series, Allegiant, Bad Grandpa ,) will be holding an open casting call at the end of the month in Savannah. The movie needs paid extras of all all types ages 18+ to work on the set. They are especially in need of people that look pretty good in a bathing suit.
The TV show is being made into a feature film. The “Baywatch” remake is actually a comedy which will star Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson. Dwayne Johnson plays a lifeguard who must team up with a younger lifeguard , Zac Efron. Together the pair will save the beach. The original “Baywatch” TV show was a prime time soap that aired on NBC during the 90s. The popular TV series starred David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, Carmen Electra, Yasmine Bleeth and many others. The original ‘Baywatch” series aired for over a decade and sparked a spin-off series called “Baywatch Nights” as well as a feature length film.
Efron and Johnson have expressed their excitement about the project. In an ET interview, Johnson stated “The cool thing about this is we want to make a movie that’s big, fun, epic, and all the things that you want,” he added. “We want to make sure that it has edge and badass action and dirty jokes.” Efron mentioned that the “Baywatch” movie will be R-rated and “badass,” quite different from the 90s TV series that inspired the film. According to IMDB, Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) is set to direct the comedy which begins filming in early 2016.
