Alexandra Daddario Previews The Ladies Of Baywatch

The Baywatch adaptation may not be hitting theatres until next summer, but its social media-savvy cast is making waves as production continues, taking to Instagram with shots highlighting some of the film’s action sequences as well as the bevy of Baywatch babes rearing up to take the beach by storm.

The movie, directed by Horrible Bosses‘ Seth Gordon, has an almost unfair amount of things going for it: a stated desire to land an R-rating, Dwayne Johnson’s musclebound machismo, a beefed-up Zac Efron, True Detective actress Alexandra Daddario, model Kelly Rohrbach, Billions‘ Ilfenesh Hadera, and even a decent premise.


The pic finds Johnson’s by-the-books lifeguard Mitch running up against the more free-spirited lifeguard Matt, competing for spots on the beach, before they’re forced to team up in order to save their sandy workplace from an oil tycoon.

Priyanka Chopra (Quantico), Jack Kesy, Amin Joseph, and (of course) David Hasselhoff are also taking on roles in the Baywatch movie, though Hasselhoff’s part will likely take the form of a glorified cameo.

Baywatch opens May 19, 2017.
