THR reports that Paramount finally plans to go ahead with its long-gestating Baywatch movie, with wrestler/franchise-Viagra Dwayne (“The Rock”) Johnson “loosely attached” to star. Sean Anders and John Morris (We’re the Millers) are slated to direct, while up-and-coming comedy writer Justin Malen has been brought on to rework the script. Last we heard the lead role was going to Bill Hader, so we assume the studio decided they wanted someone with a little more experience taking his shirt off.
