Baywatch The Movie Going Ahead?????


Whoah, whoah, whoah... Wait a goddamn minute... are you serious? A BAYWATCH movie actually being greenlit?

Stretch Armstrong and TJ Hooker were bad enough, but Baywatch? This should not be real news, this should be April the 1st news were people actually find it funny... this is not funny.

It seems that after the new president of Paramount took over recently he stated that a movie that he wanted fast tracked into production would be Baywatch. An original script was written for this back in 2005, focusing on a serious action movie featuring bronzed muscle men and silicone breasted females running in slow motion (joking about the slow motion), but it seems that a re-write has been actioned and the new movie will now be a comedy in the Police Academy vein. The new theme has two new unlikely lifeguard candidates who have to try to fit in with the buff bodies that were so prevalent in the old 90's series... No, I won't stand for it!!!

As stated on a few other sites: Baywatch should remain a memory of the 90's camp and ludicrous TV and should not be resurrected in this way. Let the old dog die off gracefully... please! Don't get me wrong, I watched Baywatch religiously back in the day, I had a serious obsession on Erika Eleniak and then Pamela Anderson, and I honestly did like the series. Doing this will tarnish those sweet sweet memories I have... ;)

Again, just for fun, here are two of the opening sequences for the old series. The first from season 1 with Erika and co and then the later series with Pamela, Yasmine, Gina-lee etc and the more familiar music.
