Do you remember the lifeguard programme from the ‘90s that everyone was obsessed about? Well, we’re being treated to a remake of the classic show as a film starring Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson. Just when we thought we wouldn’t see the likes of overly-toned bodies running down white sandy beaches on our screens again, Seth Gordon made sure that wouldn’t be the case. Matt (Efron) and Mitch (Johnson) are two mismatched lifeguards who don’t see eye to eye – however, they have to work together to shut down a drug trafficking operation threatening the Bay. The film will have all the old characters – just with new faces. And a cameo from David Hasselhoff, of course.
