Get your red swimsuits ready and start practicing your mouth-to-mouth because Baywatch is back! And news on the block is that a brand new babe is joining the project...

It has been announced that none other than Zac Efron is set to make the reboot bigger and buffer. And this is absolutely awesome because seeing the ex-High School Musical sweetheart transform into a swimming-trunk clad Adonis with washboard abs, prancing up and down the beaches of California in gloriously seductive slow-mo, would be a dream come true.

Zac will be joining an even more ripped Dwayne Johnson, "The Rock," who is likely to be running in a similar slew of shirtless montages as he steps into the iconic role of David Hasselhoff.

And honestly, even if you're not a big fan of Efron and Johnson's acting, all you'll really need to bring to the cinema anyway are your eyes to acknowledge that these bodies are a work of art.

Particularly if baby oil on said bodies will be involved. Just look at Dwayne's most recent post:

To which Zac replied:

Ummm... yes please!

What else do we know about the production?

The director of Horrible Bosses, Seth Gordon, is attached to direct the spectacle, set to be a comedy, which follows a story about a very serious lifeguard (Johnson) forced to team up with a young risk-taking hothead (Efron).

The result will naturally be a delicious double-act that will endeavor to save the precious Baywatch beach from environmental destruction at the hands of a money-grabbing oil tycoon.

Regardless of whether any of the original stars make a brief cameo appearance, the reboot seems like it will be a lot of fun and we are undoubtedly in for some phenomenal entertainment. Because, let's be real, no matter how much we mocked and parodied the Baywatch of the '90s, it was legendary and anything it touches WILL turn to gold.

And on that note, I leave you with a super sexy fan-made montage of Pamela Anderson doing her thing:
