Teenage boys and beach lovers rejoice! After being stuck in development for years, Paramount is finally moving ahead with the big screen adaptation of the '90s classic Baywatch. Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron are already set to appear in the film, and now Deadline has acquired a list of actresses who are rumored to be up for the female lead!
Deadline reports there are seven actresses currently up for the role. They are: Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas, Percy Jackson), Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars), Nina Dobrev (Vampire Diaries), Alexandra Shipp (Straight Outta Compton, X-Men Apocalypse), Shelley Hennig (Teen Wolf), Bianca Santos (The Duff) and Denyse Tontz (Big Time Rush).
There is also the possibility that some of these actresses may also fill other roles in the movie, but either way, news of casting should be announced soon as the director Seth Gordon works towards an early 2016 production start.
