FRESH from action films Hercules and San Andreas, Dwayne Johnson has signed on to the next comedy from the director of Horrible Bosses 2.
“Edgy, raunchy and hopefully, funny as all hell,” wrote Johnson on his Instagram account to confirm what had been an industry rumour.
“Cue slo mo running on the beach.”
Sean Anders, director of the upcoming Horrible Bosses sequel, is a frequent collaborator with John Morris, who co-wrote Horrible Bosses 2 as well as Anders’ We’re The Millers, Hot Tub Time Machine and Sex Drive.
The Baywatch film, adapting a 1990s television series, is being written by Justin Malen, who became one to watch after his script for an unproduced comedy was voted one of 2011’s best prospects by Hollywood insiders.
As for Johnson, he has in recent times displayed his proficiency for action, comedy, and muscular displays in Hercules and Pain & Gain.
