Baywatch Movie in the Works

Mitch and CJ are headed back to the beach...and the big screen. Baywatch, the hit '90s TV show that made Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff a household name, is being developed into a film.

Variety reports that Paramount Pictures has hired Jeremy Garelick to rewrite and direct the new movie into a comedy film.

He told Variety, "It felt like the template to do a movie that was similar to 'Stripes' and 'Police Academy,' the comedies I loved growing up. Rather than trying to pitch the tone, I figured it would be easier to write the first act to convey who these characters were."

Sounds like it's either going to be hilarious or a big bust. A bunch of hot people in tiny bathing suits is usually successful, so we'll see if this can deliver. What are your thoughts? Would you want to see a Baywatch remake?
