Based on a script by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, Paramount’s Baywatch movie is expected to start filming early next year. It’s unknown what the story will be, although let’s be honest, nobody ever watched Baywatch for the compelling plot. It’s said that the film may take a more comedic approach, meaning we could get something along the lines of 21 Jump Street.
