Is Justin Timberlake the new David Hasselhoff? Will he soon don the orange shorts for a slow motion run across a beach? If Paramount have their way you’re damn right he will.
A big screen version of Baywatch has been in development for quite a while now with Ivan Reitman, Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson on board as producers. Twitch has learned that the project – which is set up at Paramount – is now pursuing Justin Timberlake to play the lead.
Should he sign on Timberlake will play a disgraced former Olympic swimmer who tries out for the Baywatch crew. And, yes, before you ask: The writers have already stated publicly that the script has roles for David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, should they want them.
I’d love to see Justin running across the beach in a swimsuit but that’s about it. Baywatch is such a has been project. I doubt he would accept this offer anyway.
