Dwayne Johnson’s star power came to rescue for Baywatch as the movie was thrashed by critics but managed to perform pretty well at the box office. Despite the criticisms, it seems that sequel of the movie is already planned with all original cast members from the first movie is set to return to reprise their roles.
Few days earlier, during an interview with Variety, one of the producers Beau Flynn revealed that the writers are already working on the sequel and revealed that principal cast members will return. Talking about the possible sequel, he said, “We have an amazing story already. We’re bringing back Shannon and Swift who wrote on the first one, and I know Dwayne would be in, I know Zac and all the girls would be. We just have this really cool idea to put them in this whole new world. We would take it overseas.”
While both Dwayne Johnson and Zack Efron’s returns are no brainer, it will be interesting to say the least if Kelly Rohrbach returns. It seems that the producer is happy with her performance and revealed that this series might end up becoming a franchise for her even though Baywatch was her first movie. He said, “Of course! I couldn’t have asked for a better cast on my first film. These guys are awesome. They’re hilarious, they’re loving, they’re generous. We really were a family and I think that comes through on the screen, as well.”
Despite getting thrashed by critics, Baywatch currently holds a 71 percent audience approval score which means fans will be willing to see a sequel in case there is one.
