Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had quite the time making Baywatch.
The superstar actor got to show off his comedic chops and flex his muscles at the same time, doing all sorts of stunts and taking on bad guys while bantering with Zac Efron (who got super-jacked for the film with this workout plan), Kelly Rohrbach, Alexandra Daddario, and the rest of the cast.
“We have an amazing story already,” producer Beau Flynn said. “We’re bringing back [the writers] of 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.”
Between the jet ski chases, gunfights with the henchmen of Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra) and ATV rescues on the beach, Johnson, Rohrbach, and Ilfenesh Hadera had plenty of chances to get in on the action.
Check out some of it in the film’s trailer:
All three stars sat down to talk about the film’s badass stunts and vehicles in the video at the very top of the post, while director Seth Gordon revealed a hilarious story about a real-life lifeguard crew using some of the vehicles for the movie for a beach rescue.
It’s time for the “Avengers of the beach” to come together again.
Baywatch comes out on Digital HD August 15, while the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack comes out on August 29.
