Nina Dobrev To Play Female Lead Role In ‘Baywatch’ Movie?
A “Baywatch” remake is on the horizon and casting news have resurfaced. The key to a successful reboot is, of course, an awesome cast. So, is Nina Dobrev really going to be the woman who will be running in a red bathing suit? Read On!
We are pretty sure that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron is on board and these two pretty much excites everyone, especially “Baywatch” fans. Now, it’s time to know who the women will be. It turns out that Paramount Pictures already have a short list of possible actresses for the female lead role, as per Deadline, and you are going to love this.
Nina Dobrev, Ashley Benson, Alexandra Daddario, Alexandra Shipp, Bianca Santos, Denyse Tontz and Shelley Henning are being considered for the female lead role. It was kind of surprising that Dobrev and Benson auditioned for the female lead role of “Baywatch” considering that the original movie didn’t make it successfully and these two have popular TV franchises, “The Vampire Diaries” and “Pretty Little Liars.”
However, it also needs to be considered that since Johnson is on-board, he seems to be the lucky charm for movie reboots. Remember how he brought new life into “The Fast and the Furious” franchise? Thanks to Johnson, this “Baywatch” movie reboot may finally be a success.
And we are kind of excited who they pick to don that red swimsuit. Nina Dobrev and Ashley Benson would definitely look great in it but they only need one female lead role. Who do you think will bag the role? Or do you have other female actress bets for the said role? Let us know by posting your comments below!
