The cast of the upcoming Baywatch movie are all geared up as production of the film is about to start. On Sunday, the semi-retired professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson cheered on his tanned and toned castmates via social media, sharing an image of a table with the cast reading the script of the film.


The 43-year-old Johnson wrote, “Like a proud papa silverback, just look at this talented cool/hot #Baywatch cast.. @ilfenator, @alexannadaddario, @zacefron, @priyankachopra, @kellyrohrbach, @thejonbass and some tatted up, bald brown man with a large head.”

The Rock also posted that the crew in the photo has been working extremely hard for months for their roles, and the time has come to start filming. And their squad will bring the world some beach fun. The Baywatch cast were laughing as they looked over their scripts. Zac Efron sat next to Johnson sporting a “Bae Watch” sweatshirt.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the Indian film actress Priyanka Chopra, who just got on board in the Baywatch cast last week, won’t be on set for the first day of filming. Chopra will be the film’s villain. Dwayne Johnson will star as an experienced lifeguard who collaborated with newcomer Zac Efron to defend the beach. Ilfenesh Hadera is set to play as The Rock’s love interest.
