Johnson stars as Mitch Buchannon, a character popularized by David Hasselhoff in the original film. Mitch is the leader of the Baywatch lifeguard collective and an idol to his team, with one seen constructing a sand statute dedicated to him. Things change when Efron’s Matt Brody, a former Olympian, is hired to help public image of the team’s brand. Mitch and Matt begrudgingly get along to fight crime on the beach.
Baywatch will hit theaters on May 26th. Alex Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass and Ilfenesh Hadera star alongside Efron, Johnson and Chopra in the film, and original stars Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson will make appearances.
