Dwayne Johnson has confirmed Zac Efron will play his sidekick in a new Baywatch movie.

Just hours after news of Efron’s interest in the project surfaced on Monday, the Furious 7 star took to Twitter to make the big announcement, and revealed the film won’t be as family friendly as the 1980s TV show.

He wrote, “BIG NEWS: Welcoming my dude @ZacEfron to #BAYWATCH. Our movie will be big, fun and RATED R… Like me when I drink.”

Johnson added, “It’s BIG. Me and bud @ZacEfron been talkin’ bout this one for a long time. And someone get my baby oil.”

Efron confirmed his involvement, responding, “So stoked brother – baby oil for 2 plz (please).”

The film will reportedly start shooting early next year, but who will play C.J Parker, the role that shot Pamela Anderson to fame?

Well, word on the street is that Pammy herself will come back to take on the role, because hey, who can do it better than Pam?
