Zac Efron – who filmed “Neighbors 2” and “Dirty Grandpa” in Georgia and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – who was here for “Furious 7” – are headed back our way. This time they’re bound for the coast, for a big-screen adaptation of the “Baywatch” series. The movie will be set in California but will film here thanks to Georgia’s film-friendly tax policies.
The plot is pretty simple. Per imdb: “Two unlikely prospective lifeguards vie for jobs alongside the buff bodies who patrol a beach in California.”
The Savannah Morning News reports “Baywatch” will film in March and April 2016.
