UPDATE: Thespian Pamela Anderson To Bouyantly Bounce About in BAYWATCH THE MOVIE???

Published at: Feb. 9, 2006, 5:50 a.m. CST

Hey Folks - Harry here... Eli Roth contacted me about the below story. Apparently it originated out of the British tabloid, THE EXPRESS - and has fabricated quotes from Eli which he NEVER said. Lovely, eh? Also, Eli wanted to make it clear that he is not the "DIRECTOR" of BAYWATCH THE MOVIE, I'm betting Richard Kelly will do it. (giggle) Eli is the "Co-Producer" of the film. Which basically means he will have the right to show up at the beaches and stare at Hasselhoff's body for hours, unless banned from the set. So there ya go, the record is straight.

Hey folks, Harry here... Ya know, sometimes the stories one gets sent are... well, just amazing. First off... Hasselhoff is a God after SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS THE MOVIE - but the idea that the BAYWATCH movie will be about crime-fighting lifeguards on a worldwide crime-busting spree... well, that's bliss. I hope they have a BAYWATCH INTERNATIONAL SPACE-WATCH TOWER - they watch the globe for coastal calamities, then like Starship Troopers being dropped from orbit, they splashdown in their capsules to deter criminals from their heinous aqua-activities! Well, I don't know about any of that - but here's what BangShowBiz.com had to say about this epic upcoming film...

Pamela Anderson will film a cameo in the new 'Baywatch' movie.

The sexy star, who shot to fame playing a lifeguard in the hit TV series, will make a guest appearance in the big screen adaptation of the show. Rumours had been rife Pammy would star in the movie, but it is now been revealed the original female cast - which included Carmen Electra and Traci Bingham - will be replaced by a younger crop of beauties.

Director Eli Roth said: "Pammy and the original cast will most likely do cameos in the movie. But for the main cast, they want to go with a new crop of hotties. The other producers spoke to Pamela about it and she said she'd love to do a cameo. For me it wouldn't be 'Baywatch' without her."

Meanwhile, 'Baywatch' creator David Hasselhoff has revealed the new film will include crime-fighting lifeguards. He said: "It will be set in different locations around the world. There will be lifeguards who are also sent on crime-busting sprees."

    Eli Roth is directing the Baywatch movie? I honestly for a second thought this was an April Fools joke. It isn't...is it?

    Richard Kelly

    by Brendon

    Apparently Kelly was asked to write the script by Roth, but the studio balked. I dare say this will go into production under Steve Miner or some other such hack. What's the director of Raise Your Voice called again? Something Maguire? He's the perfect choice - this really could then be guaranteed to turn out HILARIOUSLY awful.

  • Feb. 9, 2006, 6:51 a.m. CST

    the only question I have is...

    by judderman

    Will Pam's prediction in Futurama prove true? Will this actually be the first movie shot entirely in slow motion?

    Baywatch

    by Chilli815

    Anyone who watched TV during the Baywatch period is either lying when they say they haven't seen it, or just plain doesn't get the appeal. The show is crap, the show is awful, but its fun. Hell - I was watching it before adolescence kicked in, before I understood its true value, and I still dug it as a truly trashy soap-opera. If Eli makes this, I'll pay my fare!

  • Feb. 9, 2006, 9:09 a.m. CST

    Slooo-Moooo...

    by strongbadmonkey

    Will the entire movie be shot in slow motion? That way you could turn a 20 minute crap fest into an hour and 20 minute crap fest.

  • Feb. 9, 2006, 9:17 a.m. CST

    I suppose there could be worse ideas...

    by Dickie Greenleaf

    ...but I can't honestly think of any right now. But let's clear one thing up - Traci Bingham, Carmen Electra etc. were not original cast members. They replaced the first wave of replacements. In other words, let's give proper credit to the era-defining talents of the awesome Billy Warlock and really awesome Erika Eleniak. Boy, I miss her...

  • Feb. 9, 2006, 9:28 a.m. CST

    Too perfect!

    by Childe Roland

    Eli Roth directs "Baywatch - the Movie!" The Simpsons should've thought of this. Seriously, I cannot think of a single thing Roth is more suited to direct than a David Hasselhoff brainchild about international crime-fighting lifeguards. With special cameo by Roth as the dude with weed and a guitar who all the hot chicks really want to get with. This is one of the seven signs of the Apocalypse, by the way. Two if Pammy plays a scientist of any sort.

Jeezus, there are so many more awesome chicks out there (the 19 year old "Alma, Jr" from Brokeback Mtn. is a total hottie!!) and Pam should just go back to wherever she came from. IMHO.

    Wow. I mean... just... wow. That's gotta be a joke, right? Fucking Eli Roth. So now we can look forward to 12 months of mercilessly biased useless information about a fucking Baywatch movie. It'll be Hostel coverage, but with bathing suits! I can hardly wait. Assuming the Eli Roth thing is true. Which would seriously be a confluence of suckitude the likes of which this universe has never witnessed, and may not survive.

    thanks to the TBer above who reminded me of Erika...do a google image search, even with "safesearch" ON the girl is naked every chance she got, and people do not seem to realize with something like Baywatch or Basic Instinct 2, it is not that it is better then straight up porn, its just a fun diversion that has a more legitimate feel.

    by Childe Roland

    You just know that QT presents thing is coming, too, don't you? I mena, he'll be sitting around one of his houses, stoned out of his fucking melon, and Roth will show up with a bag of coke and a favor to ask: "Hey, Quentin...I got a problem. That Hostel movie you and Harry helped me hype to high heaven? Yeah...after opening weekend, word got out that it was pretty much boring as fuck with a contrived ending and no real plot. But I went out and spent all the money I was sure I was going to make on this bag of coke. So, anyway, now I'm having trouble drumming up geek support for this Baywatch flick I'm making. What? You didn't hear? Yeah. It's gonna have a lot of hot chicks with skimpy outfits running around and I even wrote myself this plum part as the dude they all want to get with. Anyway, the geeks are still kind of pissed about the whole Hostel farce, so they're talking like they aren't going to go see it. And Harry has like zero crdeibility left, so he's no help. So I was hoping you might do me a solid and slap that sure-fire 'Quentin Tarantino Presents' on the front end of this puppy so we can at least lock in a solid opening weekend and my coke connection doesn't break my legs. The geeks won't know. They woul eat a turd if you told 'em it tasted like French Vanilla ice cream. What? You'll do it for half the coke in this bag and 20% of the box office? Awesome!"

    Well, as long is it's Ang Lee

    by Vern

    which I assume it is since he is Pamela Anderson Lee's distant cousin. So I'm sure it will be good. I said it before and I'll say it again, Ang Lee could direct racoon Hamlet or live action Yogi Bear, he would figure out a way to Ang Lee it up and it would be good. Anyway, this story, like me, is obviously full of horse shit. I don't believe that both the writer and the person quoted would randomly refer to her as "Pammy." And I also don't believe they would make an actual theatrical Baywatch movie unless they made it all ironical like Dukes of Hazzard and Brady Bunch. And if they did that, you gotta remember, Baywatch was the most popular show on television for many years. There is probaly someone out there who takes it seriously. It could be the Danish Mohammed caricatures all over again. Look out.

    Redefining the B-movie

    by AdrianVeidt

    First off, we don't always see the television-show-turned-movie gimmick work that well, b/c in MOST cases, it is like a made-for-TV movie just on a bigger screen. I don't care what kind of names you have working behind this movie, it just doesn't have the content to be good. Besides, the best names wouldn't dare associate themselves with the words "baywatch" b/c just hearing the words "baywatch" incites numerous giggles.

    by KarmicRelief

    Interesting you'd mention the chick that played Alma, Jr from Brokeback as a potential Baywatch hottie. Michelle Williams, the actress that played Alma, was on a Baywatch episode back in the early 90's. Damn ashamed I actually know that.

    by Childe Roland

    ...because, had you been here when this first went up, you'd realize that Harry reported the story incorrectly initially...with Roth quoted as the director...and only added the "I got a call from Roth" later. In fact, if YOU had read the whole piece, even doctored as it is now, you'd probably have been able to figure that out on your own. Or perhaps I'm giving you too much credit?
