Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has confirmed via Instagram that there is a Baywatch movie in the works, and he is going to be patrolling the beach. Johnson's enthusiastic caption reads:
This is my beach bitch! Rumors are true... we're making #BAYWATCH the movie. Edgy, raunchy and hopefully, funny as all hell. Cue slo mo running on the beach... #WhoNeedsMouthToMouth #RedShortsBeHugginABrotha
Johnson may be one of the first to use the #RedShortBeHuggingABrotha hashtag, but he certainly won't be the last.
