Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson shared the first look at the new Baywatch squad on Instagram, but there’s a glaring Priyanka Chopra-sized hole in the picture. She’s nowhere to be seen.
The picture is reminiscent of the classic Baywatch cast images, which have characters running in slow motion on the beach, posing like they are just about to run in slow motion on the beach, or simply chilling in the sand with the intention of running in slow motion on the beach sometime later. We also get a good look at the new costumes - which look incredible, by the way, but they aren’t as racy as the original.
“Are we badass? Yes. Do we save lives? All day,” Dwayne Johnson captioned the photo on his Instagram.
We see cast members Jon Bass, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera and Zac Efron. But then again, where’s Priyanka Chopra?
EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: Our entire #BAYWATCH squad. Are we bad ass? Yes. Do we save lives? All day. Are we a dysfunctional family? Epically. Do we have fun? F*CK YES. We work hard, we play hard. @thejonbass @alexannadaddario @kellyrohrbach @ilfenator @zacefron #BAYWATCH Get ready world... MAY 19, 2017. (and yes, I'm the king of the #FargoStrut.. squared circle historians know what that means.. #OurBelovedMemphisTerritory woo!)
The Bollywood star is playing the villain in the film, but aside from a few on-set snaps of her from Instagram, we’ve hardly got a glimpse at her. Are they keeping her a secret?
The Rock’s introductory post built Priyanka up as a really formidable villain. So, just maybe, her absence from this image of the ‘good guys’ is understandable.
She's one of the biggest stars in the world. Insanely talented, relentlessly smokin' and extremely dangerous - perfect for #BAYWATCH. Welcome @PriyankaChopra to our bad ass and incredibly dysfunctional family. Cue RATED R slo-mo running on the beach. We start shooting next week. World.. #WelcomeToBaywatch 🇺🇸🌊🇮🇳👊🏾
Baywatch is directed by Seth Gordon, and slated for release on May 19, 2017.
