'Baywatch' Casts Alexandra Daddario as Female Lead

Rest easy. We now know who will get to wear one of the plethora of red swimsuits in the big screen Baywatch remake, and it's Dwayne Johnson's San Andreas co-star Alexandra Daddario.

Daddario beat out a number of actreses for the role, including Ashley Benson and Nina Dobrev. That earns her the chance to get saved by Johnson once again, or perhaps she'll be saved from a watery fate by Zac Efron who plays her love interest. The film will be directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) and center on a veteran lifeguard and a young hotshot who must save their beach from a greedy tycoon. Sounds brilliant.

Baywatch begins shooting next year. [Deadline]
