Is JT Baywatch Bound?

Justin Timberlake is being sought to play the lead role in the long-gestating film version of the hit 90's TV series "Baywatch" at Paramount says Twitch.

A film based the series has been planned for years first using an action heavy script by David Ronn and Jay Scherick. And then Jeremy Garelick infused his draft with a more comedic tone.

As it stands the film would have JT as a disgraced former Olympic swimmer trying out for the Baywatch crew.

As of late last year "Rescue Me" co-creator Peter Tolan  had reportedly finished the latest script which goes the way of the recent 21 Jump Street movie in that it's not a parody but it is a comedy, and is only loosely based on the show even though there will be some nods to the series.
