Pamela Anderson has dropped her biggest hint yet that she’s set for a role in the upcoming big screen version of Baywatch.
Anderson made her name as C.J. Parker, the California lifeguard beach goers were queuing up to receive mouth-to-mouth from.
Having spent five years on the show alongside such acting luminaries as David Hasselhoff, Baywatch helped cement Anderson’s status as a bona fide star.
So when news broke that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron were starring in a new film version, many thought Anderson would naturally get in on the action.
However, until now, Anderson has remained tight-lipped on the subject of whether she will don her iconic red swimsuit again for a bit of slow-motion shoreline running. She’s been happy to let newcomer Kelly Rohrbach take the limelight for her role in the film as the rebooted C.J.
That’s all changed after the 48-year-old took to Instagram to offer her strongest hint yet that a Baywatch movie cameo could be on the cards.
Pictured sporting a new and perhaps more mature looking black swimsuit and what appears to be a starting pistol, Anderson laid it on even thicker with the hashtags “#Baywatch” and “#hereicome”.
The message is made all the more poignant for the fact it comes 20 years to the day of Anderson’s most notable Hollywood release – no, not that one.
Back in April 1996, Anderson was looking to make it big at the movies with Barbwire – a racy adaptation of the cult Dark Horse comic that told the story of an ass-kicking female mercenary living in a post-apocalyptic future.
Made on a budget of around $9 million the film, unfortunately, raked in just $3.8 million at the box office with Anderson picking up a Razzie award for Worst New Star of 1996.
Interestingly, the movie also happened to steal its entire plot from Casablanca.
Because that was the sort of thing studio executives thought people wanted to see if the 1990s – a soft-porn sci-fi remake of a film classic.
