With few plot details available, we can only guess that Efron will be topless and wearing red shorts as he runs in slow motion along long stretches of Californian beach. An inspired casting choice, if you ask us.
But we’ve got a hint of storyline from The Hollywood Reporter which has Johnson playing a “very serious lifeguard” who joins up with a young, rather unpredictable “hothead”, played by Efron, to save the beach being destroyed by an oil tycoon.
Production on the film is expected to start in early 2016.
