Pamela Anderson has taken a swipe at the upcoming Baywatch reboot, saying the iconic TV show should never be made into a movie.
The actress, who starred as C.J. Parker in the original series, wasn’t happy with plans to turn the 90’s series into a movie starring Zac Efron and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

“No one appreciates the remakes,” the 48-year-old told TMZ, adding that the 90’s were a “simpler, sweeter time” for television and the show won’t translate onto the big screen in 2015.
The dis might have something to do with the fact that Pammy won’t make an appearance in the remake. The Rock revealed during a Q&A that none of the original stars, including David Hasselhoff, were asked to be involved.
Johnson who was recently on the Gold Coast filming ‘San Andreas’ added that film bosses have been inundated with requests from young actresses keen to reprise Anderson’s iconic character.
“Who’s going to play C.J? I can’t tell you the amount of calls we’ve been getting from the most gorgeous actresses and models in the world, from their agents and managers. They all want to be C.J!”
“I think we’re going like pretty big with it and I don’t think it’s going to be much like the old Baywatch, to be honest. I think we’re going to kind of reinvent it in a big way.”
Filming is expected to start early next year.
