Reports are surfacing linking Irish model and singer Nadia Forde to a role in the upcoming Baywatch movie.
Zac Efron and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson are set to star in a big screen adaptation of the famous 90s television series, which followed the lives of a team of lifeguards working on a Californian beach.
Forde (26) is thought to be in the running to play Summer Quinn, who was played by Nicole Eggert in the small screen original.
Evoke.ie report that Nadia, who impressed in the UK during her stint on I'm a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here! last year, has had "a few callbacks" and has impressed casting agents with her American accent.
The film will be shot next year with director Seth Gordon at the helm and Efron has described it as "big, real, raw and r rated".
Whilst Pamela Anderson, who originally played busty blond CJ Parker, has said "nobody appreciates the remakes" when asked about her feelings on the movie, it seems plenty of actresses are interested in playing her former role.
"Who's going to play C.J.?" Dwayne said when the film was announced. "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."
