Robert Ben Garant to Direct a 'Baywatch' Movie (This Is Real)

In a movie that will likely be 50% in slow motion, Robert Ben Garant is going to direct a comedic version of the syndicated drama about boobs on the beach. The Baywatch script was written by Peter Tolan (creator of Rescue Me, Larry Sanders Show writer) and described as being comparable to Stripes. (Finally, we'll get to see Bill Murray and the ghost of John Candy in red bikinis.) It's not clear yet if Garant will re-work or completely rewrite the script; however, either way, this is one really weird project.
