Hold onto your swimsuit: Sports Illustrated model and Leonardo DiCaprio’s former flame Kelly Rohrbach will step into Pamela Anderson’s red one-piece for an upcoming “Baywatch” remake—her biggest movie role to date.

The 24-year-old will star alongside Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson as Mitch—the male lead character originally played by David Hasselhoff—and Zac Efron. Another new face includes “True Detective” alum Alexandra Daddario as Summer, the role made famous by Nicole Eggert.

Right now details of the plot are thin, but Variety reports that scriptwriters are taking a comedic route with the flick, and that production is set to kick off early this year.

Rohrbach and Johnson introduced their roles in the upcoming reprisal with a series of Instagram videos that feature plenty of slow-motion running on the sand—tied together with a satirical spin. We’re looking forward to this one.
