The cast of Baywatch all ready to suit up and hit the beach, as filming begins on the upcoming movie based on the popular '90s TV show.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson cheered on his tanned and toned castmates via social media on Sunday, sharing a photo of a table read for the film.

"Like a proud papa silverback, just look at this talented cool/hot #Baywatch cast.. @ilfenator, @alexannadaddario, @zacefron, @priyankachopra, @kellyrohrbach, @thejonbass and some tatted up, bald brown man with a large head," Johnson, 43, wrote.

He continued, "This squad has been working extremely hard for months for these roles – the time has come – we start shooting TOMORROW. Let's roll and bring the world some beach fun. #BAYWATCH #LifeguardsOnDuty #AndZacHasNiceT---."

In the image, the faux lifeguards sat around a coffee-cup-littered table and laughed as they looked over their scripts. Efron, seated next to Johnson, was wearing a sweatshirt that appeared to read "Bae Watch."

Kelly Rohrbach, who will portray Pamela Anderson's iconic CJ Parker, also shared the image on Instagram, writing, "here we go..."

"We have such a hilarious and cool cast, amazing location, talented crew, writers, director, producers," she wrote. "It's gon' be off the chain. Get ready for a wild ride!"

The film's other leads include Quantico's Priyanka Chopra – who only recently joined the production to play the villain Victoria Leeds – and Alexandra Daddario.

Johnson has been welcoming the beach bums to the cast through Instagram, sharing cute videos with his new castmates in the months since the adaptation was announced.
