Eli Roth Not Directing Baywatch Movie

Ain’t It Cool News had a story up earlier today about how the long-rumoured Baywatch movie is moving forward, and that Pamela Anderson along with other Baywatch alumni would be making cameo appearances in the film. What’s more, Mr. Hasselhoff himself said that the plot would involve “crime-fighting lifeguards” sent around the world to combat evil. Still, the thing that really caught me off guard was that the movie was reportedly going to be directed by none other than cult horror filmmaker Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever). WTF?? Sure we all know he loves his T&A, but did this strike no one else as being a little weird? It turns out that none of these statements came from a reliable source (they were in fact taken from a British tabloid) and Eli Roth has written in to make it clear that he is only a co-producer on the movie NOT the director. Of course this begs the question… who should be directing the Baywatch movie?
