Alessandro (Alex) Tanaka, who was Bobby ‘Saja’ DeCastro in SWANS CROSSING, has been hired by Paramount along with Brian Gatewood to write a screenplay for a projected BAYWATCH film. This according to Perez Hilton.
DreamWorks, which was previously associated with Paramount, had said in 2004 that they were planning such a film and Jessica Simpson was rumoured to be cast as C.J.Parker, the character originally played by Pamela Anderson, but that never materialized. No word yet on the cast in Paramount’s film.
Tanaka and Gatewood also teamed to write the screenplay for THE SITTER, directed by David Gordon Green, which was released last December.
Tanaka is a cousin of Sarah Michelle Gellar.
