Sports Illustrated model Kelly Rohrbach is going from bikini to...bikini.

The model-actress has nabbed the plum role of CJ Parker in Baywatch, Paramount's big-screen take on the 1990s television series about California lifeguards that star Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.

Seth Gordon is directing the feature, which is swimming towards a shoot with Alexandra Daddario also in the crew.

CJ Parker, one of the lifeguards on the team, was a longstanding character on the original show and played by Pamela Anderson, who vaulted to international fame playing her.

Paramount's movie centers on a by-the-book and very serious lifeguard (Johnson) who is forced to team up with a young rule-flouting hothead (Efron) in order to save their beach from environmental destruction at the hands of an oil tycoon. Damian Shannonand Mark Swift wrote the most recent draft.

Beau Flynn and Ivan Reitman are producing. Johnson's Seven Bucks Productions will also produce in some capacity.

WME-repped Rohrbach has appeared on a handful of television show such as Rizzoli & Isles and is due to appear in Woody Allen's upcoming untitled movie with Kristen Stewart and Steve Carell.
