CJ may yet don her iconic red swimsuit again as Pamela Anderson has joined the cast of the Baywatch movie.

Dwayne Johnson made the announcement on his Instagram account calling CJ Parker "one of the most iconic characters of a generation." Johnson went on to say that "[we] couldn't have made this movie without [Anderson]."

Anderson joins the other lead character from the original TV show David Hasselhoff who signed up for the movie in March. Carmen Electra, another TV series favorite, has also recently intimated that she would be very keen to be involved with the movie.

Baywatch centers on the leader of an elite group of lifeguards (Johnson) who is forced to team up with a young hotshot former Olympian (Zac Efron) to save the beloved bay. The movie began shooting Feb. 22.

Directed by Seth Gordon, Baywatch co-stars Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Kelly Rohrbach and Hannibal Buress.
