Pamela Anderson has signed on for the new 'Baywatch' movie

It was the TV show that turned her into a global megastar - and now Pamela Anderson is returning to her Baywatch roots.

The movie reboot of the '90s lifeguard drama, which stars The Rock and Zac Efron in lead roles, is currently shooting (to be released in May 2017), and yesterday The Rock shared the news on Instagram that Pammy is coming back.

He wrote:

"She introduced the world to "CJ Parker" and became one of the most iconic characters of a generation - for the most successful TV show of all time. A pleasure to welcome (as gorgeous as ever) Pamela Anderson to our #BAYWATCHcast. We couldn't have made this movie without you. Welcome home. Thrilled you had a blast with us! #BAYWATCH MAY 19, 2017. #PamAnderson#OS #OriginalSmokestack"

Precisely who Anderson will be playing in the movie is as yet unclear - Kelly Rohrbach has been cast as CJ Parker - so presumably Pam will be taking on a whole new role.
