It’s time to go back to the beach.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson confirmed on Friday rumors that he’ll be involved in a big-screen adaptation of Baywatch, tweeting, “This is my beach bitch!” Rumors are true… we’re making #BAYWATCH the movie.” Sources tell EW that there is not yet a deal in place with Johnson, however.

According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, Sean Anders and John Morris (We’re the Millers) are on board to direct the Paramount film with Justin Malen rewriting the script. Montecito Pictures is producing alongside Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson, according to THR. A rep for Paramount would not comment on the report to EW.

No word whether or not Pamela Anderson will be joining the action film along the shores of Santa Monica, but one can only assume there will be red bathing suits aplenty.

Johnson also shared a preview of what to expect on Instagram:
