Naked Gun Remake Adds Iconic Baywatch Star To Cast

Pamela Anderson will reportedly play the love interest to Liam Neeson's character.


There is something to see here, as the Naked Gun remake has brought on Baywatch icon Pamela Anderson to star alongside Liam Neeson. Her role hasn't been disclosed yet, but the actress will follow in the footsteps of the original film trilogy's Priscilla Presley, according to a new report.

The Hollywood Reporter says Anderson will play the love interest of Neeson, who will play Drebin. In the original trilogy--including the TV show Police Squad--Leslie Nielsen hilariously brought Detective Frank Drebin to life. When the Naked Gun reboot was initially reported in development back in 2022, it was believed that Neeson may in fact play as the son of Nielsen's Dreben.

Anderson rose to prominence in the 1990s, appearing in the first two seasons of Home Improvement and then starring in Baywatch from 1992-97. Her personal life has also been well documented, such as getting a Hulu limited series called Pam & Tommy in recent years. She also spearheaded her own personal project with Netflix's Pamela: A Love Story that debuted last year.

Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers director Akiva Schaffer will helm the Naked Gun remake, as well as script the film with Dan Gregor and Doug Mand. They all worked together on the Disney+ movie that married live-action with animation. Schaffer is also known for being a member of Lonely Island and directing Hot Rod as well as Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.

The Naked Gun remake is planned to premiere in theaters July 18, 2025.
