LOS ANGELES, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- DreamWorks is planning to make a feature film version of the long-running international TV hit "Baywatch," Daily Variety reported Wednesday.

The series chronicled the adventures of a team of lifeguards in Southern California during a 12-year run on NBC. The show eventually became a hit in syndication in 142 countries and 44 languages -- and made international stars out of David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, Carmen Electra and Yasmine Bleeth.

There was no word on whether any of the series regulars will be involved in the movie. Variety said DreamWorks is putting the feature project on a fast track, with plans to get it into theaters during the summer of 2006.
