BaywatchIt's been a long, dark decade of waiting and wishing, but today a ray of sunshine has finally broken through, giving hope to weary fans: 'Baywatch' is one step closer to returning.

On the big screen, that is. Yes, according to the Hollywood Reporter, executives at Paramount are proceeding full speed ahead with a planned 'Baywatch' feature adaptation. The latest development: Screenwriters Brian Gatewood and Allessandro Tanaka have been brought aboard to punch up the script.

Okay, so that's not quite the most Earth-shattering announcement in Hollywood history, but it's another step in the right direction for anyone looking forward to the return of the beloved franchise, which went off the air seemingly for good back in 2001 when 'Baywatch Hawaii' aired its final slo-mo beach jog. The move follows last summer's hiring of 'The Break-Up' co-writer Jeremy Garelick as director.
