Pamela Anderson To Star In Naked Gun Remake Alongside Liam Neeson


Baywatch and Barb Wire star Pamela Anderson is headed back to the big screen for a remake of the Naked Gun, opposite Liam Neeson.



Leslie Nielsen’s Lt. Frank Drebin was wrong: Cops and women do mix, and with that we have Pamela Anderson joining Liam Neeson in Paramount Pictures’ untitled Naked Gun reboot, which Akiva Schaffer is directing and executive producing for a July 18, 2025 theatrical release.


The Baywatch actress of 110 episodes has the comedy chops; she’s starred in such big-screen titles as Scary Movie 3 and Superhero Movie, both satirical movies ala the spirit of Naked Gun. Anderson also reprised her TV role of C.J. Parker in Paramount’s big-screen 2017 redux of Baywatch that starred Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and Alexandra Daddario.


Dan Gregor and Doug Mand wrote the draft script along with Schaffer for Naked Gun. Gregor and Mand also wrote the Emmy-winning Disney+ movie Chip ‘N Dale: Rescue Rangers. Seth MacFarlane and Erica Huggins are producing Naked via their company Fuzzy Door. Daniel M. Stillman is EP.


The movie is based on the Naked Gun movie franchise, which was spurred by the TV series Police Squad! also starring Nielsen. Naked Gun was created by the original architects of Paramount’s Airplane!: Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker. During the early 1990s, the Naked Gun trilogy was a domestic cash cow, racking up over $216 million at the box office. Similar to Airplane!, Naked Gun was revered for its outrageous parody, ridiculous set-ups and on-screen sight gags (often what was going on in the background was more hysterical than the action taking place upfront).


Anderson is repped by Chris Smith of Independent Artist Group, Don Steele of Hansen, Jacobson and Lester Knispel of Boulevard Management.


Naked Gun is another feather in Paramount’s cap when it comes to bringing comedies back to the big screen, a genre that’s been absorbed greatly by streaming. Recent big Paramount comedies were the Sandra Bullock-Channing Tatum adventure romance The Lost City ($192.9M worldwide) and Mean Girls ($104.4M).
