Pamela Anderson to star in The Naked Gun reboot

Pamela Anderson has joined Liam Neeson in the cast of 'The Naked Gun' reboot.

The 'Baywatch' actress is set to play the love interest of Neeson's Frank Drebin Jr. – the son of Leslie Nielsen's protagonist Detective Frank Drebin from the original films – in the movie that is slated for release in July 2025.

The role marks a return to film work for Pamela, 56, who has previously featured in pictures including 'Barb Wire', 'Scary Movie 3' and 'Superhero Movie'.

Akiva Schaffer is directing and executive producing the film while he has also penned a draft of the script alongside Dan Gregor and Doug Mand – the writers of the hit Disney+ film 'Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers'.

Liam recently confessed to feeling a "bit nervous" about the expectation that comes with reviving the spoof comedy franchise.

The 'Taken' actor told "I've done a couple of, like, TV skits with Stephen Colbert and Ricky Gervais, but those were two minutes, three minutes tops.

"But I'm a bit nervous about 'Naked Gun', because it's a feature film... If he tests it well, which I'm sure he will, Akiva Schaffer is our writer-director.

"And there's lots of funny gags, lots of funny visual gags happening at the same time while 'serious things' are being discussed, you know?"

Liam revealed that he will be putting his own stamp on the franchise rather than imitating the late comedy icon Nielsen.

The 71-year-old star explained: "I'll do my own thing. I remember Leslie very well. I love those films. Especially that first, 'Airplane!' You know, 'Don't call me Shirley'. Just that line alone, I think, changed Leslie's career up until he passed away."
