Monty Python star John Cleese is to star in a Baywatch parody film.

The 74-year-old actor and comedian, best known for playing Basil in classic sitcom Fawlty Towers, will play an archetypal British villain, living in on a yacht in the Mediterranean, in the movie called The B-Team.

While the stars from the original Baywatch series, including David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, will reportedly feature in the big-screen parody, the film is contractually obliged to avoid ever mentioning the word Baywatch because producers do not have the rights, according The Guardian.

Baywatch ran for 11 seasons between 1989 and 2001.
