What’s with the clothes?
As filming continues in Puerto Rico for Lifetime’s TV remake of The Blue Lagoon, it looks like producers are taking a more modest approach to costumes than Brooke Shield‘s no-top-no-problem take in the iconic 1980 film.
This time, Australian actress Indiana Evans is making her splash in the lagoon outfitted in denim shorts and a (fittingly) blue bikini top.
While Shields, then 15, wore what PEOPLE at the time described as “artfully shredded dinner napkins,” Evans, 21, has been photographed on-set in button-down shirts and jeans as the shipwrecked Emmaline.
She’s also been snapped in a white robe, suggesting some of those controversial nude scenes, in which Shields used a body double, might make it into the made-for-TV movie.
The reboot – which is actually the fourth version, after previous ones in 1923, 1949 and ’80 – began filming in February, and, so far, no airdate has been announced.
But, taking a look at Evans in the lagoon, how do you think she’ll measure up to Shields? Tell us what you think.
