Indiana Evans Covers Up in Blue Lagoon Remake

Posted on

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.

Assuming Christopher Atkins‘s role opposite Evans: fellow Aussie Brenton Thwaites. Denise Richards will also star in the telefilm.

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.
