Now that the pieces have fallen into place (on a crash runway, we hope), director David Leitch and star Ryan Gosling are pushing their film adaptation of ‘The Fall Guy’ into top gear.

Emily Blunt joined the cast recently, and the newest addition is Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

Originally created by prolific TV producer Glen A. Larson (whose prolific TV production plant also screened shows like ‘Buck Rogers’, ‘Battlestar Galactica’ and ‘Knight Rider’), ‘The Fall Guy’ took place between 1981 and 1986, and starring Lee Majors as Colt Seavers.

As his film job starts to dry up, Seavers turns into a bounty hunter, using all the knowledge he gains to make action films to track down and defeat con artists, thieves, bikers, con artists, fugitives, and corrupt officials with his fists. and vehicle skills.

Majors stars alongside Douglas Barr and Heather Thomas as Colt partners Howie Munson and Jody Banks, who help him on his mission. While the show is often an ’80s cheese TV show, the concept definitely has legs.

‘Terminator Salvation’ director McG asked Dwayne Johnson to star in 2013, with a script from Zack Stentz and Ashley Edward Miller.

The take on Word of Leitch and Gosling first appeared in 2020, was later referred to as the ‘Unknown Stuntman Movie’ and was endorsed by Universal.

With The Hollywood Reporter’s story of casting Taylor-Johnson comes new information about the storyline for this one, which seems to have largely ditched the side parts of the original show.

Gosling stars as a battered and past his prime stuntman who finds himself returning to films with a star he worked with for a long time and who replaced him. The problem, however, is that the star is now gone…

Taylor-Johnson will be the star of the film Gosling doubled, while Blunt is a prosthetic makeup artist who has a romantic past with our hero.

The new film will see Leitch – a former expert stuntman himself, who has used the experience in his action-packed directing career – reunite with Taylor-Johnson after the latter played the stand-up killer Tangerine in ‘Bullet Train’.

With a script from ‘Iron Man 3’s Drew Pearce and cameras rolling in Australia, ‘The Fall Guy’ is aiming for a March 1, 2024 release.
