Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt’s action comedy The Fall Guy has moved up its release date from the previously announced March 1, 2024, to May 3, 2024 Universal announced. The feature helmed by David Leitch is inspired by the hit 1980s TV series of the same name, which saw Lee Majors as the titular stuntman. The recently released trailer gave fans a peak into the hilarious and action-savvy world that the director has created with an ensemble cast.
Written by Drew Pearce, The Fall Guys follows Colt Seavers, a former stuntman who is called back to duty when a major star, Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), he once doubled for, goes missing while shooting a film which is being directed by his ex-girlfriend, Jody Moreno (Blunt). Things take a sinister turn when Colt decides to investigate the disappearance but finds himself ensnared in a criminal plot.
‘The Fall Guy’ is Backed by Several Talents
Gosling is coming fresh off of the success of Barbie, which has now become a global phenomenon with the fanfare and its unparalleled success at the box office. Gosling is in award chatter for his scene-stealing stint as Ken and has bagged a Grammy nomination for ‘I’m Just Ken’ song. His counterpart in the ‘Barbenheimer’ phenomenon, Blunt is coming fresh off the success of Oppenheimer, which created as many waves at the box office and fanfare as Barbie. Blunt, unflinchingly portrayed Oppenheimer’s wife, Kitty Oppenheimer, and is in awards consideration as well. Leitch has created a niche for himself with slick, quick-witted, visually appealing, action-oriented features like Bullet Train, Deadpool 2, and Atomic Blonde among others. A former stunt man, the movie is being billed as a “love letter to action movies and the hard-working and under-appreciated crew of people who make them.”
Further, the movie’s ensemble cast also includes Winston Duke as a stunt coordinator and Colt’s best friend, Hannah Waddingham as Jody’s pushy executive producer Gail, while Stephanie Hsu plays Teresa Palmer, Ryder’s personal assistant. Furthermore, the original series’ star Majors will also make an appearance in the film. The movie is produced by Kelly McCormick and Leitch for their company 87North, Gosling, and Guymon Casady for Entertainment 360. Executive producers include Pearce, Entertainment 360’s Geoff Shaevitz, and the creator of the original TV series, Glen A. Larson.
