UPDATE: The first Trailer for The Fall Guy is here!
Synopsis: He’s a stuntman, and like everyone in the stunt community, he gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. And now, fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero has to track down a missing movie star, solve a conspiracy and try to win back the love of his life while still doing his day job. What could possibly go right?
UPDATE: Aaron Taylor-Johnson is set to reunite with his Bullet Train director David Leitch in The Fall Guy. Joining him and the previously announced Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt is Everything Everywhere All At Once star Stephanie Hsu.
The film follows Gosling as a battered and past-his-prime stuntman who finds himself back on a movie with the star (played by Taylor-Johnson) for whom he doubled long ago and who replaced him. However, the mystery is that the star has gone missing.
Hsu will play the assistant to the movie star and Blunt will portray a prosthetic makeup artist that has a romantic past with the stuntman.
Emily Blunt (A Quite Place Part II) is set to join Ryan Gosling (The Gray Man) in Universal Pictures’ upcoming action thriller The Fall Guy.
The film will be directed by David Leitch (Bullet Train) who is also serving as producer alongside partner Kelly McCormick via their 87North Productions, Ryan Gosling and Guymon Casady through Entertainment 360. Drew Pearce, who worked with Leitch on Universal’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, wrote the script and serves as executive producer.
Plot details are currently unknown but the film is said to be inspired by the 1980s series of the same name.
A release date is set for May 3, 2024.
