Why the Long Wait for “The Fall Guy” Will be Worth it

There have finally been some new updates on the remake of The Fall Guy. The movie is based on the 1980’s adventure series of the same name. The film directed by David Leitch, a former stuntman, is set to premiere on March 1, 2024.

In the main role we will find Ryan Gosling who will step into the role of Colt Seavers, who was played by Lee Majors in the original series. Joining him will be stars such as: Emily Blunt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Winston Duke, Stephanie Hsu, Hannah Waddingham and Teresa Palmer.

The plot of the remake will be somewhat changed from the original, however, without big changes to the essence of it. The original show had the protagonist, Colt Seavers, shown as a stuntman who moonlighted as a bounty hunter. In the remake, Colt will be portrayed as a rundown and past-his-prime stuntman who is barely hanging on to his position in the industry. He is brought back to the movie set to do a movie with a star he once doubled for (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Colt is later on dragged into a dangerous plot when the movie star goes missing.

The Fall Guy will be a PG-13 action movie. Whilst fans have been hoping for more hardcore action, the producer of the film, Kelly McCormick, has insisted that the difference between PG-13 and R-rated is not a big concern when bringing amazing action scenes to this movie. Even though the star Ryan Gosling is familiar to both PG-13 movies as well as R rated, the director David Leitch is not as familiar with PG-13. His movies like Bullet Train and Deadpool 2 embrace bloody violence. Nevertheless, the director has worked with PG -13 before like for instance in the movie Hobbs and Shaw.

The project of remaking The Fall Guy, has been in development for over a decade. That the movie is finally in making was confirmed when David Leitch took the stage together with actors Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt at CinemaCon. Nonetheless, the amazing cast together with the remarkable, breathtaking action scenes, will make it worth the wait.
