About The Fall Guy Movie:

The Fall Guy is an American action comedy film directed by David Leitch and written by Drew Pearce. It is an adaptation of the 1980s TV series of the same name created by Glen A. Larson. The film stars Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt.

In July 2010, plans were announced for a film adaptation of the 1980s series “The Fall Guy” by DreamWorks Pictures, with Martin Campbell considered as director. In September 2013, Dwayne Johnson was in talks for the lead role, with McG potentially directing.

Fast forward to September 2020, a new project involving Ryan Gosling, director David Leitch, and writer Drew Pearce was revealed as an “unnamed stuntman film” acquired by Universal Pictures. In May 2022, it was confirmed this project was indeed the long-awaited adaptation of “The Fall Guy,” with Universal producing alongside Leitch’s 87North Productions and Gosling’s Entertainment 360. The film received significant financial support from the Australian Government and the New South Wales state authorities, with production taking place in Australia.

Principal photography began in October 2022 in Sydney, Australia, at the Disney Studios Australia in Moore Park, Sydney. On October 20, 2022, images of the production filming night shoots in the Goulburn Street parking lot in Sydney appeared in the media with Gosling sporting long hair and a beard.

On January 22, 2023, the Sydney Harbour Bridge was closed for several daytime hours for the filming of scenes involving Ryan Gosling. Principal photography was completed on March 2, 2023.

The Fall Guy was released in theaters in the United States and Canada on May 3, 2024.
