(Welcome to…And moreOur no-frills, BS-free guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows and everything else you might know.)
Ryan Gosling is back, honey, and so far, his return has been… Well, I won’t lie, a little underwhelming. But don’t be afraid! For those who aren’t interested in a “The Gray Man” sequel Netflix may or may never make (this isn’t the first time the company has ordered a sequel that has never been made). being done), Gos has also received remakes of “Barbie” by Greta Gerwig, “Werewolves” with “Blue Valentine” and “The Place Beyond the Pines” by director Derek Cianfrance, and exciting projects. other.
Another entry on Gosling’s to-do list was “The Fall Guy”, a film based on the television series of the same name (aired on ABC from 1981 to 1986) about Hollywood stuntmen, rogues like bounty hunters. Fittingly, the film is being directed by stunt filmmaker David Leitch, the director of “Deadpool 2” and most recently “Bullet Train”. Leitch is known for mixing action with humor in films that often focus on cranky anti-hero characters, which is a bit offensive because that description more or less sums up “The Gray Man”.
Perhaps Leitch will allow Gosling to unleash his full potential for humor the way Shane Black did in “The Nice Guys”? That remains to be seen, but here’s everything we know for sure about “The Fall Guy” so far.
The Fall Guy release date and where to watch it
Universal Pictures has scheduled “The Fall Guy” to hit theaters exclusively on March 1, 2024, before hitting the home media market. It is one of the few live-action films slated to hit theaters that month, with “A Quiet Place: Day One” and its untitled sequel “Godzilla vs. Kong” set to hit the big screen in two weeks later. March 2024 will then close with the animated feature “Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse”, making it a pretty busy month for audiences of the franchise.
As for streaming, the fact that “The Fall Guy” is being distributed by Universal means it will eventually be available to stream for free to Peacock subscribers. The film’s box office performance will determine whether “The Fall Guy” quickly hits other video-on-demand services (namely Vudu) within a few weeks or just hangs around in theaters for a while. longer period of time.
The Fall Guy Cast and Crew
David Leitch will direct “The Fall Guy” and produce with Kelly McCormick through their 87North label, based on a script by Drew Pearce. The latter, also an executive producer, previously worked on “Iron Man 3” and “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”, in addition to co-writing “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” (which Leitch also Directed).
Plot details aren’t finalized at this time, but that’s why Ryan Gosling stars in the film as Colt Seavers, a stuntman – played by Lee Majors in the original TV show. – who uses his stunt know-how to take down crooks while on a side job as a bounty hunter (hey, in this day and age, who will not stand to benefit from a second job, right?). According to a report from Limit lineEmily Blunt is now signed on to star with Gosling in the film, presumably as Colt’s fellow stuntwoman Jody Banks (as Heather Thomas in the TV series) or equivalent.
As you may have known earlier, I’m not a huge Leitch fan, but the prospect of a buddy action movie starring Gosling and Blunt certainly has potential. Crossing fingers, this movie will bring us the next great A-lister/Gosling pairing.
