A total of five seasons of The Fall Guy aired until the show was cancelled in 1986.

In 2010, work began on a cinematic adaptation of the show, with Martin Campbell in mind for the director’s chair.

Three years after the initial pitch, it was revealed that McG would helm the film.

When it was revealed that Gosling would be playing the lead role, however, the two actors dropped out of the film, which Leitch had taken on in 2020.

Drew Pearce, who has worked with the director on 2019’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, created the film’s screenplay.

No information about the show’s plot is being released at this time.
