Universal Pictures has announced a delay in the release of the action comedy film, The Fall Guy, starring Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt. Originally scheduled for March 1, 2024, the film will now premiere on May 3, 2024. The new date puts The Fall Guy in the slot previously occupied by Deadpool 3, which Marvel recently revealed has been moved to July 26, 2024. The Fall Guy centers around Gosling's character, Colt Seavers, a stuntman with a troubled past who left the industry to prioritize his well-being.
However, he is reluctantly drawn back into the business when his ex-girlfriend and director, Jody Moreno (played by Blunt), goes missing during the production of a blockbuster film. The movie is based on the 1980s television series of the same name, created by Glen A. Larson and starring Lee Majors as Colt Seavers. The original show aired for five seasons on ABC and produced over 100 episodes. In addition to Gosling and Blunt, The Fall Guy also features Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Winston Duke, and Stephanie Tsu.
Directed by David Leitch and written by Drew Pearce, the film is produced by 87North, Entertainment 360, and Gosling and Guymon Casady. Drew Pearce, Geoff Shaevitz from Entertainment 360, and Glen A. Larson, the creator of the original TV series, serve as executive producers. Watch the trailer for The Fall Guy in the accompanying video
