In The Fall Guy, Universal’s big-screen adaptation of the 1980s adventure television series, Ryan Gosling is paired with Winston Duke. The action spectacular is being directed by Bullet Train filmmaker David Leitch, and stars Stephanie Hsu, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Emily Blunt.
Unlike the original Lee Majors-starring show from the 1980s, this one doesn’t center on a stuntman who also works as a bounty hunter. Instead, the Drew Pearce-penned narrative centers on a wounded and past-his-prime stuntman (Gosling) who unexpectedly finds himself back on a film with the star he doubled for years ago and who later replaced him. The star has vanished, though, which is the wrinkle.
The Fall Guy, Movie casts Ryan Gosling, Emily Blunt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Stephanie Hsu, and Winston Duke. The main filming started in October 2022 at Fox Studios Australia in Moore Park, Sydney, Australia. On October 20, 2022, the media showed pictures of the production filming at night in the Goulburn Street parking lot in Sydney. The Fall Guy will debut on March 1st, 2024.
Winston Duke will portray the stuntman’s closest pal. Taylor-Johnson portrays the movie star, and Hsu serves as his personal assistant. In her role as a prosthetic makeup artist with a romantic history with the stuntman, Blunt is cast. Pearce and Geoff Shaevitz will work together as executive producers. The project is being managed by Universal’s executive vp production Matt Reilly and director of development Tony Ducret.
Duke won over fans by portraying the scene-stealing warrior commander in Black Panther. He has since returned to the role in two Avengers films and in Wakanda Forever, which will be released on November 11 and is expected to be one of the biggest films of the year. In addition, Before getting cast in Person of Interest, Duke began performing in plays for Yale Repertory Theatre and Portland Stage Company.
While attending Yale, he became friends with Lupita Nyong’o, a fellow actor with whom he later appeared in the films Us and Black Panther. As M’Baku, Duke played a prominent role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers Endgame. Jordan Peele’s hugely successful horror movie Us, in which Duke appeared, was released in 2019. O’Shea Jackson Jr. took Duke’s position as the star of the upcoming Apple TV+ drama series Swagger after Duke sustained an injury during the filming of the show in February 2020. He co-starred with Mark Wahlberg in the Netflix suspense film Spenser Confidential in March 2020.
