Universal Pictures is pushing back the release of The Fall Guy starring Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt. The action comedy film was originally set to premiere on March 1, 2024, and will now drop on Friday, May 3, 2024.
The move will put the movie in Deadpool 3’s former slot, which Marvel recently announced had moved to July 26 of next year.
The Fall Guy revolves around Gosling’s Colt Seavers, a battle-scarred stuntman who, having left the business a year earlier to focus on both his physical and mental health, is drafted back into service when the star of a mega-budget studio movie—being directed by his ex, Jody Moreno (Blunt), goes missing.
The film is inspired by the 1980s ABC series created by Glen A. Larson and starred Lee Majors as Colt Seavers. The Fall Guy ran for five seasons on the alphabet network with over 100 episodes produced.
Also starring in the film are Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Winston Duke and Stephanie Tsu. David Leitch directs the film from a screenplay by Drew Pearce. Kelly McCormick and Leitch produce for their company 87North with Gosling and Guymon Casady also producing for Entertainment 360.
The film is executive produced by Drew Pearce, Entertainment 360’s Geoff Shaevitz and the creator of the original Fall Guy television series, Glen A. Larson.
