Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt are being silly in a film take of the ‘80s television series: The Fall Guy.

He’s a stuntman, and like everyone in the stunt community, he gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. And now, fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero has to track down a missing movie star, solve a conspiracy, and try to win back the love of his life while still doing his day job. What could possibly go right?

Colt Seavers, a Hollywood stunt performer, works as the stunt double for famous action star Tom Ryder. However, he is severely injured during a stunt gone wrong and he abandons his career and his girlfriend Jody Moreno, a camerawoman.

Eighteen months later, Colt, now a valet for a small Mexican restaurant, is contacted by Gail Meyer, Tom’s film producer. She tells him that Jody is directing her first film, a science fiction epic titled Metalstorm, and wants Colt to join the production in Sydney. After arriving on set, Colt learns that Jody never asked for him and is still angry about their breakup.

Gail reveals that Tom has disappeared after getting into trouble with drug dealers, and she wants Colt to find him before his absence causes the already overbudget film’s cancellation. Not wanting Jody’s directorial debut ruined, Colt starts to track down Tom.

From real-life stunt man and director David Leitch, Oscar® nominee Ryan Gosling (Barbie, La La Land, Drive) stars as Colt Seavers, as the battle-scarred stuntman, and his ex, Jody Moreno, is played by Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt (Oppenheimer, A Quiet Place, Sicario).

Inspired by the hit 1980s TV series,The Fall Guy, the film also stars Winston Duke (Black Panther franchise) and Academy Award® nominee Stephanie Hsu (Everything Everywhere All at Once).
