Can you imagine this guy (Dwayne Johnson) as 1980s TV character the "Fall Guy"?
The Rock may team up with filmmaker McG on the big-screen version of The Fall Guy.
A big-screen version of the hit 1980 TV show The Fall Guy is coming together with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to star and McG directing.
Both are are negotiating to come aboard the project, which will be financed by Ashok Amritrage’s Hyde Park Entertainment and WWE Entertainment, a source close to the project told TheWrap on Thursday.
Amritrage would produce along with Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, who own the rights to the show, and WWE’s Michael Luisi. McG may also produce.
The Fall Guy was a TV show that starred Lee Majors as a stunt man who did bounty hunter work on the side, utilising his Hollywood skills. It ran on ABC from 1981 to 1986.
Warner Bros and DreamWorks have both considered projects based on the show in past years, with Nicolas Cage considered for the lead role. The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report the news out of Toronto, Canada, where the project is being shopped. — Reuters
