Plans for a big screen version of the 1980’s television series The Fall Guy are back on track today as The Hollywood Reporter brings word that star Dwayne Johnson and director McG are teaming to tackle the property.
The original series, which ran for five seasons beginning in 1981, starred Lee Majors as Colt Seavers, a Hollywood stuntman who also worked as a bounty hunter. Created by Glen A. Larson, the show also starred Douglas Barr and Heather Thomas.
Back in 2011, Green Lantern and Casino Royale helmer Martin Campbell was eyeing the project himself with X-Men: First Class screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz providing the screenplay. There’s no word yet on whether any of their script will be retained for this iteration.
The Fall Guy will be produced by Ashok Amritraj, Laurie MacDonald and Walter Parkes.
