The Fall Guy

Russ Matthews & Ben McEachen discuss this real life stunt man and director David Leitch, the blockbuster director of Bullet Train, Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and the producer of John Wick, Nobody and Violent Night, comes his most personal film yet. A new hilarious, hard-driving, all-star apex-action thriller and love letter to action movies and the hard-working and under-appreciated crew of people who make them: The Fall Guy.

Film Summary: Filmed throughout Sydney before the recent Writer’s/Actor’s strike, the crew were seen from the Opera House to the beaches of this beautiful city. Jody Moerno (Blunt) is filming the latest sci-fi romance with the biggest star in Hollywood, Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), in the lead role. When Tom goes missing, the film’s executive producer, Gail Meyer (Hannah Waddingham), calls in former stuntman Colt Seavers (Gosling) to help on set and to do his best to find the missing star. This solution produces as many problems as it does results since he is Jody’s former boyfriend, and it was during the last Tom Ryder production that the action choreographer was severely injured. Yet, Colt decides to come out of retirement and head to Sydney to help save the movie. Still, it doesn’t take long for him to realise that there is more to Ryder’s disappearance than he is led to initially believe.

We've got a lot of ground to cover!
