The Rock and McG team up for The Fall Guy movie reboot

September 9th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Anyone here old enough to remember The Fall Guy TV show?

It ran from 1981 until 1986 and starred Lee Majors as a stuntman who was also a bounty hunter… it was the 80s, just go with it. It also starred the very lovely Heather Thomas (bottom of the page) as a stunt actress who never cared much for clothes. Nice.

I haven’t seen it in years, but I remember really liking it as a little ‘un but I’m not sure to make of the news that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnston and McG are set to make it into a big screen adventure… hell, who am I kidding? It’s a great idea! Probably. Maybe. Perhaps…

No release date yet, but it’s on its way… get ready for chaos!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
