Ryan Gosling’s Next Movie Has “Huge” Stunts That Haven’t Been Done For Real In 10+ Years


  • The Fall Guy promises impressive stunts that haven’t been seen in over ten years, including a 150-foot fall and a 250-foot jump over a crevasse.
  • The film features a large stunt team of 120 people who worked together to create practical stunts that rival CGI effects.
  • The emphasis on practical stunt work sets The Fall Guy apart and contributes to the film’s potential as a hit action film in 2024.

Ryan Gosling’s upcoming action film The Fall Guy features impressive stunts that supposedly have not been done in over a decade. The Fall Guy tells the story of former stuntman Colt Seavers (Gosling) who, after taking a hiatus due to mental health concerns, is thrust back into the scene after star Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) goes missing off of the set of his ex-girlfriend Judy’s (Emily Blunt) movie.

Speaking with Empire, The Fall Guy producer Kelly McCormick promises huge stunts for the upcoming action film. McCormick discussed some impressive stunts including “a huge 150-foot fall” and “a 250-foot jump over a giant crevasse,” some of which “hadn’t happened in about ten years.” In order to make these stunts happen, The Fall Guy needed a stunt team of about 120 people, who worked together to do stunt work that might normally be captured by CGI. Check out the full quote from McCormick below:

It was a really special set. We were doing these huge stunts, like a huge 150-foot fall, which hadn’t happened in about ten years. We did a 250-foot jump over a giant crevasse – I’m not even sure how we achieved that, to be honest! We did a giant cannon roll [flipping a car multiple times] on a beach – that hadn’t been done since, I think, Casino Royale. Stunt performers often don’t get to do big stunts anymore, because CG is so good. But they went in with dreams and goals and aspirations, and we were able to give them opportunities they hadn’t had in a long time, if at all. It was dream fulfilment. And I think you can see the difference.

The Fall Guy’s Stunt Work Further Hints At The Film Being 2024’s Hit Action Film

The Fall Guy trailer has already shown that the film has great potential to be 2024’s next hit action film. Vacillating between Gosling and Blunt’s fractured love story and the action-adventure plot at heart, the trailer highlighted the movie’s thrills and heart. Both Gosling and Blunt have had big years in 2023 between Barbie and Oppenheimer, respectively, further contributing to their universal appeal in The Fall Guy.

The action film recently made a strong tactical move by pushing its release date out. Originally set to release in March 2024, The Fall Guy has now moved its release date to May 3, 2024. This well-positions The Fall Guy in a release window that has typically been successful for action films, and one that next year will go uncontested by other blockbuster competition, as the next high-profile action releases do not hit theaters until the end of May.

Given all these already-optimistic factors, the news of The Fall Guy’s grand stunt work is somewhat of the cherry on top for the film. With a plot focused on stunt work, it makes sense that the film would put a lot of emphasis on the stunt work. From McCormick’s description, however, it sounds like The Fall Guy has gone above and beyond what they would need to do for the action sequences in order to create practical stunt work that excels on a technical level. Hopefully, this hard work will pay off and viewers will be able to “see the difference” in the way the producer claims.
