Dwayne Johnson And McG To Make "The Fall Guy" Movie

The Hollywood Reporter brings us the following:
The long-in-the-works movie version of 1980s TV series The Fall Guy is coming together once again, this time as a vehicle for Dwayne Johnson.
Johnson is in negotiations to star in a big-screen remake that McG is in talks to direct. Ashok Amritraj's Hyde Park Entertainment is financing the action film alongside WWE Studios. Writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Edward Miller (Thor, X-Men: First Class) executed the draft that attracted all the attention.
Amritraj is producing alongside Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, who have held the rights to the property for years. WWE Studios president Michael Luisi also is producing, while McG is in talks to produce as well. The film is being presented to foreign buyers at the Toronto Film Festival.
