Emily Blunt's Star-Studded Affair with Universal Continues!
It appears the star-studded trail Emily Blunt has been blazing in Hollywood isn't cooling down anytime soon. As reported by Deadline, the English actress is making waves once again, this time joining the ranks of Ryan Gosling in Universal Pictures' much-anticipated adaptation of the iconic TV series, The Fall Guy. Scheduled for a grand unveiling on March 1, 2024, this feature film is setting itself up to be the blockbuster event of the year.
From A Quiet Place to The Fall Guy: Blunt's Rise as an Action Star
It's no secret that Blunt has seamlessly transitioned from drama and romance to more action-oriented roles. "After action-heavy roles on films like Edge of Tomorrow and the A Quiet Place franchise, this pic gives Blunt another franchise-possible action pic she can sink her teeth into," as per the exclusive intel from Deadline. With her most recent thrill ride aboard the Jungle Cruise alongside Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and her current venture with Netflix's drama Pain Hustlers opposite Chris Evans, it's evident Blunt is solidifying her position as a versatile leading lady.
A Reunion with Universal and Stellar Collaborations Ahead
Notably, The Fall Guy isn't Blunt's sole association with Universal. The actress has just capped off her performance for the Christopher Nolan cinematic project, Oppenheimer, where she rubs shoulders with Hollywood biggies like Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr., and Matt Damon.
Behind the scenes of The Fall Guy, the directorial baton has been handed to David Leitch, with production duties shared by 87North, Entertainment 360, and a producing credit for Gosling himself. The script, crafted by Drew Pearce (known for his collaboration with Leitch on Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), holds the promise of cinematic brilliance.
Yet, while the plot remains under wraps, what we can bet on is a roller-coaster cinematic experience. After all, with the production all set to roll out in Australia this fall, and the incredible talent pool both in front of and behind the camera, how can The Fall Guy be anything short of spectacular?
