Martin Campbell May Adapt TV’s THE FALL GUY

Director Martin Campbell may be bringing the 1980s action television series The Fall Guy to the big screen. The director is currently in discussions with producer Walter Parkes to helm an adaption of the Glen Larson- created series. Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are working on the screenplay.

The original show starred Lee Majors as a stunt man who moonlighted as a bounty hunter. The show also starred Douglas Barr and Heather Thomas.

Now before everyone blows a gasket over yet another proposed big screen adaption of a classic television series, let’s remember that this could very will never make it into production. For every The A-Team that actually makes it to cineplexes, there are plenty of Hogan’s Heroes, CHiPs and Welcome Back Kotter adaptations that die in development.
