Dwayne Johnson To Play "The Fall Guy"

Dwayne Johnson is in negotiations to star and McG is in talks to direct a film adaptation of the 1980s TV series "The Fall Guy" at Hyde Park Entertainment and WWE Studios.

The early 1980s series starred Lee Majors as a Hollywood stunt man who supplemented his income doing bounty hunter work.

Often joining him were his sidekick cousin (Douglas Barr) and a female stunt actress (Heather Thomas).

Zack Stentz and Ashley Edward Miller ("Thor," "X-Men: First Class") penned the script, while Ashok Amritraj, Michael Luisi, Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will produce.

"Casino Royale" director Martin Campbell and actor Nicolas Cage were attached to a previous version of the project which didn't come together.
