According to the blurb:
“A battered and past-his-prime stuntman finds himself working on a movie set with the star for whom he doubled long ago and who replaced him. The star then goes missing.”
Principal photography began in October 2022 in Sydney, Australia, at the Disney Studios Australia in Moore Park, Sydney. On October 20, 2022, images of the production filming night shoots in the Goulburn Street parking lot in Sydney appeared in the media with Gosling sporting long hair and a beard. On January 22, 2023, the Sydney Harbour Bridge was closed for several daytime hours for filming of scenes involving Ryan Gosling. Principal photography was completed on March 2, 2023.
The Fall Guy will be released on March 1st 2024.
