Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to …And Extra, our no-frills, zero B.S. guidebook to when and the place you can enjoy impending movies and exhibits, and everything else you could perhaps stand to know.)

Ryan Gosling is back again, toddler, and, so far, his return has been … Very well, I is not going to lie, a tad underwhelming. But worry not! For those not interested in the sequel to “The Gray Man” that Netflix could or might not ever get around to creating (it would not be the initial time the company purchased a follow-up that by no means truly came to move), the Gos has also got Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie,” a “Wolfman” remake with his “Blue Valentine” and “The Put Over and above the Pines” director Derek Cianfrance, and other intriguing assignments lined up.

One more product on Gosling’s to-do checklist is “The Fall Dude,” a film primarily based on the Tv collection of the very same identify (which aired on ABC from 1981 to 1986) about Hollywood stunt-performers who moonlight as bounty hunters. Fittingly more than enough, the film is currently being helmed by stunt-qualified-turned-filmmaker David Leitch, director of “Deadpool 2” and, most not too long ago, “Bullet Prepare.” Leitch is identified for mixing motion with humor in films that often concentration on quippy antiheroes, which is a small disconcerting considering that that description additional or significantly less sums up “The Grey Gentleman.”

Potentially Leitch will pay for Gosling the freedom to thoroughly tap into his comedic capabilities the way Shane Black did on “The Nice Guys”? That remains to be observed, but here’s almost everything we know for sure about “The Drop Person” so far.

The Tumble Dude launch date and the place to enjoy it

Universal Shots has scheduled “The Slide Guy” to open solely in theaters on March 1, 2024, forward of its arrival on the house media market place. It is really a person of a handful of reside-action movies now slated to bow that thirty day period, with “A Quiet Location: Day A single” and the untitled “Godzilla vs. Kong” sequel set to arrive at the massive display screen in excess of the two weeks following. March 2024 will then near out with the animated “Spider-Male: Past the Spider-Verse,” making it a reasonably fast paced thirty day period for tentpoles of the franchise selection.

As for streaming, the simple fact “The Slide Dude” is becoming distributed by Common signifies it will eventually become accessible to stream at no extra cost for Peacock subscribers. Its box office environment effectiveness will figure out no matter whether “The Slide Man” immediately would make its way onto other online video-on-demand from customers products and services (namely Vudu) inside a make any difference of a several weeks or hangs all-around in theaters only for a longer interval of time.

The Tumble Dude forged and crew

David Leitch will direct “The Slide Man” and develop with Kelly McCormick as a result of their 87North label, drawing from a script by Drew Pearce. The latter, who is also executive creating, earlier had a hand in crafting “Iron Male 3” and “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Country,” on leading of co-crafting “Fast & Furious Provides: Hobbs & Shaw” (which Leitch also directed).

Plot facts are less than wraps for the time getting, but it stands to reason Ryan Gosling is starring in the film as Colt Seavers, a stunt-person — played by Lee Majors in the primary Tv set present — who utilizes his stunt know-how to just take down crooks even though working a facet gig as a bounty hunter (hey, in this day and age, who wouldn’t stand to advantage from a next job, right?). For each a report from Deadline, Emily Blunt is now signed on to star opposite Gosling in the film, presumably as Colt’s fellow stunt-woman Jody Banks (Heather Thomas’ job in the Television series) or the equal.

As you probably cottoned on to before, I am not a substantial Leitch enthusiast, but the prospect of a buddy action movie starring Gosling and Blunt absolutely has prospective. Fingers crossed, this movie will give us the future excellent A-lister/Gosling pairing.
