But I really can't imagine this working out well. The Fall Guy, like many of the popular 80s TV shows worked because of a great formula. I can't see that translating to the big screen and a modern audience. It found a fine balance between ridiculous and fun, it had charisma and charm. The problem with creating movie versions of programmes like this is most of what worked on the small screen is lost in the cinema to over-the-top action and effects. And it'll likely star Hollywood regulars looking for self promotion and cheap publicity. The movie will inevitably contain the most iconic elements from the show but what worked in that format will just come across as contrived. Or probably just pathetic! I really can't see this faring any better than the A-Team film. What's next on Hollywood's shopping list? Manimal? Automan? Street Hawk?
