Wrestler-turned-movie star Dwayne Johnson is in talks to bring The Fall Guy back to life in a new all-action movie.

The actor and director McG are both close to signing on to revive the 1980s Tv series, which starred Lee Majors as a stuntman-turned-bounty hunter, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Fall Guy movie has been on Hollywood's slate for years and, at one point, was a project with Nicolas Cage attached and Martin Campbell directing.

The latest adaptation is currently being shopped to potential distributors at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada.
