One of the formula features of the classic '80s television series The Fall Guy was its "case of the week" format in which stuntman Colt Seavers (Lee Majors) chased down criminals in his side gig as a bounty hunter. While Universal Pictures' theatrical adaptation of The Fall Guy, starring Ryan Gosling as a modern day version of Seavers, doesn't include the bounty hunter side hustle, the character is tasked by producer Gail Meyer (Hannah Waddingham) to track down missing actor Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).

Before they can cuff Ryder, he turns and runs, right into a cluster of special effects explosives that ignites and literally obliterates Ryder in his tracks. The immediate reaction is given to Ryder's long suffering assistant, Alma Milan(Stephanie Hsu), who wastes no time calling Jason Momoa's team... solving the mystery of how he replaced Ryder in the final cut of Jody Moreno's (Emily Blunt) directorial debut, Metalstorm
