The Rock has unearthed one '80s TV show that hasn't been turned into a movie yet.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dwayne Johnson is in talks to team up with director McG for a big-screen version of "The Fall Guy." The ABC series, which ran from 1981 to 1986, starred Lee Majors as a stuntman named Colt Seavers who does bounty hunter work on the side, with a little help from his sidekick cousin and a stuntwoman/romantic interest.

The project has been simmering for years, with Nicolas Cage attached at one point. But the new team has a lot going for them: McG has successfully translated a TV show to film before, with 2000's "Charlie's Angels," and The Rock played a bounty hunter in "The Rundown."

With "The Fall Guy," Johnson's already-full plate becomes even more crowded. He's currently filming "Hercules: The Thracian Wars" with director Brett Ratner, and then he has "Fast & Furious 7" and possibly "Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon" up next.
