“Stuntman”

“Stuntman”

“Stuntman” chronicles the highs and lows of veteran Hollywood stuntman, Eddie Braun as he attempts what many argue is the most dangerous stunt in cinematic history. Following in the footsteps of his childhood idol, Evel Knievel, Braun reflects on having survived multiple car crashes, explosions and death-defying leaps over the course of his 30+ year career in film and television. Now, in his mid-50s and contemplating retirement, Braun decides to cap off an extraordinary career by recreating Evel Knievel’s infamous unsuccessful Snake River Canyon rocket jump. In 1974, Knievel narrowly escaped death as his rocket crashed within the canyon’s walls and famously vowed never to do the jump again because it was simply too dangerous.

Without any industry backing, Braun pours his life savings into his dream of jumping the Snake River Canyon and enlists the help of Scott Truax, the son of the NASA rocket scientist who built Evel’s original steam-powered rocket. Together, the two embark on an emotional journey to clear the Snake River Canyon, redeem the Truax family name and honor the legacy of Evel Knievel.

Dwayne Johnson & Dany Garcia’s Seven Bucks Productions joins Driven Pictures as executive producers on the film.
