Stunt man to perform 100ft free fall live on Channel 4

On Sunday 18 December, Hollywood stuntman Dave Grant will make the 100ft 'Leap of Faith' and free fall at a speed of over 50mph live on Channel 4 to promote the new Assassin's Creed cinema release on 1 January 2017.

The bold jump pays homage to the protagonist's 'Leap of Faith' jump in the film, where Michael Fassbender's character free falls from the top of high structures. 

The ad break has been created to celebrate the film’s director Justin Kurzel's decision for real life stunts to be used in place of CGI wherever possible in the film.

The series is written and produced by Dan Fogleman - creator of Crazy Stupid Love, and follows the lives of seemingly random individuals, many of whom share the same birthday, whose lives cross in curious ways.

Mandy Moore (A Walk to Remember), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, Gilmore Girls) and Sterling K. Brown (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) star in the series, alongside Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson and Ron Cephas Jones.
