‘The Fall Guy’ Live Stunt Show Added to Universal Studios Waterworld Attraction for Limited Time


Universal Studios Hollywood will host a new live show, “The Fall Guy Stuntacular Pre-Show,” inspired by 87North’s new film “The Fall Guy,” starring Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt. The live show, a part of the theme park’s Waterworld attraction, will open April 27 and end May 19.

The entertainment performance features an original storyline that provides a peek behind the curtain of how stunt performances are designed and brought to life and will use the existing Waterworld set.

In a promotional video shared Thursday, “Fall Guy” actor Hannah Waddingham presents the live-show idea as a pitch to Gosling, Blunt and David Leitch, the director of the movie and a former stuntman. Leitch says “I smell a live show!” after seeing the still of Blunt and Gosling riding a motorcycle next to a shark and a bus full of Universal Studio goers.

The show is produced by 87North Productions, a production and action design company founded by Leitch and producer Kelly McCormick. The company has previously produced films like “Bullet Train,” “Fast & Furious Present: Hobbs & Shaw,” “Deadpool 2,” “Atomic Blonde,” “Nobody,” “Violent Night” and “John Wick.”

“We make movies to give audiences an experience, and what better way to amplify 87North’s brand of action storytelling than to evolve into live events,” Leitch said in a statement announcing the stunt show. “We are so thankful to our partners at Universal who embraced our ideas and gave us the platform to do something really fun and immersive with ‘The Fall Guy.’”

“The Fall Guy” stars Gosling as Colt Seavers, a stuntman searching for the missing star of a mega-budget studio tentpole. Inspired by the 1980s TV series of the same name, the film also stars Blunt, Winston Duke, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Waddingham and Stephanie Hsu. It opens in theaters May 3.
