The Four Horsemen are making the leap from the big screen to the live stage.

Lionsgate and The Works Entertainment announced Wednesday that they’ve teamed up to launch a touring magic show inspired by the Now You See Me movies. Now You See Me Live will kick off this November in China— a location featured prominently in the second film — showcasing never-before-seen illusions from four of the world’s premier magicians.

The show’s Horsemen are James More (Britain’s Got Talent), the Showman; Florian Sainvet (France’s Got Talent), the Manipulator; Sabine van Diemen (Holland’s Got Talent), the Escape Artist; and Enzo Weyne (France’s Got Talent), the Mentalist. The cast will be rounded out with a different region-specific host at each stop.

Released in 2013 and 2016, Now You See Me and Now You See Me 2 center on a quartet of Robin Hood-like illusionists who pull off seemingly impossible heists and give to the loot to their audiences.

“We know Now You See Me Live will give fans worldwide a new way to engage with a franchise they know and love, and we look forward to launching it in China, a region that has been overwhelmingly supportive of the films,” said Jenefer Brown, Lionsgate senior VP of global live and location-based entertainment, in a statement.
