Dwayne Johnson-led Red Notice to resume production next month
Nearly four months after production had been temporarily suspended on Netflix’s star-studded heist thriller Red Notice last March, Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to announce that production is officially scheduled to resume its filming in mid-September.
In his 5-minute video post which you can check out below, Johnson has also shared Netflix and the producers’ careful decision on how to strictly implement safety protocols on the set including seeking for advice from the NBA about their current strategies or approach on how to efficiently make their work environment safe and healthy.
Red Notice is described as a as a globe-trotting, action-comedy heist thriller designed as a three-hander between Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds. In the film, Johnson plays an Interpol agent tasked with capturing the most wanted art thief in the world. “Red Notice” refers to the highest and most serious of Interpol notices (there are eight) and concerns the arrest of wanted criminals. Meanwhile, Gal Gadot is to portray role of the world’s greatest art thief with Ryan Reynolds playing the world’s greatest con-man.
The film will be written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, who have worked with Johnson in Central Intelligence and Skyscraper. Last year, Netflix won the distributing rights to the film in a competitive bidding war after Universal Pictures reportedly didn’t committed with all of filmmakers’ deal.
Red Notice will be produced by the returning Skyscraper team, including Beau Flynn (Rampage, San Andreas) for his Flynn Picture Co.; Johnson, Dany Garcia (Jumanji, Ballers) and Hiram Garcia (San Andreas, Central Intelligence) for their Seven Bucks Productions; and Thurber for his Bad Version, Inc. Wendy Jacobson (Rampage, San Andreas) executive produces.
