Dwayne Johnson warns moviegoers of upcoming reveal of Red Notice, Johnson’s big-budget Netflix action comedy starring Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds. At a reported cost of over $ 200 million, star and producer Johnson touted his original film. Central intelligence and Skyscraper director Rawson Marshall Thurber as “the streamer’s biggest engagement ever in a feature film”. the Red Notice Price tag exceeds reported budgets of Netflix-led Martin Scorsese Irish ($ 160 million and over), the star of Will Smith Shiny ($ 90 million) and the Reynolds and Michael Bay actor 6 Underground ($ 150 million).
“Red Notice is the biggest investment @Netflix has made in a movie so far – and our hard work is to make sure we make that investment for our Netflix partners – and deliver an awesome movie for our global audience, “wrote Johnson in an Instagram post with photos of the set of Red Notice. Johnson then teased a “big release date announcement coming very soon”, adding the hashtag “vacation 2021”.
In April, Netflix co-CEO and chief content officer Ted Sarandos confirmed Red Notice would come out in the fourth quarter of the year. Netflix has already released Kurt Russell’s Santa Claus movie The Christmas Chronicles and Irish streaming during the Thanksgiving holidays in 2018 and 2019, respectively, signaling a potential drop in late November for Red Notice.
“In the world of international crime, a RED OPINION issued by Interpol is a global alert to hunt down and capture the world’s most wanted,” Johnson wrote on Instagram announcing the start of filming in early 2020. Interpol’s agent Johnson, Rusty is the “World’s Greatest Stalker”, who is reunited with the World’s Greatest Art Thief (Wonder woman star Gadot) and the biggest con artist in the world (dead Pool star Reynolds).
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the Georgia-shot Red Notice finished production in November after implementing what Johnson called “the most aggressive Covid health and safety measures in all of Hollywood.”
With Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, Ryan Reynolds, Ritu Arya and Chris Diamantopoulos, Red Notice airs on Netflix later in 2021.
