Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot Heist Film <i>Red Notice</i> Moves to Netflix, Adds Ryan Reynolds

The Rock, Deadpool and Wonder Woman are joining forces for the forthcoming heist film Red Notice, and now, the film is set for release via Netflix, the streamer announced late Monday.

Originally set for a Nov. 13, 2020, release, Red Notice is a big-budget international heist film that has the trio in pursuit of a major art thief. Now that the film has jumped production ships to Netflix, the release date is uncertain, but filming is set to begin in 2020. Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence) is still attached to direct and write the film.

“I’m beyond thrilled to be making Red Notice with Scott Stuber and Netflix—a company that believes in filmmakers and big ideas for a global audience,” Thurber said in a statement.

Flynn Picture Co.’s Beau Flynn will produce with Seven Buck Productions’ Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia, as well as Thurber for Bad Version, Inc. Scott Sheldon will executive produce.

Accompanying the production change, it’s been announced that Ryan Reynolds will be joining Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson in the cast. Reynolds is currently working on Michael Bay’s action-thriller film Six Underground for Netflix.

“Rawson wrote a spectacular globetrotting action-adventure film,” Scott Stuber, Netflix’s film head, said in a statement. “We can’t wait to bring this story and this Dream Team of movie stars, Dwayne, Ryan and Gal, to audiences around the world.”

With a reported budget between $125 million and $150 million, the film is set to be one of Netflix’s most big-budget films to date, according to THR. The only other contending big-budget film is the forthcoming Bay flick with Reynolds.

Johnson also has another movie coming out with Netflix, as well. John Henry and the Statesman will see Johnson portray Henry, the mythic African-American steeldriver from American folklore, as he assembles a team of popular folk figures from history. The film will also reunite Johnson with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle director Jake Kasdan.
