Dwayne Johnson is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet right now. Even he is not immune to the siren song of streaming. His first movie scale production for a streaming provider is Red Notice. Production has started today as his ever active Instagram tells us.
Rawson Marshall Thurber, who directed Johnson in Skyscraper, is in the big chair. A Red Notice is an Interpol term attached to an alert to hunt down and capture globally sought criminals. The world’s most wanted.
In this movie that criminal is apparently an art-thief.
He is joined by one hell of a cast for a streaming venture. Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot co-star and the budget is reportedly $150million. It’s billed as a globe trotting heist movie and shot on location around the world.
Shooting will wrap before the mid-point of 2020 and he will then move directly onto Black Adam for WB and DC.
Look for a Netflix release some time in 2021.
