Dwayne Johnson & Gal Gadot’s ‘Red Notice’ Adds Ryan Reynolds to Cast; Moves From Universal to Netflix

Jul 8, 2019


Netflix has taken over the long-gestating ‘Red Notice’ film from Universal, and has added Ryan Reynolds to the cast. He joins Dwayne Johnson (‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,’ ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw’) and Gal Gadot (‘Wonder Woman,’ ‘Justice League’).

Reynolds was recently in Rob Marshall’s ‘Pok√©mon Detective Pikachu,’ voicing the titular character. He is popular for his performance as another titular character, in Tim Miller’ Deadpool’ and David Leitch’s ‘Deadpool 2.’ He has several upcoming movies in the works, with Michael Bay’s ‘6 Underground,’ releasing this fall, Shawn Levy’s ‘Free Guy,’ releasing July 3, 2020, and Patrick Hughes’ ‘The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard,’ which has no date.

Rawson Marshall Thurber (‘Central Intelligence,’ ‘Skyscraper’) serves as writer and director on the globetrotting action heist thriller. The film holds a budget of around $130 million, making it one of the most expensive Netflix productions yet.

Further, filming will begin January 2020, likely in Italy. This will affect DC’ ‘Black Adam’ solo film in some way, be it either pushing production up or back.
