Netflix Will Film Back-To-Back Red Notice Sequels In 2023 - Report
The productions are expected to reunite Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, Ryan Reynolds, and Rawson Marshall Thurber.
After Netflix's recent success with the heist movie Red Notice, Deadline is reporting that writer, director, and producer Rawson Marshall Thurber is already writing two sequels that could begin back-to-back production in early 2023.
The streaming service has not provided an official comment, but an unnamed source told Deadline that Netflix aims to reunite the original's core starring cast of Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson, and Ryan Reynolds with Thurber. Beau Flynn will return to produce, alongside Johnson, Hiram Garcia, and Dany Garcia. Due to the preliminary nature of this report, no firm plot or other casting information has yet been announced.
In Red Notice, which hit Netflix on November 12, The Rock plays an FBI profiler who is tracking down an art thief (Gadot) and a conman (Reynolds). Originally set for a theatrical release before Netflix bought it, Red Notice has a reported budget of $200 million, which is the most ever for a Netflix movie, even eclipsing The Irishman. Reynolds and Gadot are making $20 million each on the movie, while The Rock stands to make much more given he's also a producer, according to Variety.
Thurber is also directing the movie version of The Division after David Leitch dropped out. The Division stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain.
