Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds are teaming up to star in Netflix’s latest original film, Red Notice.
Director Rawson Marshall Thurber, who has previously worked with Johnson on Skyscraper and Central Intelligence, has doubled up on the star power for Red Notice. The action-thriller is centered around the pursuit of the most wanted art thief in the world.
Thurber penned the script based on his original pitch and will produce alongside Johnson, plus Beau Flynn for FlynnPictureCo, and Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia for Seven Bucks Productions. Scott Sheldon is also on board as Executive Producer.
Thurber says: “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.”
Johnson adds: “With Red Notice, our goal at Seven Bucks Productions was to break down traditional barriers and create a true global event for the audience. Netflix has illustrated that they are the perfect partners to accomplish this goal. I admire the ambition of Netflix to become one of the biggest movie studios in the world. Their original content generates critical acclaim and invites full collaboration on every level of production. Their unbridled enthusiasm for Red Notice is equally matched by their commitment to entertaining audiences on an international scale. As the landscape of movies, distribution and audience consumption continues to evolve, our Seven Bucks focus is to continue to find the best platform and partners to thrive in this ever changing environment. Director/writer Rawson Thurber has delivered a dynamic script that me and my co-stars and partners-in-heist, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds, can’t wait to shoot. The fun we’re gonna have making Red Notice, but more importantly – the fun the worldwide audience will have watching it in 190+ countries – all at the same moment.”
Stuber, head of Netflix Film, comments: “Rawson wrote a spectacular globetrotting action-adventure film. We can’t wait to bring this story and this Dream Team of movie stars, Dwayne, Ryan and Gal, to audiences around the world.”
Principal photography is set to begin in 2020.
