Can you believe it! Netflix gives the green light for two more back-to-back follow up movies of this comedy spy film.
Even though Red Notice didn’t end up on critics best-of reviews, with 37% rotten tomatoes and 37% score on Metacritic, its skyrocketing viewing hours of 328.8 million makes it good enough for Netflix to churn two more sequels.
The film’s director, Rawson Marshall Thurber already begun working on the screenplays and is expected to start filmmaking very soon. Netflix plans to kick off production early next year so, we expect the first sequel to drop probably towards the end of 2023 or early 2024.
The movie’s stars, Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds, will return with a fatter paycheck for the sequels, which says a lot considering they reaped an enormous $20 million for the first movie. Netflix spares no expense for quality!
Red Notice’s producers will get back onboard including, Thurber of Bad Version Productions, Beau Flynn and Scott Sheldon of Flynn Pictures Co., and Dany Hiram and Johnson Garcia of Seven Bucks Production.
Meanwhile, Gal Gadot is hard at work on her upcoming film Cleopatra. She tweeted in October last year that she would be working with Patty Jenkins, who directed Wonder Woman and screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis to portray Cleopatra in a way we’ve never seen before. Better than the 1963’s legendary Elizabeth Taylor’s Cleopatra? We’ll let you be the judge of that when the movie premieres.
Ryan Reynolds also has his work cut out, and an incredibly packed schedule. The following are his movies set to be released this year, next year and some still in production: The Adam Project (2022), Spirited (2022), Dragon’s Lair (2022), Imaginary Friends (2023), Clue, Deadpool 3, Everyday Parenting Tips and Futha Mucka.
Expect to see Dwayne Johnson in his breakout role as Black Adam in the DC comics film of the same name. Black Adam will be released in the U.S. on July 29 2022.
