The streaming giant Netflix is planning two sequels to its recent hit ‘Red Notice‘, starring Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds.
The movie, which premiered on Netflix in November last year, was directed by writer-filmmaker Rawson Marshall Thurber, who previously collaborated with Johnson on movies like ‘Central Intelligence’ and ‘Skyscraper’.
According to PTI, Thurber expects to resume filmmaking duties and plans to shoot the two sequels simultaneously.
According to the streaming service, production on the sequels is planned for 2023 because the cast members have busy schedules.
The two new movies are yet to be officially announced by Netflix.
‘Red Notice’ featured Johnson as the FBI’s top profiler, Gadot as the world’s most wanted art thief and Reynolds as the greatest conman the world has ever seen. They are all brought together for a daring heist that turns the world on its head.
Though the movie received mixed reviews, according to Netflix, it clocked 328.8 million viewing hours on the streaming platform, beating the record previously held by Sandra Bullock’s 2018 thriller ‘Bird Box’ at 282 million.
The film was produced by Beau Flynn through his Flynn Pictures Co. banner, alongside Johnson, Hiram Garcia and Dany Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions. Thurber also produced through his Bad Version Productions and Flynn Picture Co’s Scott Sheldon served as an executive producer.
