Netflix paid a lot for the film Red Notice. The film with Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot was well received by customers and streamed diligently. Now two more parts are to come.

The streaming market leader Netflix is ​​always on the lookout for the next successful franchise and could with “Red Notice“Found what I was looking for. The film had once been bought from Universal, who actually wanted to bring it to the cinema. Well stands, loud Deadline determined that two more strips should follow, which should be rotated in one piece from the beginning of 2023. The exact start of production naturally also depends on the busy schedules of the three stars Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, who want to be coordinated. Director and screenwriter Rawson Marshall Thurber is said to be already writing the scripts. With 364 million hours streamed (within the first 28 days), the film currently ranks first among the most popular English-language film productions by Netflix.

Netflix itself hasn’t commented on the sequel plans, but it’s loud Deadline-Sources to assume that the trio will be expanded to include more characters and then something like your own “Ocean’s Eleven“Crew gathered. The budget of the original is said to have been more than $ 200 million, which of course also includes the fees of the leading actors. At that time it was the largest sum that Netflix invested in a film, now it could be “The Gray Man“By Joe and Anthony Russo with Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans but are slightly ahead.

Beau Flynn will again be co-producing via Flynn Pictures and Johnson, Hiram Garcia and Dany Garcia from Seven Bucks Productions, the production company of The Rock, are also involved. Meanwhile, Thurber is co-producing via Bad Version Productions.

Shooting two films in a row happens from time to time, the best example is probably Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings“Trilogy, but also James Cameron’s”Avatar“-Sequels, „Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame“Or films of the series”The Hunger Games” and “Pirates of the Caribbean“Came about that way. So far, however, these have always been classic studios and not necessarily streaming services, which of course have a very great hunger for content.

Here is the trailer for “Red Notice“:
