The Rock is getting back to work. Dwayne Johnson’s “Red Notice,” an action and comedy film set at Netflix and co-starring Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, will resume production likely in mid-September, The Rock announced Sunday evening.
Johnson said that he and the “Red Notice” crew will be part of a “quarantined bubble” and that he’s even been in touch with the NBA for guidance on how they’ve approached the league’s restart in a similar bubble situation.
“Like so many of us here in the U.S. and around the world – getting back can be a tough decision that work requires real consideration and strategic planning around best health practices and safety measures,” Johnson said on Instagram. “I’m confident in our safety strategy and execution, but we’ll also be fluid and amenable to best practice changes on the fly.”
Johnson did not provide any specific details for how shooting will resume but did say that it was a “tough” decision after remaining quarantined with his family and his high-risk mother.
Netflix had no additional comment.
“Red Notice” centers around the pursuit of the most wanted art thief in the world, and it’s directed and written by “Skyscraper” director Rawson Marshall Thurber.
It will be produced by Beau Flynn through his FlynnPictureCo. with Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia through their Seven Bucks Production banner, along with Thurber. Scott Sheldon will executive produce.
