Netflix dropped Saturday a new trailer for the highly-anticipated movie “Red Notice”, starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot.
The movie was initially set to be distributed by Universal but got snatched by the giant streamer, becoming its most expensive movie ever.
“Red Notice” is arguably the biggest feature commitment by the streaming giant at $130M. Universal and Legendary originally landed the project in a multi-studio auction, with Johnson paid $20M.
“Red Notice” revolves around FBI’s top profiler John Hartley (Johnston) who attempts to hunt down and capture the world’s most wanted art thief, ‘The Bishop’ (Gal Gadot) after an Interpol-issued Red Notice — the highest level warrant to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted.
He finds himself involved in the middle of a daring heist and forced to partner with the infamous con man and fellow art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds).
The movie is written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, and also features Ritu Arya and Chris Diamantopolous.
Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia are producing the project for Seven Bucks Productions, while Beau Flynn for FlynnPictureCo. Thurber is also producing the movie.
The movie marks the third collaboration between Thurber and Johnson after “Central Intelligence” and “Skyscraper”.
It was initially set to be released on November 13th, 2020 but due to the coronavirus lockdown, it was rescheduled to 2021.
“Red Notice” is set to debut on Netflix on November 12.
