Netflix’s Red Notice is the latest action film that stars Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Gal Gadot on a heart-throbbing mission. The movie is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, and the movie didn’t just see the biggest opening in the history of any film on Netflix, but it also went on to become the most-watched film on the streaming platform. Despite the weak reviews by critics, fans seem to be in love with every bit of it. Interestingly, for many fans, there’s even a chance for a sequel. While talking to Collider, Thurber revealed that he does have some ideas.
Red Notice 2 On The Cards
“I’m not working on the script for a sequel…I’ve certainly been noodling with what I would do for a follow-up and not to telltale out of school but yeah Netflix…we’ve been having those conversations,” the director shared.
Thurber even spoke to the Empire Magazine about working with the whole star-studded cast of Red Notice. He said, “I mean, talk about charisma, so what does happen when you get Deadpool, Wonder Woman, and Black Adam in the immediate vicinity of one another? I feel very, very fortunate. It’s a little bit like directorial cheating, having all three of them together in the same frame. Chemistry is just not a function of writing or even directing – it’s a function of casting. You either have it or you don’t. And those guys have something special.”
Earlier, when it was revealed that Red Notice has been streamed by 150 million people, Johnson and Thurber took to social media to celebrate the feat.
“Wow ???????? me and @rawsonthurber (writer, director, creator of RED NOTICE????) were TRULY SURPRISED, coming home to this tonight from our beautiful families!!!,” Johnson wrote. “????????CONGRATULATIONS ????????

Red Notice sees Johnson’s FBI agent character in pursuit of Reynolds, who is an art thief.
“[Dwayne plays an] FBI profiler who specializes in art crime,” Thurber explained. “He is on the hunt for Ryan Reynolds, who plays the most wanted art thief in the world. Gal Gadot plays this mysterious figure in the art world. As the say… high-jinks ensue.”
Red Notice is streaming now on Netflix.
