Johnson And Reynolds’ Friendship

Taking on Instagram to wish his friend, Reynolds expressed his bittersweet sentiments about Red Notice. He sarcastically stated how this year they successfully fulfilled their lifelong dream. And the said dream being – “shooting exactly half a film called RED NOTICE before being promptly shut down.” He jokingly also inferred if they hadn’t “spent 90 percent” of their time laughing, they might have finished it on time.

Let’s get back to work. This is a fun one.”
