“Red Notice” has been available on Netflix since November 12. Will action comedy Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds get a sequel? Some members of the team are already starting.
Three stars for Red Notice
Red Notice is a big new production from Netflix. Bringing together Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan reynolds, the film stars the first as Agent John Hartley, trapped by the second who plays the art thief Sarah Black. To prove his innocence, he’s going to have to collaborate with the latest, who plays the world’s second most wanted criminal: Nolan Booth. Together they will try to stop Sarah Black who wishes to seize the three eggs offered by Caesar to Cleopatra. Inestimable works that will bring him a small fortune.
The film wants to be a light and entertaining action comedy which above all leaves room for his trio to shine. The three performers are happy and you can feel it on the screen.
A suite in sight?
The end of Red Notice leaves a door wide open to a suite. It must be said that when we manage to bring together such a trio, we can only want to reproduce the feat by launching a saga. We imagine that Netflix immediately thought about it by launching the production of Red Notice. It will nevertheless be necessary to wait to see the reaction of subscribers so that the streaming platform launches or not a second film. However, we already know that some people concerned would be keen to come back.
This is the case of Gal gadot, who was recently speaking on the film to Today. When the media asked him if a Red Notice 2 was possible, it did not go all the way:
I hope so. I love and wish I could work with them again.
The actress therefore keeps an open door to another film with her two co-stars. This is also the case with Dany Garcia, producer of the film and therefore more able to decide whether or not a sequel should see the light of day. This time it is at the microphone of Variety that the latter has expressed itself. She explained that at Seven Bucks Productions (the company behind the film) the term “franchise” is often mentioned. But she remains cautious in specifying that it is always necessary to wait to “see how it goes“, so how the film is received and if the public is asking for a sequel.
No doubt that in case of success Netflix will give the green light for another film. We should therefore have the answer in the coming weeks. The film has been available on the platform since November 12.
