Before a sequel is officially announced, imagine that the route of the heroes of the film “Red Notice” could cross that of … “Lupine”, the hero played by Omar Sy in the Netflix series!
Attention, what follows goes back in detail on the outcome of the film Red Notice. If you haven’t seen it yet, and don’t want to know anything about its content, then you are strongly recommended to stop reading this article now.
Now holder of the record for the best start for a Netflix film, Red Notice could soon be declined by the platform. As a reminder, the feature film signed Rawson Marshall Thurber ends in Paris, while the thieves trio made up of Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds face the Louvre pyramid.
If a sequel were to emerge, who knows if Netflix might not have the idea of bringing together one of its biggest hits with one of its most popular series? For example by crossing the road of the three heroes of Red Notice with that of Assane Diop, the protagonist played by Omar Sy in Lupine (from the adventures of the famous gentleman burglar Arsène Lupine).
Of course, this track was never mentioned by the film crew, nor by the French actor. However, the common subject of the two Netflix productions (high-profile burglaries) would greatly facilitate the credibility of such a crossover (in any case more than a meeting with the heroine of Emily in Paris). In addition, this could allow the platform to inaugurate an extended universe of its content (a Netflix Cinematic Universe, in short), paving the way for other encounters between original films and series of the platform.
Best Movie Starter on Netflix, Red Notice is also well on its way to becoming the most watched feature film in the history of the platform (record currently held by Chris Hemsworth’s film Tyler Rake). Remember also that Lupine is one of Netflix’s most popular series (when it was launched, it had even become the platform’s biggest non-English success, a record now held by Squid Game).
By one Red Notice 2 be officially ordered, who knows if this simple idea of a crossover with Lupine will not germinate in the heads of Netflix executives? There is no doubt that the public would be there for a meeting of these two franchises of gentleman burglars!
