It hasn’t been much time since the premiere of Red Notice, and whispers of a sequel are already circulating. The finale of Dwayne Johnson’s Netflix film Red Notice, wherein he co-stars alongside Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, leaves a cliffhanger that certainly hints there will be a Red Notice 2.
Red Notice garnered mediocre to poor reviews after its premiere. However, the film’s star-studded ensemble, along with the fast-paced storyline and exciting action scenes, made it a lovable flick by the fans. Red Notice cost Netflix $200 million to produce. Any need to shoot two sequels in a row may be less of a technological challenge and more about securing Johnson, Reynolds, and Gadot, who are among the busiest individuals in the industry.
We’ve got you caught if you’ve seen the film and want to discover if there would be a successor to Red Notice.
Red Notice 2 Possible Story
In the Red Notice, Johnson’s FBI agent John Hartley unwillingly teams up with a burglar called Nolan Booth (represented by Reynolds) to defeat companion burglar Sarah Black, aka The Bishop (played by Gadot), in a search for 3 historic relics. But it’s discovered at the conclusion of Red Notice that John Hartley isn’t an FBI profiler at all – he’s been collaborating with Black all along, and the two of them have been acting as The Bishop. Hartley has been enlisting the help of Booth to locate Cleopatra’s third egg.
However, despite their escapades, Hartley and Booth developed a personal relationship, and after they parted ways, Booth approaches Hartley and Black to push them on collaborating on some other task. Well before the titles play, the film switches to the three people strolling approaching the Louvre in Paris. Red Notice 2 is expected to pick off from where the last film ended.
Red Notice 2 Hints
A few hints regarding the sequel have been dropped off by the producer, writer, and actress of Red Notice. In an interview, producer Hiram Garcia revealed that writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber has indeed proposed a sequel plot. They’re definitely revolving about it right now, as franchises always are a smart option, but they want to go with the audience. The producers added that they will be prepared to go when the fans think it is suitable and appreciate it as much as they hope the fans would.
However, when questioned if Netflix has shown interest in a sequel considering the prospective franchise’s recognition, Garcia said that the streaming provider is definitely ready for the next sequel. Gadot stated in an interview that she would love to have the privilege of working with the boys again. Furthermore, writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber revealed to an Indian news site that the next movie could be based in India.
In the end, the success of the film determines whether or not a sequel will be made. Because Red Notice has the highest budget in Netflix history, it must perform exceedingly well in order to receive a sequel. If all goes as planned and a second picture is approved in the months ahead, the Red Notice sequel will be released subsequently.
