The producers of Red Notice 2 Netflix gave us an update on that. Also, we found out that the writing of part 3 is coming along with the sequel. Collider couldn’t pass up the opportunity to ask Beau Flynn and Hiram Garcia, the super-producers behind many of the blockbusters you’ve seen in recent years, including this month’s Black Adam, about what lies ahead. The best sources for updates are Garcia and Flynn, especially with the Dwayne Johnson projects. Johnson has directed a number of movies over the years, including Hercules, Baywatch, Rampage, as well as the NBC series Young Rock. We already knew sequels were in the works.
Netflix’s Red Notice 2 movie was discussed in an interview
Collider couldn’t resist the opportunity to talk about the Netflix sensation of Red Notice 2 during the interview. In January, the streaming service purchased two sequels simultaneously to the film starring Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) (Free Guy). The Flynns state that the sequels are ramping up and that a new draft of the script will be coming to them “very soon”:
“Well, we have a ‘Red Notice 2 Netflix’ script and almost 3. The plan is, hopefully, if Hiram and I get our way, we’ll do those movies one after the other. But it’s going to be all about the scripts and how we feel and how Dwayne and Gal and Ryan feel about them. But that franchise is great and obviously Netflix really wants it, and Rawson is committed.”
“Yes, Rawson (Marshall Thurber) is working, and we were talking to him about it the other day. He’s into it and that’s his baby. Therefore, he has been ground. We are excited to be able to participate and see a new draft that is about to be delivered to us very soon.” he added she.
Filming back-to-back sequels saves time and money, both of which are crucial for this type of production. Filming both at the same time is also a good method for having to organize the impossible schedules of three of the world’s best-known actors for sequels just once. In late 2021, Red Notice debuted on Netflix and soon rose to the top of the list of the most popular movies ever. Netflix reportedly spent $200 million on the action comedy.

It looks like everything is going according to plan, as the streamer already planned to start production in 2023 when the sequels were first revealed. Meanwhile, the three leads continue to work on their high-profile projects. Johnson will make her DC debut this month in Black Adam, Reynolds is currently working on Deadpool 3, and Gadot is gearing up to play none other than Cleopatra in an upcoming biopic.
The Netflix movie Red Notice 2 is a sequel to Red Notice. Netflix acquired the first film for distribution. This is despite Universal Pictures originally intending to release it. On November 5, 2021, a limited theatrical run of the film began. On November 12, 2021, it was made available for digital streaming on the platform, where it received mixed reviews from reviewers. The film became the most-watched movie on Netflix in both its opening weekend and 28 days after its release. Additionally, it rose to the fifth most-watched movie of 2021. There are two upcoming sequels coming simultaneously. Johnson, Reynolds, Gadot and Thurber hoped to return.
