Red Notice 2: The Rock’s schedule delays shooting until next year.

For those eagerly awaiting the sequel to the action-packed Netflix film, Red Notice, we have some news that might make you groan. The strikes plaguing the entertainment industry have thrown a wrench into the production schedule, and it looks like we may not see Red Notice 2 until fall 2024. But hey, at least we have some hilarious bloopers from the first film to keep us entertained in the meantime!

Netflix has been a game changer in the movie industry, and their exclusive films have seen great success. From limited theatrical releases to big names like Martin Scorsese, the streaming giant has been making waves. So, it’s no surprise that fans are eagerly anticipating the continuation of the Red Notice saga.

However, Scott Stuber, the head of Netflix, recently dropped the news that we may have to wait a bit longer for Red Notice 2. The reason? None other than Dwayne Johnson’s jam-packed schedule. According to Stuber, Johnson’s commitment to the delayed production of Moana has created a bit of a scheduling headache. Stuber humorously revealed, “I think Dwayne [Johnson] probably has the most complex schedule because Moana got pushed because of the strike, so that’s probably the big one that we’ve got to work around.” We can just picture Johnson juggling Moana alongside dodging bullets and cracking jokes with Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot.

Now, the initial plan for the Red Notice franchise was to film sequels 2 and 3 back-to-back after the first film became the biggest movie in Netflix history. But with the current situation, it looks like those plans may have to be shuffled around. Stuber mentioned, “Aspirationally, I’d like to aim for the end of next year to start, like the fall of ‘24, but I gotta make sure that everybody’s ready.” We can only imagine the coordination required to align the schedules of three global superstars!

But fear not, Red Notice fans! Stuber also hinted that they are working on getting the script for the sequel soon. He emphasized the importance of maintaining the high bar set by the first film, especially in terms of plot and storytelling. With the talent of Rawson Marshall Thurber at the helm, we’re sure the sequel will be worth the wait. Stuber emphasized, “We have three of the biggest global stars in the world, so yes, you know, we want it back, but we want to get it right.”

So, while the delay might be a bummer, it’s clear that the team behind Red Notice 2 is committed to delivering an epic sequel. And hey, in the meantime, we can always re-watch the first film and imagine the hilarious behind-the-scenes antics of Johnson, Reynolds, and Gadot. Who knows, maybe we’ll even get some sneak peeks into their chaotic schedules!

While we may have to wait a bit longer for Red Notice 2, it’s safe to say that the anticipation for this highly-anticipated sequel is only growing. So mark your calendars for fall 2024, and let’s all collectively cross our fingers for smooth sailing in Dwayne Johnson’s schedule!
