Update September 13, 2020: Ryan Reynolds Shares COVID-19 Test Experience As Production Restarts on Netflix’s ‘Red Notice’
Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot are heading back to work.
After taking a COVID-19 nose swab test, the Deadpool actor tweeted he has returned to production for his upcoming Georgia-filmed production, Red Notice. The actor shared photos of him undergoing the Coronavirus COVID-19 swab test on Saturday.
“The Covid Test is quick and easy. The doctor places the swab up your nose, just deep enough to tickle your childhood memories and then it’s over,” he joked. “No matter what you say to him, he won’t buy you dinner first.”
This news comes after Netflix announced production would shut down over Coronavirus safety concerns for Red Notice, which also stars Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson.
Gal Gadot also shared a similar social media post confirming Red Notice production has started. She wrote she is “getting ready to head back to the Red Notice set.”

Update August 3, 2020: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson announced his production company will resume filming the Netflix film ‘Red Notice’ in a “quarantined bubble” next month.
Johnson’s production team, Seven Bucks Production, and Netflix are working together to create a “quarantined bubble” for the filmmakers and crew, the actor revealed on Saturday in a message and video via his Instagram account.
Johnson says he is receiving advice from the NBA to create a bubble for the production team.
“They’ve been great in terms of sharing with us what has been effective with their bubble,” Johnson said. “And we are able to implement that in our bubble.”
He also acknowledged that the road back to work will be “tricky.” “There’s no blueprint here, we’re in the beta phase every step of the way,” Johnson said.
Johnson did not reveal how long people are expected to work and live in the quarantined bubble.

Like so many of us here in the US and around the world – getting back can be a tough decision that work requires real consideration and strategic planning around best health practices and safety measures. I’m happy to announce our RED NOTICE production will resume shooting next month in mid September. Thank you to our tremendous partners at NETFLIX who’ve joined us shoulder to shoulder to provide the safest and most aggressive “quarantined bubble” for our production crew as possible. I’m confident in our safety strategy and execution, but we’ll also be fluid and amenable to best practice changes on the fly. Stay healthy and stay disciplined, my friends as you all get back to work. Good luck! And to my RED NOTICE crew – the hardest workers in the room, mount up – because we’re going back to work. See you on set. DJ @sevenbucksprod @flynnpictureco @netflix
This news comes after Tyler Perry, successfully filmed an entire season of his BET series ‘Sistas’ in a quarantined bubble in Atlanta, Georgia. After wrapping production on his BET series “Sistas” without a COVID-19 during the two-week shoot. Now, production for “The Oval” is ramping up as the cast and crew are setting up to arrive at Tyler Perry Studios on Thursday. Tyler Perry says there is not much he plans to do differently this time around, especially when it comes to wearing masks and around the campus.
“I made sure that the cast and crew and everybody wore their masks when they weren’t on set because I do know for a fact that masks help stop the spread — scientifically, I know that,” Perry tells Variety. “And everybody adhered to that, even though we were all testing negative. I just didn’t want someone to be incubating with [COVID-19] for three to 12 days, and we not know it.”
Tyler Perry and the production crew for “Sistas” wore their masks for 12 to 14 hours at a time while shooting the 22-episode season.
“Listen, I was the mask police. Every time I saw something I was screaming about it,” Perry says. “It’s summer in Georgia so credit to the crew — it’s burning up here and they were still doing the right thing. So, I gave a lot more breaks for people to have water because we had a couple people that got dehydrated from all the heat, and the water breaks were actually the ‘breath break’ where you can pull your mask down, drink some water and get some fresh air.”
Original Post: March 10, 2020: According to reports, Netflix has greenly and set a 2020 production start for the upcoming movie ‘Red Notice.’ The film is a global action heist movie and stars Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds. It is is an international action thriller centered around the pursuit of the most wanted art thief in the world.
Deadline reports, ‘Red Notice’, was one of the biggest movies brokered last year. The deal includes a $20 million salary for Johnson and an eight-figure agreement for the movie’s director. As a result, Netflix now has a production budget in the $130 million range.
Netflix and Johnson confirmed the deal had this to say:
“With Red Notice, our goal at Seven Bucks Productions was to break down traditional barriers and create a true global event for the audience. Netflix has illustrated that they are the perfect partners to accomplish this goal.
“I admire the ambition of Netflix to become one of the biggest movie studios in the world,” Johnson said. “Their original content generates critical acclaim and invites full collaboration on every level of production. Their unbridled enthusiasm for Red Notice is equally matched by their commitment to entertaining audiences on an international scale.
“As the landscape of movies, distribution, and audience consumption continues to evolve, our Seven Bucks focus is to continue to find the best platform and partners to thrive in this ever changing environment. Director/writer Rawson Thurber has delivered a dynamic script that me and my co-stars and partners-in-heist, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds, can’t wait to shoot.
“The fun we’re gonna have making Red Notice, but more importantly — the fun the worldwide audience will have watching it in 190+ countries — all at the same moment.”
Netflix said, “Rawson wrote a spectacular globetrotting action-adventure film. We can’t wait to bring this story and this Dream Team of movie stars, Dwayne, Ryan, and Gal, to audiences around the world.”
You usually do not see this many A-list actors in one big-budget movie. It goes against the report that suggested Netflix had internal discussions about cutting back on expensive movie projects following ‘Triple Frontier.’ Netflix is focusing on landing A-list stars for movies. For example, Ryan Murphy’s upcoming film ‘The Prom’ stars Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, James Corden, and Ariana Grande, leading up a strong cast.
Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement: “We’re incredibly proud of Triple Frontier, one of our most popular original films. Sixty-three million member households have now watched the movie since it launched in March, and we look forward to working on more projects with this talented cast, producers, and writer/director J.C. Chandor.”
Tammy Smith Casting, the extras casting director behind several major motion pictures, including ‘Jungle Cruise’ and ’The Suicide Squad,’ will be the casting director of this project. Stay tuned for casting calls, auditions, and news.
