Ryan Reynolds has joined the cast of the upcoming action-adventure film Red Notice.
Reynold will star opposite lead Dwayne Johnson and previously cast Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot. The movie follows Interpol agent (Johnson) tasked with capturing the most-wanted art thief in the world.
Also on board is writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber who directed Johnson in Central Intelligence and Skyscraper. “I’m beyond thrilled to be making Red Notice with Scott Stuber and Netflix — a company that believes in filmmakers and big ideas for a global audience,” he said in a statement.
“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,” Johnson added.
The film moved from Universal Pictures to Netflix, following the studio’s announcement that it’s vacating the previously announced Nov. 13, 2020, release date in favor of an untitled event film.
Red Notice is set to begin principal photography in 2020.
