Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot could return for Red Notice 2, and here’s everything we know about it.
Fans are absolutely loving Netflix’s latest action-comedy movie Red Notice. Premiered on Nov 12, 2021, the big-budget spectacle records the biggest opening in Netflix history. It garnered more than 4 million views in the first weekend in the United States. This feat becomes even more impressive as critics have penned down the movie and it has premiered on Netflix post a limited release in theatres on Nov 5, 2021. Since the movie is reaping great response from the audience, fans are asking about its sequel. Will there be Red Notice 2? Will Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot return for a sequel?
Before we discuss the sequel, let’s have a detailed read at the original. Red Notice stars Dwayne Johnson as FBI Agent John Hartley who later accompanies Nolan Booth an art thief played by Ryan Reynolds. To add spice, there’s Gal Gadot as the criminal The Bishop aka Sarah Black.
The plot of the movie is more dramatic than you would think, especially, the plot twist that will blow your mind. The story follows the hunt for the third of Cleopatra’s famous eggs that is worth billions. How the three leads come together for a mission is what forms the crux of the story. Red Notice is one hell of an adventurous ride featuring a cat-mouse race between the thieves and police. The production values are high as it is Netflix’s most-expensive movie of all time.
Red Notice did end on something that could turn into a new story for the film, but nothing can be said for sure. It’s too early for any kind of expectation. To get it straight, no official announcement has been made by Netflix regarding the sequel. Since Red Notice is Netflix’s most expensive movie ever made, the streaming giant would hope to launch a new franchise provided it gets a massive viewership.
Will there be Red Notice 2 on Netflix?
As we just mentioned, there’s no official statement by Netflix on the happening of Red Notice 2. Still, there are several reasons for it to happen. Red Notice has recorded the biggest opening in Netflix’s history, which adds a great reason for the creators to go for a sequel.
Red Notice received mostly negative reviews from critics, but the audience response has been more terrific with a 92% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Netflix has always worked on audience response. As mentioned above, if the movie gets the massive viewership that it is expected then Netflix would renew it sooner or later.
What story will Red Notice 2 follow?
Beware the Spoilers!
The ending of Red Notice is more than enough to set up its sequel. It takes us six months ahead of the hunt for Cleopatra’s precious eggs where John and Sarah are relishing their couple life after they stunningly double-crossed Nolan. Well, Nolan took his chance, overturns the situation, and make a return. He tells them that he exposed them to Interpol, resulting in their bank accounts being frozen.
He proposes the three of them need to work together on an even bigger job. Although John Hartley doesn’t want to team up with Booth again, Black convinces him to take the job. The trio comes back on the street to roll out an even greater heist and this together this time.
Red Notice 2 can commence from that moment on or they can develop a new plot, that’s very unlikely. It’s obvious that we’ll see the World’s greatest art thieves carry on with way bigger adventures.
Will the lead trio return for Red Notice 2? What will be the star cast?
If Netflix plans a sequel to Red Notice then Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds will definitely come together. The sequel would be incomplete without any one of them. The ending sets up an unlikely partnership. These three stars are the heart and soul of the movie and in the absence of any one of them, the franchise may lose its charm.
The Umbrella Academy‘s Ritu Arya could also return as Inspector Urvashi Das as she is on a hunt for the trio. As the franchise grows big, we will definitely see new faces and characters.
When will Red Notice 2 come on Netflix?
Well, it’s difficult to predict the release date as Netflix hasn’t announced the sequel yet. Whenever Red Notice 2 is announced, it likely won’t come to Netflix for at least a few years. There are several reasons behind it.
Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds are big superstars. All of them have several projects lined up. So, adjusting their schedules again won’t be an easy task. The scripting, production and post-production would take around two years.
Red Notice took around three years to be on Netflix. So, the fans shouldn’t expect to see Red Notice 2 before 2024.
Red Notice is streaming on Netflix from Nov 12, 2021. Stream it now.
