It continued to set other records, eventually becoming the most-watched movie on Netflix within 28 days of its release. Before Red notification even premiered, there were already talks about possible sequels. Next Red notificationDue to the high viewership, two sequels were officially green-lighted and will be filmed consecutively. Now the Red notification producers provide an update on these sequels.
In an interview with Collider, Red notification Producers Flynn and Garcia give a positive update on the film’s sequels. While it doesn’t seem like production is about to kick off, there’s still plenty going on behind the scenes. Check out their statements below:
Flynn: Well, we have a ‘Red Notice 2’ script and almost… [Red Notice] 3. The plan is hopefully if Hiram and I are happy we would make those movies back to back. But it’s all about the scripts and how we feel and how Dwayne, Gal and Ryan feel about it. But that franchise is great and obviously Netflix really wants it, and Rawson [Marshall Thurber, director, and screenwriter] is committed.
Garcia: Yes, Rawson (Marshall Thurber) is at work and we were talking to him about it recently. He’s deep in it and that’s his baby. So he was cut away. We are excited to step in and see a new concept that he will bring to us soon.”
What to expect from Red Notice 2 & 3
Red notificationThe producers seem very optimistic about the sequels, confirming that development is in full swing. With the scripts nearing completion, more details about the content of the sequel could also be released soon. What is known so far is that the main trio – Reynolds, Johnson and Gadot – are expected to return for both sequels. The trio will team up to pull off even more heists, which can be made more difficult by the fact that they’re all fugitives with red notices over their heads. Red notification 2 will likely start where the first film ended, when the trio were eyeing the Louvre in Paris. What they’re looking for — and whether they can trust each other or not — remains to be seen. While Red notification 3 will probably also follow the lead trio through further adventures, the plot will probably not be known until Red notification 2 determines its direction.
Next for Red notification seems to be a production timeline. Of course, Flynn and Garcia warned that the timeline will depend on how the entire cast and crew feel about the script. The scripts may require additional workshop, and the back-to-back filming may or may not be done. However, with confirmation that everyone involved is on board and committed to making the sequels a reality, development could move quickly once the scripts are ready. If progress is on Red notificationthe sequels continue to run smoothly, viewers may even expect Red notification 2 already in the holiday period of 2023.
