Netflix is already producing ‘Red Alert 2 and 3’, with Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds
‘Red alert’ arrived in the catalog of Netflix at the end of last year and despite mixed reviews, it was a massive hit and became not only the biggest opening for any movie on the streaming platform, but also the most watched of all time.
Now, according to Deadline, the action film will not only have one sequel, but two – which will be shot simultaneously.
Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds are expected to reprise their roles in the sequels.
The information indicates that the director Rawson Marshall Thurber will return to the sequels. The first of these is set to begin shooting in early 2023. Thurber is believed to have already started writing the script, but he revealed in November 2021 that he hasn’t started the process yet.
“I’m not working on the sequel script… I’ve certainly been thinking about what I would do for a sequel and, not wanting to tell the old story, but Netflix… We’ve been having these conversations,” he commented.

The film is written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (‘Skyscraper’).
In the plot, when Interpol issues the red alert – a global search and seizure order for the world’s most wanted criminals – it’s time for the FBI’s top investigator, John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) to step in. The hunt will put him in the middle of a daring heist plan, forcing him to team up with con man Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) to capture the world’s most wanted art thief, ‘The Bishop’ (Gal Gadot) . This grand adventure will take the trio around the globe, past dance floors, an isolated prison, through the jungle and, worst of all, constantly in each other’s company. The stellar cast also includes Ritu Arya and Chris Diamantopoulos. Directed and written by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence, Skyscraper: Unlimited Courage) and produced by Hiram Garcia, Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions, Beau Flynn of Flynn Picture Co., and Thurber’s Bad Version, Inc., Red Alert is an elegant game of cat and mouse around the globe.
