When is Red Notice 2 release date? Well, you’re in the right place to find out. The Netflix exclusive premiered to resounding success in November 2021, with record-breaking figures marking it the most-watched movie Netflix has ever made.
Unsurprisingly, with almost 329 million viewing hours by users around the world in the first 28 days, yes, there will indeed be a Red Notice 2. Thank goodness, really, since the action movie was also reportedly one of the most expensive Netflix movies to date, costing more than $200 million.
Armed with such a big budget meant that Red Notice could and continues to be fronted by a superstar triad of Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson, and Gal Gadot. Or, also sometimes known as Deadpool, Luke Hobbs, and Wonder Woman. This global heist flick will be returning to Netflix with a brand new instalment, and we’ve got everything you need to know about the Red Notice 2 release date, including information on the cast, plot, and more. Man, oh man, are we in for an all-action treat.
Red Notice 2 release date speculation
Red Notice 2 was officially announced in January 2022, but Netflix hasn’t announced any more details since then, but realistically, we think it will be available to stream in 2024.
Because of the success of the first comedy thriller movie, we expected the streaming service Netflix would be keen to get Red Notice 2 up and running as soon as possible. We know that writer and director Rawson Marshall Thurber has finished the Red Notice 2 script and that he’s working on the third film now so he can shoot both movies back to back.
There were reports that the shooting would begin in 2023, but that hasn’t materialized. At this point, with the 2023 Writers Strike in full swing, it’s unlikely that production will begin until the winter of this year (schedules allowing), which means there’s no chance of a 2023 release.
Who will be in the Red Notice 2 cast?
It wouldn’t be Red Notice without the leading stars Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson, and Gal Gadot. So, we’d fully expect the trio to return for another big heist as the Red Notice 2 cast.
As mentioned, the stars will quite literally have to align for the sequel to take place. We’re also left wondering if we could see the supporting cast members of Red Notice, Ritu Arya, and Chris Diamantopoulos, returning for the second movie.
The full expected Red Notice cast list:
- Dwayne Johnson as John Hartley/The Bishop
- Ryan Reynolds as Nolan Booth
- Gal Gadot as Sarah Black/The Bishop
No one met their maker in Red Notice, so there’s no reason to rule out any of the names we’ve mentioned. But, as with any sequel, we’re sure there’ll be some big names joining the ranks for Red Notice 2, especially given the success it stirred up the first time around.
Red Notice 2 plot speculation
Red Notice ended with a glorious plot twist revealing that Hartley (Johnson) had, in fact, been working alongside The Bishop the whole time in order to acquire the three eggs. The Red Notice 2 plot will more than likely pick up on this storyline.
Viewers and Booth (Reynolds) were led to believe up to this point that The Bishop was Gal Gadot. When, in fact, it was a dual role, and they’re actually a couple(!).
With this revelation, the pair set Booth up for arrest by Interpol, who has been hot on their tails the entire time. Cut to months later, and Hartley and The Bishop are luxuriating on a yacht in the middle of the ocean when Booth turns up.
Planning the heist: Best thriller movies
To secure his release from Interpol, he revealed the details of the pair’s secret off-shore bank account and had all their money seized. Leaving them… open for a new “three-thief job”. Hooray! We’re given a glimpse into the potential plot of Red Notice 2 as the scene cuts to Paris as the trio is seen outside the Louvre Museum, plotting their next move.
So, we’re officially teed up for a sequel with the forecast of another bigger and better heist for the trio promising big, splashy headlines, just how Booth likes it.
Now, we know there’s a bit of a wait for more news on Red Notice 2, so if you’re looking for something to enjoy in the meantime, we’ve put together a list of the best comedy movies of all time as well as a guide to all the new movies coming in 2023.
