Actor and filmmaker Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson kept busy over the past weekend, not only heading an investor group buying the XFL football league from his former boss, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, but also making an announcement on Instagram that his upcoming Netflix film, Red Notice, would be returning to production in mid-September.
Red Notice will resume filming in Atlanta at Tyler Perry Studios with writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber as prep and construction gets underway beginning this week, according to IATSE Local 479. It will be one of a number of productions beginning over the next two months with some films and TV series already starting production overseas due to waivers allowing for international travel.
Johnson’s latest collaboration with Thurber and his first movie for Netflix will resume using the same “Camp Quarantine” protocols that Perry has put in place for his own productions. Red Notice co-stars Ryan Reynolds, whose Michael Bay-directed film, 6 Underground, premiered on Netflix earlier this year, as well as Wonder Woman‘s Gal Gadot. Red Notice will be her third film with Johnson.
You can watch Johnson’s announcement about Red Notice below, and learn more about the XFL deal on ESPN.com.

Like so many of us here in the US and around the world – getting back can be a tough decision that work requires real consideration and strategic planning around best health practices and safety measures. I’m happy to announce our RED NOTICE production will resume shooting next month in mid September. Thank you to our tremendous partners at NETFLIX who’ve joined us shoulder to shoulder to provide the safest and most aggressive “quarantined bubble” for our production crew as possible. I’m confident in our safety strategy and execution, but we’ll also be fluid and amenable to best practice changes on the fly. Stay healthy and stay disciplined, my friends as you all get back to work. Good luck! And to my RED NOTICE crew – the hardest workers in the room, mount up – because we’re going back to work. See you on set. DJ @sevenbucksprod @flynnpictureco @netflix
