Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Red Notice’ Pauses Production Due To Coronavirus

Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming Red Notice film from Netflix is the latest production to fall victim to the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Many film productions have been facing delays due to the growing threat of the coronavirus. The latest is Netflix’s upcoming Red Notice film starting Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds. Red Notice production started in January and has been filming around-the-world, but it will now shut down for two weeks due to coronavirus concerns.

The delay announcement was made by Dwayne Johnson and he shared a video on Instagram. You can see what Dwayne Jonson had to say to the cast and crew below.

“We are pressing pause on our @netflix production of RED NOTICE effective this Monday for the next two weeks.
It’s my privilege to speak eye to eye with our entire crew to help give a little clarity and guidance, as the most important thing right now is for us to get everyone home to their concerned families. Gotta protect our babies, spouses, loved ones and elderly. We’ll continue to monitor and assess this situation closely to make the best decisions for our families first and then our businesses. We’re a resilient nation who ultimately, will always rise to the occasion to be accountable and work together to overcome whatever hardship lies in front of us. Our country will do its job, as the rest of the world will do theirs. Everyone please stay healthy, vigilant, safe and let’s protect one another. We’re all in this – together.
