Dwayne Johnson will resume shooting his Netflix film Red Notice in a “quarantined bubble” next month (September 2020).
The wrestler turned actor’s company Seven Bucks Production, and Netflix chiefs announced the resumption to filming in a video posted on his Instagram account.
Revealing the safety measures, he wrote in the caption: “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.”
Thanking the team going back to work on the movie, which also stars Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds, he added: “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. 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.”
In the video Dwayne also revealed that he had been talking with NBA bosses about how they got the basketball league back up and running in a bubble environment in Orlando, Florida last week (ends August 2, 2020).
“They’ve been great in terms of sharing with us what has been effective with their bubble,” the Skyscraper star said. “And we are able to implement that in our bubble.”
Red Notice still officially has a November 2020 release date – with any delay due to the new production schedule yet to be confirmed.
