Dwayne Johnson's 'Red Notice' Sets 2020 Release Date
Dwayne Johnson is carving out more territory.
Universal and Legendary have set a June 12, 2020 release date for Johnson's Red Notice, an action-thriller the two companies picked up after a bidding war last month. So far, it has the date to itself.
The film is from director Rawson Marshall Thurber, the filmmaker behind Johnson’s Central Intelligence and upcoming Skyscraper. The Hollywood Reporter reported last month it has a proposed budget between $125 million and $150 million and sees Johnson's salary cross $20 million for the first time.
Johnson plays an Interpol agent after the most wanted art thief in the world.
Producers include Beau Flynn of Flynn Picture Co.; Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia for their Seven Bucks Productions; and Thurber for his Bad Version, Inc. Wendy Jacobson is executive producer.
Johnson and Thurber's Central Intelligence earned $216.9 million worldwide in 2016 on a $50 million budget. Their Skyscraper opens July 13, just months after the action star's next vehicle, Rampage, which opens April 13.
