Ryan Reynolds made the announcement along with pictures of him receiving a COVID test.

Production on Netflix's Red Notice, the big-budget international heist adventure starring Gal Gadot, Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne Johnson, has resumed, according to Reynolds.

The star made the announcement on Saturday morning in a tweet, which included pictures of him receiving a COVID test.

"Back to work on #RedNotice. The COVID Test is quick and easy. The doctor places the swab up your nose, just deep enough to tickle your childhood memories and then it’s over. No matter what you say to him, he won’t buy you dinner first," Reynolds wrote on Twitter.

Production on the film shut down in mid-March due to the pandemic. At that time, Johnson told the crew, "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."

Unfortunately, Johnson would announce months later that he and his family had contracted the virus.
