Universal & Legendary team up for “Red Notice” featuring Dwayne Johnson

Legendary and Univeral Pictures have teamed up secure a deal for “Red Notice” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson according to Deadline. The film is being written and directed by Rawson Thurber (Central Intelligence) and is being touted as a “globe-trotting, heist thriller”. 

There is talk around the film potentially being a tentpole to an entire franchise, which lead to a huge bidding war between Warner Bros, Sony, Netflix and Paramount along with the two winning studios. The film is aiming for a 2020 release date due to the pitch coming with a lead, a writer/director and an entire production team, given the project is already so far a log it is being reported they already have a $125 million budget with Thurber taking home an 8 figure paycheque and Dwayne Johnson getting $20 million.
