Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson needs no introduction when it comes to the pro wrestling world as he is still regarded as one of the all-time greats. He is also a dominant force in Hollywood and brings huge star power to any film he acts in. The Rock is also a businessman and a very smart one at that. He also loves keeping himself in the best physical shape possible.
The Rock also starred in yet another blockbuster movie as he acted alongside Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot in the action-comedy film Red Notice. It was said that the film is the most expensive ever produced by Netflix as well.
The film saw The Rock portraying the role of ‘the FBI’s top profiler’ while Gal Gadot portrayed the world’s greatest art thief. Ryan Reynolds played the world’s greatest con artist.
As reported earlier, the film ended up smashing opening day records at Netflix. In fact, it was even on pace to becoming the most-watched Netflix movie of all time. The film ended up becoming the most-watched film as well soon after and even broke a viewership record on Netflix.
President of The Rock’s Seven Buck Productions, Garcia, recently spoke to Collider, where he talked about a possible sequel to the film. He said that if given enough fan support, a sequel will definitely be in the works.
“We do have a really fun blooper reel, but we did like where we ended. In regards to the end credits, with something like this that, in essence, you could view as a franchise starter, we never really like to get ahead of ourselves too much. I think ultimately it’s the fans that dictate if they want a sequel, we’ll be ready to deliver them one. But there was never really a talk about doing some kind of post-credits scene because we always knew how we wanted the movie to end. We knew we wanted to tee up something big, but we didn’t feel that there was really any need for any kind of a post-credits scene. I think we have ideas in our head in terms of where we’d like the story to go, and if the fans respond to the movie the way we’re hoping they will, then it’s on us to be ready to deliver that, and we do have some really good ideas on deck.”
While the film has broken records, it didn’t fare as well when it came to its critical reception. Many critics panned it for being a generic action flick. It could be argued that most of the Rock’s most successful films fall into that category. It comes down to the simple process of don’t fix what isn’t broken, and it has served The Rock well so far. It remains to be seen whether a sequel will be made or not in the future.
