We can count on Netflix to start plotting a sequel as soon as one of their movies becomes a huge hit, and they’re doing the same with Red Notice. The star-studded action flick will be coming back for not one but two sequels, set to be shot back-to-back.

According to Deadline, Netflix is in the early stages of putting together a back-to-back shoot for two Red Notice follow-ups. They’re eyeing early 2023 for the beginning of the shoot, but it all comes down to the schedule of its stars Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds, all expected to come back.

Deadline also reports they’re planning to add new characters to the mix and create a heist-film ensemble in the vein of the start-studded Ocean’s Eleven franchise. Rawson Marshall Thurber, who directed and wrote the first film, is also set to come back.

Red Notice followed the adventures of an FBI profiler (Johnson) who joins forces with the world’s most-wanted art thief (Reynolds) in an attempt to stop an elaborate heist by his main rival (Gadot). It was the most costly film in Netflix’s history, with an estimated budget of $200 million. It accumulated a viewership of 364.02 million hours in its first 28 days of release, making it Netflix’s most-watched original movie so far.
