Netflix's upcoming movie, Red Notice, is one of the many films that’s currently at a stand still in regard to its production cycle. The film began shooting in Atlanta back in January but was forced to stop filming in March. While the current state of the world is the main reason the project has been delayed, there may be another reason as well. And Ryan Reynolds has humorously pointed out that it may have something to do with him and co-star Dwayne Johnson.
Ryan Reynolds recently joked that he and Dwayne Johnson are responsible for delaying Red Notice and cites their close relationship as the cause. Specifically, it’s their desire to make each other crack up that Reynolds claims holds the schedule up:
Still, Ryan Reynolds explained, during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, that it’s Dwayne Johnson’s sense of humor that endears them to each other. Reynolds especially loves the fact that the former wrestler knows how to laugh at himself:
And it sounds like it can literally be painful for the two to keep their composure while shooting. Reynolds even described holding back laughter to the point that he feels actual discomfort:
Even though he’s only kidding about the delay, you likely know exactly how Ryan Reynolds feels, especially if you’re someone who has a close friend (or several). Almost all of us have pals that we constantly joke with whenever we’re around them.
With two comedic actors like Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne Johnson on set, it’s almost a given that you’re going to burst into a fit of laughter at some point. Because they're so close (and so funny), one can definitely see them trying to make each other break character. If their track records are any indication, this chemistry should definitely be present in their performances when Red Notice finally hits our screens.
