Ryan Reynolds Wasted 'Millions' Of Netflix's Money Making Red Notice
| Last updated
Ryan Reynolds says he wasted 'millions' of dollars of Netflix's money during the filming of his latest film Red Notice, simply because he kept making his co-stars laugh. Check out the trailer for the film below:
Reynolds stars in the film alongside fellow Hollywood A-listers Gal Gadot and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, and apparently he kept the cast laughing the whole time, sometimes at the expense of takes.
Now, anyone who knows anything about how films get made knows that it's an expensive business, which means that the more quickly you can get scenes into the can, the less expensive the overall production will be.
However, as Gadot explained, Reynolds had little time for that, and preferred to spend his time making his fellow actors laugh, thus ruining a number of takes.
Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show which aired this evening (6 November), Gadot said: "We broke so many takes.
"[Ryan] waits around the corner waiting to break us."
Reynolds himself joked: "We wasted millions of Netflix's dollars on laughing and just goofing around on set."
The film itself has been directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber and tells the tale of an Interpol officer who attempts to track down and capture a world-renowned art thief.
Sounds fun, right?
Well, if you want to catch it, you have a couple of options.
The film has been given a limited theatrical release - much like many of Netflix's big budget offerings - so you can catch it there as of yesterday (5 November).
Alternatively, you can choose to wait for a few more days - until 12 November - and catch the film on the streaming platform itself.
It might be one of the last few times you can catch Reynolds on screen for a while, as he's recently announced he'll be taking a bit of time off following completion of his Christmas musical, which also stars Will Ferrell, called Spirited.
On his Instagram, he wrote: "That's a wrap for me on Spirited. Not sure I'd have been ready to say yes to a film this challenging even three years ago.
"Singing, dancing and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made a whole lotta dreams come true. And this is my second film with the great @octaviaspencer...
"Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making. I'm gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists.
"These days, kindness matters as much as talent. I've been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both."
As is pretty much par for the course, Reynolds' wife Blake Lively chipped in with a little jibe, responding: "Michael Caine did it first."
