Shooting On Red Notice Thwarted 'Cause The Rock Couldn't Fit In Porsche

Don't ya just hate it when you're trying to shoot a bad**s chase scene but you're too bloody massive to fit in the bleedin' sports car?

If that's never happened to you before, it's an absolute nuisance - just ask Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

The big LAD was shooting an 'INSANE' chase scene for Netflix action comedy Red Notice when filming was brought to a standstill because he couldn't fit in the damn Porsche.

As a bloke who is almost two metres tall and equally broad (not literally), sports cars can be challenging. Indeed, if he had actually been in hot pursuit of someone, they almost definitely would have gotten away while he desperately tried to fold himself into the streamlined vehicle.

In a post on Instagram, he explained: "Aaaaand guess who's too big to fit in yet another sports car and now we have to change the entire shot sequence around.

"For our @netflix globe trotting heist movie, RED NOTICE, my writer/director @rawsonthurber (pictured here on the ground setting up the new camera angle) wrote this INSANE chase sequence where I hop in this iconic Porsche and be the bad ass behind the wheel that I am.

"Well, after months of prep and costs buying and shipping this car over to the states - it's time to rehearse the big chase sequence."

Providing a blow-by-blow account of what happened next, the 48-year-old continued: "It goes as follows/

"Rawson: Hey D, let's get you in the Porsche and I'll line up the shot.

"DJ: Let's do it.

"* DJ attempts to get into the car only to get stuck because his back is a bit too wide.

"Rawson: * laughs.

"* DJ continues to struggle trying to shimmy into this Porsche like a big ass brown marshmallow getting shoved into a coin slot.

"Rawson: Wait can you fit?

"DJ: No.

"*Rawson now nervously laughs.

"Rawson: Are you f*cking with me?

"DJ: No.

"Rawson: Oh my God.

"After about 15 seconds of uncomfortable silence... Rawson, myself and the entire crew just started laughing our asses off!!

"F*ck it. Welcome to 2020.

"In the end we showed our agility to think quick on our feet and found 'creative' ways to still get the shot."


The film was originally due to be released three days ago, before you know what pushed everything back.

Now shooting has wrapped ahead of release next year, with the exact date yet to be confirmed.
