Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s new Netflix action thriller Red Notice is taking a break due to the novel coronavirus, shutting down production for a couple of weeks. Johnson posted to Instagram on Saturday with a video of him addressing the crew, noting that the film will shot down starting Monday.

You can see the post below, in which he tells the crew, “I really appreciate all your hard work and your patience during this time, but my number one goal for your guys, and its our number one goal too, is that we’re going to get everyone home to their families. This is the kind of stuff that can wait, the most important thing is to take care of our families.” In the caption, he notes that the film, which he is co-producing through his Seven Bucks production banner, will shut down for the next two weeks starting Monday.

The film stars Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds and is described as a “globetrotting heist thriller.” Johnson previously described the film as follows:

“In the world of international crime, an Interpol issued RED NOTICE is a global alert to hunt down and capture the world’s most wanted. The world’s greatest art thief. The world’s greatest tracker. The worlds greatest conman.”

Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence, Skyscraper is directing the film.

We are pressing pause on our @netflix production of RED NOTICE effective this Monday for the next two weeks. It’s my privilege to speak eye to eye with our entire crew to help give a little clarity and guidance, as the most important thing right now is for us to get everyone home to their concerned families. Gotta protect our babies, spouses, loved ones and elderly. We’ll continue to monitor and assess this situation closely to make the best decisions for our families first and then our businesses. We’re a resilient nation who ultimately, will always rise to the occasion to be accountable and work together to overcome whatever hardship lies in front of us. Our country will do its job, as the rest of the world will do theirs. Everyone please stay healthy, vigilant, safe and let’s protect one another. We’re all in this – together.
