Universal, Legendary Combine Forces to Pay Dwayne Johnson’s Salary for Red Notice

Posted by February 9, 2018 Comment

Superstar actor and presidential hopeful Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson needs to be paid $20 million for his upcoming movie Red Notice, and with the stock market taking such a hit lately (thanks, Trump!), that price is a little bit steep for one movie studio to handle alone. As a result, both Universal and Legendary have teamed up to grab the rights to Red Notice.

According to a report from THR, Red Notice was the subject of an intense bidding war with every studio vying for the rights. Director Rawson Marshall Thurber also needed $10 million, and the budget for the movie is expected to be $125-150 million. Universal and Legendary will collaborate in an unknown way, but the report claims that Universal will have more than just a distributor role.

The Rock will play an Interpol agent in the action comedy film. The movie will supposedly have a co-star who has not been named yet. May we make a suggestion?
