Ryan Reynolds has explained how he “wasted millions of Netflix’s dollars” on new film Red Notice.

The streaming service’s new release, which has a limited run in cinemas from today (5 November), stars Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot. It is reportedly its most expensive film to date, with a budget of $200m (£144.6m).

Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, Red Notice follows an Interpol agent who attempts to hunt down and capture the world’s most wanted art thief.

According to Gadot, Reynolds would often make his co-stars laugh so much that they ended up ruining loads of takes.

“We broke so many takes,” the Wonder Woman star said on Saturday’s episode of The Jonathan Ross Show (6 November). “[Ryan] waits around the corner waiting to break us.”

Reynolds joked: “We wasted millions of Netflix’s dollars on laughing and just goofing around on set.”

The film will arrive on the streaming service on 12 November.
