Watch Dwayne Johnson Chase Ryan Reynolds in ‘Red Notice’ - Anatomy of a Scene.

A chase scene through a museum allowed the filmmakers behind “Red Notice” to try out some fun new technology.

This sequence involves the F.B.I. profiler John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) getting into a foot chase with the art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds). The chase involves some creative use of scaffolding and some inventive reuse of locations.

In this video, the writer and director Rawson Marshall Thurber discusses how he and his crew worked through some of the limitations involved in shooting the film during the pandemic. They couldn’t leave Atlanta, their home base for the production, and had to build a museum set on a soundstage there.

“Ryan and Dwayne chase each other through hallways, and oftentimes, what we would do is have them run through one hallway,” Thurber said, “and then overnight we would change it to look like a different hallway and they would run back the other way.”

The filmmakers also employed a small camera called the Komodo, from Red Digital. That camera was attached to a race drone, which could chase the actors through the sets.

“It got us some pretty great shots,” Thurber said.
