ATLANTA — The film industry in Georgia is picking up again since shutting down amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Twenty nine films and TV shows are in production in Georgia, including the upcoming Netflix drama "Red Notice".
Stars Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot posted on social media as they were getting a COVID-19 test on set in Atlanta.
Reynolds’ wife actress Blake Lively took a photo of the star on set.
“Back to work on #RedNotice. The Covid Test is quick and easy. The doctor places the swab up your nose, just deep enough to tickle your childhood memories and then it’s over. No matter what you say to him, he won’t buy you dinner first,” Reynolds wrote in an Instagram post.
Gadot, also shared snaps on set, and wrote, “Getting ready to head back to the Red Notice set💃🏻but prep looks a little different now..😳#staysafe”.
“Red Notice” also stars and is being produced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. It's unclear if Johnson is on set yet after recently battling the virus.
“I'm confident in our safety strategy and execution, but we’ll also be fluid and amenable to best practice changes on the fly. Stay healthy and stay disciplined, my friends as you all get back to work,” Johnson said.
A month before, Johnson shared his excited to return to set late last month on his Instagram.
“Like so many of us here in the US and around the world - getting back can be a tough decision that work requires real consideration and strategic planning around best health practices and safety measures. I’m happy to announce our RED NOTICE production will resume shooting next month in mid-September. Thank you to our tremendous partners at NETFLIX who’ve joined us shoulder to shoulder to provide the safest and most aggressive “quarantined bubble” for our production crew as possible, Johnson wrote.
