Netflix’s biggest budget movie to date will head to the capital later this year…

Six Underground, Netflix’s biggest budget movie to date, will begin shooting in the UAE this November.

The film, directed by Michael Bay and starring Ryan Reynolds, will be partially shot in Abu Dhabi. Although few more details have been released, the plot promises a collision of Deadpool and Mission Impossible (the latter has shot both in Dubai and Abu Dhabi before).

Coupled with the fact that it’s got a budget of a staggering $125 million (Dh460 million), we’re expecting some pretty jaw-dropping scenes.

This isn’t the first time Reynolds has been connected to the UAE. Earlier this year alongside the release of Deadpool 2, one of the pearl divers at The Dubai Mall waterfall was decked out in the red and black costume of none other than Marvel superhero Deadpool.

This is incredible. #deadpool2 @thedubaimall ??

At the time, the award-winning actor shared a snap of the stunt to his Instagram, describing it as ‘incredible’.

According to The National, the big-budget film could shoot in Abu Dhabi for as long as six months. That sounds like plenty of opportunity to bump into Ryan Reynolds at The Louvre to us…
