More than 300 cast and crew will spend 30 days in the UAE, shooting in Abu Dhabi, Liwa desert, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah.

Reynolds seems to be enjoying his time here already. In a statement provided to The National, he said: “Shooting in Abu Dhabi is going to be one of the highlights of this production, although you’ll have to wait until the movie hits Netflix to find out why.

“We’ve only been here a few days so far, but the welcome from everyone has been amazing and I can’t wait to explore Abu Dhabi more.”

Bay added: “Abu Dhabi is a unique place to make a movie, with a lot of great looks. It’s got the diversity and architecture I need in front of the camera – plus the professional facilities, crew and infrastructure to back it up. I’m very excited to be shooting here over the next few weeks.”

The film, which has a whopping budget of US$125 million, also stars Dave Franco, Melanie Laurent, Corey Hawkins, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Ben Hardy.
