Is The Russian Prison In Red Notice Real?

While the Russian prison scenes in Red Notice appeared quite convincing, the general public began to believe that it was an actual prison. They were, however, shot at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, not in a real prison.

According to the Tyler Perry Studios webpage, the lot is over 300 acres and includes several pre-existing sets, such as the oval office and an iconic dinner and coffee house.

However, it is unknown which set the prison scenes were shot on, though the studios do have a prison yard set. 

The prison was constructed on set, with the backdrop based on an actual location in Svalbard, Norway.


Even if this is the location of the scenes, it has most likely undergone extensive renovations before filming, making it realistic.

While a significant proportion of the movie was shot in Atlanta, Georgia, some scenes were shot in renowned European capitals.

Including the Russian prison scenes shot at Tyler Perry Studios, located at 315 Deshler Street SW in Atlanta. 

According to the film's IMDb page, the movie was also shot in the famous capital cities of Rome and Paris.

Sardinia, an Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea, was also used to shoot scenes from 'Red Notice,' including those in which Hartley and the Bishop commemorate their achievements together.

One might identify Paris' art gallery The Louvre (The Louvre Pyramid) as the character walks towards the legendary Pyramide du Louvre in the movie's final scene. It was most likely shot in the City of Light.
