Red Notice, from writer and director Rawson Marshall Thurber who worked with Johnson on Skyscraper and Central Intelligence, will be an international thriller about the pursuit of the world's most wanted art thief.
Johnson is producing the film through his Seven Bucks Productions company with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia. Thurber is also producing alongside Beau Flynn with Scott Sheldon serving as executive producer.
"This is big & exciting," Johnson said on Twitter Monday about Red Notice.
"In our ever changing landscape with how movies are made, distributed and consumed by audiences, the goal was to create a true global event movie watched & enjoyed by the world - at the exact same time," he continued.
