At the premiere of his action thriller "Red Notice" on Wednesday, the actor told Variety his company Seven Buck Productions will follow the protocol moving forward on "any movie, any television show, or anything produced."
"We won't use real guns at all," Johnson explained. "We're going to switch over to rubber guns, and we're going to take care of it in post. We're not going to worry about the dollars, we won't worry about what it costs."
"Accidents do happen. And when something like this happens of this magnitude, [that is] this heartbreaking, I think the most prudent thing and the smartest thing to do is just pause for a second and really re-examine how you're going to move forward and how we're going to work together."
Johnson's decision follows other Hollywood productions pledging to stop using real guns, as ABC's "The Rookie" banned live guns, along with "The Boys" creator, Eric Kripke, saying "guns with blanks" will no longer be allowed on set.
Meanwhile, an open letter signed by 200 members of the American Society of Cinematographers on Tuesday called for a ban of functional firearms on set.
"We vow to no longer put ourselves and our crew in these unnecessarily lethal situations," the letter read. "We have safe alternatives in VFX and non-functional firearms. We won't sit back and wait for the industry to change. We have a duty to effect change within the industry ourselves."
