Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans have formed an impossible duo and are working on a new Christmas movie to be released next yearcalled ‘Red One’, and judging by the first images it seems that they are having a lot of fun, although there is still a long way to go before its premiere.
Fantastic bromance between two box office heavyweights
In a post on Evans’ Instagram, we are introduced to the two main characters from ‘Red One’, who are apparently named Callum Drift and Jack O’Malley. Evans is clearly excited to make a Christmas movie and the images have that Christmas theme, inside a toy store, with Dwayne Johnson dressed from head to toe in red and green, looking like a bouncy Christmas elf.
The film will debut on Amazon Prime Video next year yeProducer Hiram García said that the film is similar to ‘Hobbs and Shaw’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘You can also live by illusion’:
“It’s an action comedy. There will also be ‘mythology’ elements and it will take elements that we are used to seeing in Christmas movies and put an action-adventure spin on them. Really, it’s hard to find another Christmas movie to compare it to. I don’t think anything like this has ever been done in that space, which is always very attractive to us. We’re very excited about it, Amazon has been great with it and we hope to have it ready by December 2023.”
‘Red One’ could be the start of a Christmas action movie franchise. If that’s the case, the movie has found two perfect stars with a lot of franchise credibility, but the movie will also co-star, for JK Simmons and Bonnie Hunt as Santa and Mrs. Claus, plus Lucy Liu, Kiernan Shipka, Kristofer Hivju, Nick Kroll, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, and Wesley Kimmel. The director will be Jake Kasdan and Chris Morgan wrote the script.
