Dwayne Johnson And Chris Evans Kick Off New Christmas Movie ‘Red One’ Production

Red One, starring Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans in pivotal roles, is set to premiere in 2023 on Amazon Prime Video.

Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans are ready to go on a Christmas ride. The actors recently took to their social media and revealed that they’d officially kicked off production of their upcoming Christmas film from Amazon Studios titled Red One.

Dwayne shared a series of photos with Evans goofing off in front of a festive, toy-laden backdrop and penned, “It’s beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAAAS.” While revealing the title, the actor added, “Officially kicking off production for our CHRISTMAS franchise film titled, ‘RED ONE’ with my guy @chrisevans.” The Rock continues, “Chris and I have been waiting to make a Christmas movie our entire careers and now finally, the trouble begins…”

In his post, Johnson also gave a shout-out to director Jake Kasdan, who previously helmed Johnson’s films Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) and its sequel Jumanji: The Next Level (2019). “Our director, Jake Kasdan has been in inspired form to deliver a very special, one-of-a-kind CHRISTMAS franchise for you and your families around the world to enjoy,” he said.

Johnson concluded, “More to come. Lets get to work. Merry Christmas.” Evans shared a similar photo set to his Instagram feed, revealing what appear to be their characters’ names: Callum Drift and Jack O’Malley. “We’re already having WAY too much fun on this one,” the Avengers: Endgame star said, adding, “(I can’t believe I’m finally doing a Christmas movie!).”

Johnson announced Red One on his Instagram page in October 2021, saying at the time that filming would begin in the summer of 2022. “Amazon is playing to WIN,” he wrote in the caption. “Can’t wait to take you and your families on this very special HOLIDAY ADVENTURE…” Evans’ casting in Red One was announced back in January. The movie is described as an action-adventure comedy that imagines a new universe within the holiday genre.

The film is based on an original story from Hiram Garcia, the president of the production at Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions. Kasdan will be directing and co-producing with his production company alongside Seven Bucks Productions. Chris Morgan (Hobbs and Shaw, The Fate of the Furious) will be writing the script and co-producing, as well. The other plot details of the upcoming film are kept under wraps. Red One is set to premiere in 2023 on Prime Video.
