Chris Evans and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are ready to spice up the holiday season in their upcoming action film for Amazon Studios, Red One.
Production will start this year, with a holiday 2023 release scheduled. Jake Kasdan (Jumanji) will direct the screenplay from Chris Morgan of the Fast & Furious franchise.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but Red One will aim to reimagine the holiday genre with an action-adventure comedy. Johnson had announced his involvement with the project in June of last year, with his production company Seven Bucks Production joining The Detective Agency, Chris Morgan Productions, and Melvin Mar and Sky Salem Robinson.
Evans has a busy few years coming up after his time off post-Avengers: Endgame. This year, his blockbuster action film for Netflix The Gray Man from AGBO films will premiere, along with Lightyear, an origin story of the beloved Toy Story character. Ghosted, an action-romance for Apple TV+ will begin filming in February and will likely arrive in 2023, with the recently announced untitled Gene Kelly project waiting in the wings.
