New holiday action film with two famous actors – what could be better! The Rock’s Christmas movie is to be titled ‘Red One’ and will be coming out for Christmas of 2023! Starring Chris Evans, Bonnie Hunt, Lucy Liu, Nick Kroll, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Wesley Kimmel, and of course Dwayne Johnson himself. In terms of plot, the film will show Rock and Evans working together rather than a simple rivalry.
According to Collider, “The cast of Red One is stacked with amazing talent. Of course, headlining the film is Dwayne Johnson as Callum Drift and Chris Evans as Jack O’Malley. While on the surface, it feels like these two unstoppable forces would-be rivals, the film actually sees Drift and O’Malley working together. Johnson is reuniting with his Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungle director Jake Kasdan and Hobbs & Shaw writer Chris Morgan for the Christmas film.
“The film is said to be “…a globe-trotting, four-quadrant action-adventure comedy imagining a whole new universe to explore within the holiday genre.” We can’t make out much from The Rock’s post, but it sounds like the film will skew towards the fantasy world, with Jumanji and Harry Potter as inspiration. Miracle on 34th Street and It’s A Wonderful Life are both holiday classics and focus on the Christmas spirit, while Hobbs & Shaw will probably give us an idea of the type of action we can expect,” Collider reports.
