From Netflix to Amazon Prime, from “Red Notice” to “Red One” and from Ryan Reynolds (45) to Chris Evans (40): The latest film project by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (49) is strikingly reminiscent at first glance the action comedy that was released in November of last year. And “Red One”, as “Deadline” reports exclusively, is also a fast-paced mixture of action, adventure and humor. However, it is said to be a film with a Christmas theme.
There is talk of a “completely new universe within the Christmas genre”. Filming for the film is scheduled to start later this year with Johnson and Evans as an unlikely duo, so the story was penned by Hiram Garcia – and lo and behold, he also worked on “Red Notice”. Meanwhile, Jake Kasdan, who in turn already worked on the two “Jumanji” remakes from 2017 and 2019 with “The Rock”, will take over the direction.
Even more familiar faces
According to the report, Chris Morgan, who has already had a hand in some “Fast & Furious” parts, is responsible for the script. The film will probably not be released until 2023 at the earliest – just in time for Christmas?
