Dwayne Johnson is packed when it comes to his future Hollywood projects. One of the upcoming movies starring the WWE legend is Red One. Since Christmas is just around the corner, it is about time we shed some light on this Johnson-starrer set to release this holiday season.
Despite its release date fast approaching, there isn’t much revealed about the movie just yet. However, there are bits that we have recovered from various sources that help us piece together answers to several integral questions about the upcoming film. If you are someone who is a fan of The Rock or a person who enjoys Christmas movies, these bits of information should be enough to get you excited for what’s to come.
Fans don’t have to go to theaters to enjoy the experience
The movie Red One will be the first movie starring DJ to be released after the long WGA strike in Hollywood. It will also be the first from a long list of piled-up projects waiting to be finished up.
We also know that the movie is going to be an Amazon Original. So, fans of the genre and supporters of The Brahma Bull don’t have to leave their homes to entertain themselves with the brand-new Christmas-themed movie. Although the originally decided release date of the film might have to shift a little, it is still expected to be released somewhere around the Christmas holiday; maintaining the theme that the movie carries.
While DJ will be playing ‘Callum Drift’, Chris Evans, known for his heroic roles over at Marvel Studios, has been cast as ‘Jack O’Malley’. According to the cast list, J. K. Simmons will be adorning the role of ‘Santa Claus’ for the movie.
Even though the plot written by Hiram Garcia and directed by Jake Kasdan, is still under wraps, there is a presumption that it will take inspiration from movies like 2022’s Violent Night and the evergreen Die Hard. In fact, this concept had Chris Evans so hooked that he ditched another likable offer to work alongside The Rock.
Chris Evans liked Dwayne Johnson’s idea better
In a recent interview, Evans revealed that he was presented with two difficult choices last year. He could either work on a space-themed movie or work alongside Johnson in his Christmas movie. Since Evans loves space so much, it was a difficult choice for him. However, the scarcity of Christmas-themed movies in recent times made him opt for Red One instead of the other project.
Evans revealed that he has been in the acting business for a long time, and he wanted to grab an opportunity to work on an entertaining Christmas movie. Are you waiting for the movie like any other Dwayne Johnson fan?
