Dwayne Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions has set up the Christmas-themed feature film “Red One” at Amazon Studios.
The project is dubbed a “globe-trotting, four-quadrant action-adventure comedy, imagining a whole new universe to explore within the holiday genre.”
Specifics are under wraps but the project is said to be Santa-centric, and the concept is said to be strong enough to offer branding and business opportunities far beyond the streamer and e-tailer and into other sectors of industry (eg. gift-giving).
The film is being penned by “Fast and Furious” series and “Hobbs & Shaw” scribe Chris Morgan, based on an original story by Johnson’s producing partner Hiram Garcia.
Johnson will star in and produce the feature with Morgan, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia. No director is attached at present but filming aims to begin sometime next year for a Holiday 2023 release.
