Dwayne Johnson, Hollywood’s Best Sandwich Man, collaborates once again with director Jake Kasdan. After Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji: Next Levelthe two accomplices meet for RedOnethe Christmas film commissioned by Amazonwho added Chris Evans to her wishlist.
If sooner we had wind that the big casting RedOne kept getting biggerthe end-of-year holiday feature film has found great gifts under the tree. Deadline shared two new playmates for actors, a first visual and a redefined status for the proposal sinceit has officially gone into production.
This first glimpse shows us a Dwayne Johnson in a Deadpool Christmas outfit, face closed, ready to carry out its mission (as usual). On the right we find a Chris Evans disguised as an ordinary man, where it is difficult to glimpse through his four layers of clothing the man alive voted the sexiest. Both strike a pose in what looks like a toy store. Yes, it’s exciting.
But we also said it, so two names came to be added to the project. The first is none other than the immense and Oscar-winning JK Simmonswho will play Santa Claus. He will be supported by Bonnie Hunt (seen in… the Jumanji from 1995) who will camp on his side the mother Christmas. Both joined a substantial cast since Lucy Liu, Kiernan Shipka, Kristofer Hivju, Nick Kroll, Mary Elizabeth Ellis and Wesley Kimmel are already present. A large cast in the service of Chris Morgan’s screenplay, writing on the majority of films Fast & Furious (including the spin-off Hobbs & Shaw), and soon Shazam! The Rage of the Gods.
If this project and the technical team feel good (or not) the calibrated entertainment made in The Rock, it’s normal. This is his production box seven buckswhich he directs with Hiram Garcia (who incidentally had the idea for the film), who is behind the project. This is why it fits logically into the course of Dwayne Johnson. The good man would even like to do this Red Notice… sorry RedOne a new franchise for Amazon. It must be said that with its name strangely close to the Red Notice from Netflix, it is easy to confuse the two … and it is perhaps even wanted on the part of the two friends.
To know if this major project is worth it, we will have to wait sinceno release date has been announced yet. If on the other hand it is Dwayne Johnson who attracts the curious, they can always find him on the poster of black adam in French theaters since October 19, 2022… even if in real life, we do not recommend it.
