While not much is known about the upcoming comedy holiday film Red One starring Dwayne Johnson, the actor recently took to social media to share a photo of their Santa Claus.
New photos shared by Johnson show his character, who appears to be an elf of some sort, walking behind JK Simmons dressed as a more tactical Santa Claus. In the post, Johnson said it was “an honor to have his six,” before noting that it had been another solid week working on the film. Johnson teased more to come, before signing off as “ELF Commander”
Red One Directed and produced by Jake Kasdan, who reunited with Johnson after working together on the blockbuster Jumanji movies. It was also written by Fast and Furious‘ Chris Morgan, based on a story conceived by Hiram Garcia.
Further details about its plot and characters are still under wraps, but it is described as a globe-trotting, four-quadrant action-adventure comedy that imagines a new universe to explore within the holiday genre. Evans and Johnson will be joined by Lucy Liu, Kiernan Shipka, Kristofer Hivju, Nick Kroll, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, and Wesley Kimmel.
The project is produced by Morgan, Melvin Mar, and Sky Salem Robinson, along with Johnson, Hiram Garcia, and Dany Garcia for Seven Bucks Productions.
