The movie began filming in October 2022 in Atlanta and stars Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans in the lead roles, and features Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Liu, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, J. K. Simmons, Nick Kroll and Kristofer Hivju in supporting roles.

The project is seen as the first of a potential franchise, reimagining holiday mythology.

The plot is being kept 'under wraps' at the moment though according to the IMDB page, but there are certainly hints at what we can expect from the producer 'Hiram Garcia':

“Red One is incredibly special to me and a story I've wanted to tell for years. An epic, edge-of- your seat, action-adventure that takes beloved holiday mythology and turns it on its head. I'm thrilled to have our Seven Bucks team join forces with Amazon to bring this fun Holiday tale to life for a global audience."

It's set to be launched exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the 2023 holiday season. We're counting down to this movie here with an unconfirmed date at the moment. Watch this space for more details.
