Although not too much is known about the upcoming comedy holiday film The Red starring Dwayne Johnson, the actor recently took to social media to share a photograph of their Santa.
The new photos Johnson shared show his character appearing to be an elf of some sort walking behind JK Simmons dressed as a more tactical Santa. In the post, Johnson said it’s “an honor to have my six,” before noting that it’s been another solid week working on the film. Johnson teased more to come before announcing himself as “Commander of the ELF”
The Red will be directed and produced by Jake Kasdan, who reunites with Johnson after working together on the blockbuster Jumanji movie. It is also written by Fast and furiousChris Morgan, based on a story devised by Hiram Garcia.
Further details about its plot and characters are still being kept under wraps, but it is described as a four-quadrant globe-trotting action-adventure comedy that envisions a whole new universe to explore within the holiday genre. Evans and Johnson are 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.
