Dwayne Johnson and the Director Of Jumanji, Together in an Amazon Comedy

MOVIE NEWS – The Dwayne Johnson film, which has the working title of ‘Red One’, is scheduled to shoot in 2022.


Dwayne Johnson will meet Jake Kasdan, the director of ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) and “Jumanji: The Next Level” (2019), in a Christmas-themed comedy on Amazon. The Hollywood Reporter magazine pointed out this Friday that this film, under the provisional title ‘Red One’, will be shot in 2022 to be released in 2023. The Hollywood Reporter points out that Johnson could play Santa Claus in this new film, although this is not confirmed yet.

Hiram Garcia, one of the regulars Dwayne Johnson producers and partners in their projects, created the story behind this tape over Christmas and is now in charge of shaping the script, Chris Morgan. In Morgan’s career, the script for ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw’ stands out, the first “spin-off” (derivative film) of ‘Fast & Furious’ and which featured Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham as protagonists.

This film for Amazon will serve as a reunion for Johnson and Kasdan after the enormous success with the relaunch of ‘Jumanji’ (1995). More than 20 years after that adventure title that Robin Williams led, ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ triumphed on the big screen, raising 962 million dollars from a budget of 90 million. Johnson was joined in the cast of this film by Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan. With the same cast, the sequel ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ also swept theatres with a revenue of $ 800 million from a budget of 125 million.

Johnson is one of the highest-grossing actors in Hollywood in recent years. This year he presented ‘Jungle Cruise’ with Emily Blunt and still has a big premiere before the end of 2021: the Netflix movie ‘Red Notice’ with Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot. For July 2022, another highly anticipated project has been booked: the film ‘Black Adam’ will enter the world of DC Comics and Warner Bros. superheroes.
