When the movie began production back in 2022, Johnson published a social media post, writing: "It's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAAAS. Officially kicking off production for our CHRISTMAS franchise film titled, Red One with my guy @chrisevans.”

"Chris and I have been waiting to make a Christmas movie our entire careers and now finally, the trouble begins," he continued.

"Red One is incredibly special to me and a story I've wanted to tell for years," added storywriter Hiram Garcia. "An epic, edge-of-your-seat, action adventure that takes beloved holiday mythology and turns it on its head."

Alongside Johnson, Evans and Simmons, the cast of Red One also includes Lucy Liu, Kiernan Shipka, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, and Bonnie Hunt.

Red One is scheduled to be released on November 15, 2024.
