Jake Kasdan will direct the holiday action-adventure comedy, with Chris Morgan penning the script.

Chris Evans is set to star alongside Dwayne Johnson in an upcoming holiday action-adventure comedy from Amazon Studios.

The film, which is currently titled Red One, aims to shoot this year. It is a globe-trotting, four-quadrant action-adventure comedy imagining a whole new universe to explore within the holiday genre. Plot specifics are under wraps.

The project stems from an original story by Seven Bucks Productions’ President of Production Hiram Garcia that Amazon Studios landed after a competitive bidding war last year.

Jake Kasdan is directing from a screenplay by Seven Bucks Productions’ frequent collaborator Chris Morgan, who previously worked with them on such titles as Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw, The Fate of the Furious, Furious 7, Fast & Furious 6 and Fast Five.

The film will reunite Dwayne Johnson, Kasdan, and Seven Bucks Productions after collaborating on Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji: The Next Level; those two films have earned a combined $1.7 billion at the worldwide box office.

The film, which Amazon Studios outbid other suitors for, is billed as an action-adventure comedy that imagines a new universe for the holiday genre. Plot details on Red One are not yet available, but the movie, with a script penned by Chris Morgan, is based on an original story from Hiram Garcia, president of production at Seven Bucks.
