Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming Christmas movie is going to give festive fun something special Guardians of the Galaxy stiltwist, producer Hiram Garcia has revealed.
Garcia, who is production director at Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions company, has told Collider to The Red, which is being worked on with Amazon Studios, will be a “big Christmas movie” directed by Jumanji director Jake Kasdan, and which the team is “very turned on”.
Although no details about the plot have been revealed The Red just so far, Garcia has teased that we can expect to see a real twist on the festive film genre.

“What I can tell you is that it’s a very big Christmas movie,” he said. “We’ve always wanted to make a Christmas movie, but we did not want to make the typical Christmas movies that tend to go a little wider, I think, in tone.
“We had been looking for something that matched, the tone and tenor of DJ (Dwayne Johnson) and what DJ brings to the table, so we were able to come up with a really fun Christmas idea, but in tone it’s much more one Hobbs & Shaw, more of Guardians of the Galaxy in tone and mood, because you deal with crazy mythological elements, puts a lot of tropics, we know about the holiday, upside down, but also really great action and globetrott. “
It certainly does not sound like this is going to be a quiet and cozy Christmas movie, where Garcia promises that we will turn our understanding of festive mythology of the movie upside down.
“One of the things we like about this project is that we can not find a composer for a Christmas movie that has ever been made like this or one that matches the tone and scale of what it should be, so it feels exciting for us to do something that has not been done before, “he said.

“When we hash it out with Jake Kasdan and Chris Morgan, we just get more and more excited about how to turn all this funny mythology that people know so well upside down, but in a really cool way it will always get the holiday to feel even better and more genuine. “
Garcia also confirmed that we can expect to see the film during the “2023 holidays” if all goes according to plan, saying: “We are in full swing here to make things go as we have a lot of world building to do and a lot of storytelling to complete. “
After the success of the similarly named Red message, expectations for Johnson’s next red-inspired film are likely high.
