Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Dany Garcia’s Seven Bucks Productions is partnering with Amazon Studios to develop the feature film Red One.
From the mind of Hiram Garcia, the President of Production at Seven Bucks Productions, Red One will star Johnson. Chris Morgan will reunite with the Fast and Furious actor to write the script for the film. It is scheduled to begin shooting in 2022, and release in holiday 2023.
Here is a very brief description of the film that may not be specific, but gives a good idea of what to expect from Red One:
Red One, conceived by Hiram Garcia, President of Production at Seven Bucks Productions, and set to star Johnson, is a globe-trotting, four-quadrant action-adventure comedy, imagining a whole new universe to explore within the holiday genre. This unique concept represents a property that could encompass not only a tentpole film but could reach beyond entertainment across multiple industries and businesses.
“Seven Bucks Productions is a leader in creating unique and compelling entertainment for the entire family, and we know Red One will continue that tradition,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “Hiram’s concept and the world he’s envisioned are uniquely original and we are so excited to team with Seven Bucks Productions and Chris Morgan to help bring it to life. Red One is just the first step in what we know will be a successful, collaborative venture.”
Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia are set to produce via Seven Bucks Productions. Morgan will also produce.
“Hold my Mana, because this is exciting,” said Dwayne Johnson. “Our Seven Bucks is very bullish on our partnership with Amazon Studios; underpinned with some innovation, some pioneering and a lot of positive energy and passion. I’ve been very impressed with Jen Salke and her team’s vision and ambition to create an enormous, fun, and unique Red One holiday universe for families around the world to enjoy.”
Johnson has been incredibly busy the past few years starring in several films and TV shows, much of which are produced by Seven Bucks Production. This includes Ballers, Jumanji: The Next Level, and Young Rock. He will star in Jungle Cruise, which will release this year, as well as Black Adam, which is scheduled for a 2022 release.
“This partnership, a long time in the making, is exactly the way we envisioned teaming up with Jennifer and Amazon,” said Dany Garcia, Co-Founder of Seven Bucks Productions. “A studio with such depth and synergy fits so seamlessly with the types of authentic, inclusive and dynamic stories we are committed to telling within our Seven Bucks’ slate. This incredible story from Hiram is special to all of us and bringing it home to Amazon, where we share tremendous vision and forward-thinking, is perfect alignment across the board.”
“Red One is incredibly special to me and a story I’ve wanted to tell for years,” said Hiram Garcia. “An epic, edge-of-your seat, action-adventure that takes beloved holiday mythology and turns it on its head. I’m thrilled to have our Seven Bucks team join forces with Amazon to bring this fun Holiday tale to life for a global audience.”
