Shipka is best known for her role as Sally Draper in the acclaimed series Mad Men. Later on, she nabbed her very own series in the form of Netflix’s supernatural teen drama Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which only ran for 36 episodes. She will next be seen in the HBO limited drama The White House Plumbers.

Red One will be directed and produced by Jake Kasdan, who will reunite with Johnson after working together on the blockbuster Jumanji films. It is also written by Fast and Furious‘ Chris Morgan, based on a story conceived by Hiram Garcia.

Further details about its plot and characters are still being kept under wraps, but it is described as a globe-trotting, four-quadrant action-adventure comedy that imagines a whole new universe to explore within the holiday genre.
