‘Red One’: Chris Evans To Star Opposite Dwayne Johnson In Amazon’s Holiday Action-Comedy From Director Jake Kasdan

Chris has been cast in a new holiday film opposite Dwayne Johnson! Can’t wait!

DEADLINE – EXCLUSIVE: Chris Evans (Avengers franchise, Defending Jacob) is set to star opposite Dwayne Johnson in an upcoming holiday event film from Amazon Studios, which is currently titled Red One.

The film, which aims to shoot this year, is a globe-trotting, four-quadrant action-adventure comedy, imagining a whole new universe to explore within the holiday genre. Specifics with regard to its plot are being kept under wraps.

The project stems from an original story by Seven Bucks Productions’ President of Production Hiram Garcia, which Amazon Studios landed after a highly competitive bidding war last year. Jake Kasdan (Jumanji franchise) 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.

Kasdan is producing through his production company The Detective Agency, alongside Melvin Mar and co-producer Sky Salem Robinson, with Morgan for Chris Morgan Productions, and Johnson, Hiram Garcia and Dany Garcia for Seven Bucks Productions.

Johnson announced his involvement with the title, slated for a 2023 holiday release, back in June. It reunites him with Kasdan and his collaborators at Seven Bucks on the heels of their blockbuster successes with Sony’s Jumanji films Welcome to the Jungle (2017) and The Next Level (2019), which have collectively grossed $1.7 billion worldwide. While Johnson and Evans both appeared in Shawn Levy’s 2021 comedy Free Guy for Disney, Red One is the first film that the pair will topline together.

Evans is best known for his turn as Steve Rogers (aka Super Soldier Captain America) in the Marvel films Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. The actor will next star in the Russo brothers’ film The Gray Man for Netflix, and as the voice of Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s origin story Lightyear, which is set for release in the U.S. on June 17. He is also in development on an untitled Gene Kelly project, which he will star in and produce, and is set to star in the upcoming Apple feature, Ghosted.

Evans also recently appeared in Adam McKay’s end-of-the-world comedy Don’t Look Up for Netflix, and in Mark Bomback’s Apple TV+ series Defending Jacob, which saw him portraying an assistant DA whose world was shattered, when his beloved son was charged with murder. Additional film credits include Knives Out, The Red Sea Diving Resort, Gifted, Before We Go, Snowpiercer, The Iceman, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Street Kings, The Nanny Diaries, Sunshine, Fantastic Four and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

Apple, Skydance Reuniting Chris Evans & Scarlett Johansson In Dexter Fletcher-Directed ‘Ghosted’

Chris has been cast in a new project with Scarlett Johansson in a new film titled “Ghosted.” Glad to see another new project for Chris!

DEADLINE – EXCLUSIVE: Apple Studios has set a high profile project that will reteam Marvel stalwarts Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans in Ghosted, a romantic action adventure that will be directed by Dexter Fletcher. He helmed Rocketman and finished Bohemian Rhapsody.

This becomes the latest deal for David Ellison’s Skydance, which is coming off the Chris Pratt-starrer The Tomorrow War, which was distributed by Amazon, the Michael B. Jordan-starrer Without Remorse, and just set Victoria Mahoney to direct Old Guard 2, the Netflix sequel.

This is the latests deal for Johansson (who’ll be part of the cast of the new Wes Anderson film) since her attorneys filed a lawsuit against Disney over the studio’s decision to day and date release Black Widow for premium purchase on Disney+. The dispute has become a proving ground for stars and their reps looking to cement a new template on deals with no backend bonuses, when studios flip titles to streamers. Johansson just had her first child with husband and Saturday Night Live head writer and Weekend Update newscaster Colin Jost, and Deadline revealed that Disney responded with a barbed rebuke to Johansson while she was in labor (in fairness her lawyers filed suite during the same period), which prompted her reps to announce the birth of their son. Start date is uncertain, predicated on when she can return to work.

She and Evans worked together in three Avengers films, as well as Captain America: Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. Waiting for more detail on the film and will convey when I have it.

Chris Evans Was Captain America. Now He Wants to Help Gen Z Reshape US Politics

NEWSWEEK – Chris Evans is best known for portraying Captain America, who teams up with other superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to form the Avengers. In real life, Evans has joined director and actor Mark Kassen and health care entrepreneur and philanthropist Joe Kiani to launch a website and app called A Starting Point, with the aim of getting young people interested in learning more about their elected officials and political issues.

Evans and Kassen met with Newsweek’s David H. Freedman via Zoom to talk about some of the obstacles they’ve had to overcome, the success they’ve had so far and their ambitions for the project.

Newsweek: What were the biggest challenges you faced in getting A Starting Point up and running?

Chris Evans: First we had to collect the interviews. For the first year and a half before we launched, most of what we did was going to Washington, D.C., and knocking on doors to try to collect these interviews. We needed to garner trust.

Mark Kassen: I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but Chris is famous. Sometimes I just forget that, because I’ve known him a long time and to me he’s just a normal person. So I was surprised when we went to D.C. at how excited and nervous people were to meet him. A lot of them told us that celebrities often come to D.C. to try to tell them what to do. They liked that we were asking them to talk about what they think. And they liked that we weren’t just looking for the most exciting, sexy stories. We asked them to talk about some of the issues that are important to them and their states, and that they usually don’t get to talk about.

How a U.S. government database fuels dangerous vaccine misinformation
CE: It’s a lot easier now that word is getting around. These days we’re fielding incoming calls from elected officials who want to be included.

NW: Do you hope A Starting Point can address the extreme polarization among voters and in government?

CE: The site wasn’t designed to try and promote bipartisanship. This isn’t a therapy session for the left and the right so we can all figure out how to sing kumbaya. It was created to promote engagement with young people. If we don’t get more young people to vote we’ll never get a government that accurately reflects who we are as a country. We felt the best way to fight apathy and promote engagement is to show the full spectrum of opinions that are out there. A lot of those opinions are different from mine, but I wanted to keep that out of it and let young people decide for themselves.

MK: The two parties seem to shape the narratives we hear on different media outlets. We wanted officials to talk to us about the issues without the narratives.

CE: Young people can detect journalistic spin as well as anyone can. Our guiding principle—and I think it’s pretty unique to us—is that we provide this information in a completely unbiased way. The content comes directly from elected officials. Mark had a fantastic idea about our doing profiles of different officials, but I was immediately wary, because it would be hard to do that without letting our own opinions affect how we do them. That could be in part because I am so politically vocal on social media, and I want to make sure that I never let that infiltrate this site. I was really worried that we were going to be branded as some sort of a leftist propaganda machine, that there was some sort of a liberal agenda. But that hasn’t happened at all.
