Additionally, it has also been confirmed that J.K. Simmons and Bonnie Hunt have signed on to star opposite Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans. Simmons and Hunt are set to portray the respective roles of Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus. As part of the announcement, the first official Red One photo was revealed. It features Johnson and Evans in what seems to be a toy store, with Johnson wearing his unnamed character’s slick costume.

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. Evans and Johnson will be joined by Lucy Liu, Kiernan Shipka, Kristofer Hivju, Nick Kroll, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, and Wesley Kimmel.
