Dwayne Johnson’s Red One is set to be similar to Guardians of the Galaxy in tone, according to producer Hiram Garcia. The movie is set to star Dwayne Johnson, whose Seven Bucks Productions will be producing the movie.

Dwayne Johnson’s Red One is like GOTG

Speaking to Collider, Hiram Garcia said that they are planning to have Red One released in time for Christmas of 2023, although no official release date has been mooted yet. Garcia also touched on the tone of the film, which will be similar to Guardians of The Galaxy, as well as the mythology of the movie.

What I can tell you is that it is a very big Christmas movie. We’ve always wanted to do a Christmas movie, but we didn’t want to do the typical Christmas movies that tend to go a little bit broader, I think, in tone.

We had been looking for something that matched, the tone and tenor of Dwayne Johnson and what Dwayne Johnson brings to the table, so was able to come up with a really fun Christmas idea.

But in tone it’s much more of a Hobbs & Shaw, more of Guardians of the Galaxy in tone and vibe because you’re dealing with crazy mythological elements.

Turning a lot of tropes we know about the holidays on their head, but also really big action and globe-trotting.

Principal photography of the movie is aimed to begin somewhere around May or June this year so as to meet the release date that the studio wants, and Dwayne Johnson is set to take home a whopping $50 million paycheck to star in the movie.

Hiram Garcia also added that Red One will be a combination of both comedy and action, in line with Johnson’s outings with similar themes in movies such as Jumanji and Jungle Cruise.
