It looks like Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star, Kiernan Shipka, has found her next major project as she’s set to join Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans in the upcoming Amazon Prime Video holiday event titled Red One. It’ll be directed by Jumanji director Jake Kasdan but no further details on her role or even the plot of this Holiday event are being shared. It’s being marketed as an action-adventure comedy for all four quadrants that’ll open up a potential new “universe” in “the holiday genre.”
Amazon Studios is developing and it’ll be an original story from Hiram Garcia after they landed the bidding war for the project back in 2021. Seven Bucks Production collaborator Chris Morgan wrote the screenplay for the adaptation, who has quite an extensive history with the Fast & Furious franchise. So, we might be able to expect a lot of action cut from the same cloth.
It’s interesting to see this cast come together and theorize what direction they are going with this story. She’s joining two big-named actors in what could be a brand new franchise that opens up many new opportunities. It’s interesting how the word “universe” is used and it may be Amazon’s attempt at creating their own big recurring holiday franchise. So, we’ll see what they have in store for us.
