Los Angeles – Action star Dwayne Johnson (49, “San Andreas” “Fast & Furious 8”) gets involved in a major Christmas film project for Amazon Studios.
Together they wanted to create “an enormous, fun and unique ‘Red One’ holiday universe for families around the world,” said the actor, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Johnson is involved in “Red One” with his production company Seven Bucks and as a leading actor.
