Don't miss

Reacher breakout Alan Ritchson has returned to his partnership with Amazon by signing on to star in The Man with the Bag, a holiday family comedy that Adam Shankman (Hairspray) will direct from Allan Ritchson’s script. This comes after the worldwide release of Fast X, in which he co-stars with Vin Diesel and many other notable actors. 

The Man with the Bag director Shankman is renowned for his light comedy style and has worked on films like The Wedding Planner, Bringing Down the House, Hairspray, and Rock of Ages. His most recent film, Disenchanted, a Disney+ production with Amy Adams as the lead, was directed last year.

After the theft of Santa’s magic bag, the movie under development at Amazon Studios picks up as he searches his naughty list for Vance (Ritchson), a former burglar who can help him recover it. To rescue Christmas, Vance will have to pull off the biggest robbery of his life with the help of his daughter, Santa, and a bunch of misfit elves.

Why is Alan Ritchson the best choice for comedy packed The Man With The Bag Movie?

Ritchson will not only star but also produce. Additionally producing are Lawrence Grey, Ben Everard, Reg Tigerman, and Dan Spilo.

Ritchson was a regular on the DC television series Titans, but his breakthrough came with Reacher, an Amazon series based on Lee Child’s novels. As the first Prime Video series to top Nielsen’s weekly streaming rankings, the show has been a huge success for the business.

It also became one of Prime Video’s most-watched original programs ever and was among the top five globally and in the United States. It was quickly renewed for a second season, and the actor signed a three-picture acting contract. That arrangement applies to Man with the Bag.

In Uni’s Fast X, which hit theatres last month, Ritchson may presently be seen as Aimes, the new head of Mr Nobody’s secret Agency. After wrapping up work on Guy Ritchie’s WWII film The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare and Season 2 of the Reacher television series for Black Bear International, he will next be seen with Hilary Swank in the drama Ordinary Angels from Lionsgate, which will be released on October 13.

According to Hollywood Reporter, There is no set release date for The Man with the Bag yet, as it is still under development. Ritchson and Shankman’s involvement, however, ensures that it will be a holiday hit for Amazon Studios.
