76-year-old and 54-year-old career: this legendary actor will play the role of Santa Claus in the film, which is expected to be released in 2025

Yesterday in the US, Prime Video took advantage of the Upfronts (a series of panels where broadcasters come to present their next releases) to reveal their current projects and make some announcements: The Boys renewal, Road House sequel. Jake Gyllenhaal, Black and White Spider-Man series with a great cast…

Speaking of a great cast, it’s a nice move Amazon has made with The Bag Man, its next Christmas movie. The platform has actually confirmed that Arnold Schwarzenegger will play the lead role, and you’ll have to wait until 2025 to see it streamed.

The former Terminator, now 76, will be opposite Alan Ritchson, who has been seen everywhere since the success of his Reacher series on the same platform. Here is a brief overview:

After stealing Santa’s magic bag, Santa takes in Vance, an ex-thief just out of prison who is trying to reintegrate and spend Christmas with his family. Instead, Vance, along with his daughter and a group of elves, must pull off the biggest heist of his life to save Christmas.

Stream priority

A man more used to action films than Christmas comedies, he hasn’t starred in this type of production since 1996. 28 years ago he appeared in The Race for the Toy alongside a young Jake Lloyd.

Schwarz proves with this new project that he prefers to turn to streaming platforms rather than cinema. Absent from the big screen since 2019 (with Terminator: Dark Fate), the actor-turned-politician has mostly been working with Netflix. In addition to a docu-series called Sober Arnold, he also hosts Fubar, a spy comedy whose Season 2 is currently in production.

The latter could also include The Man with the Bag – directed by Adam Shankman (Once Upon a Time 2) – which Prime Video won’t offer until winter 2025. With this project, the streaming giant is confirming its desire to make one Christmas movie at a time. year. In 2023, it was Eddie Murphy who joined the friendly Candy Cane Lane.
