Alan Ritchson, the star of Reacher, is set to feature in The Man with the Bag. Touted to be a holiday family comedy, the film is directed by Adam Shankman for Amazon Studios. Allan Rice of Stuck in the Middle fame has written the script of the film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, in the film, the Santa turns to his naughty list to get help when his bag of gifts gets stolen. He enlists expert Vance (Ritchson), a charming thief fresh out of prison who is trying to go straight, while attempting to spend a normal crime-free Christmas with his family. The thief, with the help of his daughter and a group of misfit elves, then must pull off the greatest heist of his life to save Christmas.
