Apple is in final negotiations to pick up the Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds-led musical reimagining of the Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol” for Gloria Sanchez, Maximum Effort & Two Grown Men.
Apple reportedly aggressively chased after the project about the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, who is visited by ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.
Sean Anders and John Morris (“Daddy’s Home”) will write and direct the new take on the famed tale while Ferrell, Reynolds, George Dewey and Jessica Elbaum will produce.
Ferrell will next be seen in “Eurovision” and “Downhill” while Reynolds is set to lead both “6 Underground’ and “Free Guy.
