Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds are developing a musical reimagining of Charles Dickens’ classic 1843 novella “A Christmas Carol” with Sean Anders and John Morris (“Daddy’s Home”) set to pen and direct.
Ferrell and Reynolds will star, though details of who they will play are under wraps. The story of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge being visited by ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future has been adapted to film numerous times including 1988 Bill Murray comedy “Scrooged” to 2009’s Robert Zemeckis-helmed CG animated feature.
This package is currently being shopped around town and has no studio attached as of this point. Ferrell’s Gloria Sanchez and Reynolds’ Maximum Effort production companies will produce alongside Mosaic, Anders and Morris.
