Miller, Stoppard Team For “Christmas Carol”

“Capote” helmer Bennett Miller and “Shakespeare in Love” screenwriter Tom Stoppard are teaming for a new film adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic fable “A Christmas Carol” for Annapurna Pictures.

Set in the 19th century like Dickens’ 1843 novella, the story follows Ebenezer Scrooge and his redemptive Christmas Eve tour of the holiday past, present and future.

The story has been famously adapted for the screen countless times from the Bill Murray-led “Scrooged” to a Robert Zemeckis mo-cap adaptation to even an “Uncle Scrooge”-themed version.

Megan Ellison, Scott Rudin, Jennifer Fox and Miller will produce.
