Carey Mulligan, Daniel Kaluuya, Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman, Simon Russell Beale, Sian Phillips, and Leslie Caron have all been revealed as part of the voice cast of a new radical retelling of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” for Saboteur Media.
David Morris adapted the story following a Victorian family preparing a toy theatre for their annual performance of the work, which the grandmother narrates.
The film enters the imagination of one of the children in the audience as the cardboard stage and the story transform into a dark fantasy realm, adding lyricism and modern dance to the hallowed tale of redemption.
Documentarians Jacqui and David Morris (“McCullin,” “Nureyev”) co-direct and are producing the UK-Ukraine co-production. The project will be introduced at AFM later this month.
