Check out this new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday story A Christmas Carol from BBC and FX. We saw a trailer from BBC already, but now FX has released a new trailer. This trailer is packed with a lot of wonderful new footage. Guy Pearce takes on the role of Ebenezer Scrooge in this much more sinister take on the classic Christmas tale, and it looks fabulous! I love Pearce’s take on Scrooge because he looks all sorts of creepy.
The new upcoming miniseries will take “a darker approach to the 1843 British novella following Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter old man who despises the Christmas holiday. Over the course of Christmas Eve night, he is visited by three ghosts to show him his past, present and future should he stay on the hateful path he is currently on.”
This new take of A Chrismas Carol was written and developed by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders, Taboo, See) and is being executive produced by Tom Hardy and Ridley Scott. The project also has a excellent supporting cast that includes Andy Serkis (Venom 2) as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Stephen Graham (Rocketman) as Jacob Marley, Charlotte Riley (Trust) as Lottie, Joe Alwyn (The Favourite) as Bob Cratchit, Vinette Robinson (Sherlock) as Mary Cratchit, Jason Flemyng (Pennyworth) as the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, and Kayvon Novak (What We Do in the Shadows) as Ali Baba.
Hardy also got a mystery role which no one knows about.
A Christmas Carol air on FX on December 19, 2019.
