FX’s upcoming “A Christmas Carol” adaptation will bring zero good tidings for you and your kin this holiday season if the trailer released on Wednesday is any indication.
Described as “a spine-tingling immersion into Scrooge’s dark night of the soul,” the movie adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic stars Guy Pearce as the miserly capitalist who is visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve.
The film will debut on FX on Dec. 19, with encore broadcasts set for throughout the week leading up to Christmas.
In addition to Pearce, “A Christmas Carol” stars Andy Serkis as Ghost of Christmas Past; Stephen Graham as Jacob Marley; Charlotte Riley as Lottie; Joe Alwyn as Bob Cratchit; Vinette Robinson as Mary Cratchit; Rutger Hauer as the Ghost of Christmas Future; Kayvan Novak as Ali Baba and Lenny Rush as Tim Cratchit.
“Taboo” creator Steven Knight re-teamed with FX and BBC as writer and executive producer of the movie. Nick Murphy directed. The film hails from FX Productions in association with the BBC, Scott Free and Tom Hardy’s Hardy Son & Baker banner.
Executive producers are Hardy, Ridley Scott, Dean Baker, David W. Zucker and Kate Crowe. Julian Stevens serves as producer.
