Scooper ‘Chuck’ tells us more stars have joined Robert Zemeckis’ (Beowulf) next performance capture/Disney digital 3-D film, A Christmas Carol, toplining Jim Carrey as Ebenezer Scrooge, the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present and the Ghost of Christmas Future:
Robert Zemeckis revealed in a podcast on the official Beowulf site that Bob Hoskins, Colin Firth and Gary Oldman have joined Jim Carrey in A Christmas Carol. In her own podcast, Robin Wright Penn announced she was also in A Christmas Carol. There was no mention of [the rumored] Tom Hanks, Christopher Lloyd or Michael J. Fox, although that does not mean they will not be in the film.
Disney is targeting a November 6, 2009 release date for the pic, an adaptation of the Charles Dickens tale.
