Will Ferrell & Ryan Reynolds to Star in A Christmas Carol Musical Movie
The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds are set to star in a musical re-imagining of A Christmas Carol. It’s unclear who they pair will be playing in the film.
The film will reunite Ferrell with Daddy’s Home team Sean Anders and John Morris who will write and produce the film. No studio is currently attached but the project is being pitched across Hollywood.
Ferrell and Reynolds both previously appeared in the Richard Nixon/White House comedy Dick in 1999 but shared no scenes and haven’t properly collaborated ever. Reynolds can next be seen in Netflix’s 6 Underground and The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard from Lionsgate, with Ferrell set to star in Netflix’s EuroVision feature film and Downhill, the Fox Searchlight remake of the 2014 Swedish film Force Majeure.
Charles Dickens’ immortal classic was first published in 1843 and has seen nearly two dozen film adaptations since the advent of the medium, starting in 1901 all the way through the Jim Carrey/Robert Zemeckis performance capture version in 2009, with just as many done for television.
