The Charles Dickens novella A Christmas Carol is a timeless classic, adapted a great many times in the years since its publication in 1843.
For the upcoming holiday season a new adaptation of the tale is coming, this time from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight. A teaser trailer for this latest take was released earlier this week, and it promises a darker version of the story than most of the previous adaptations we’ve seen.
More info on the new adaptation of A Christmas Carol and the trailer can be found below.
The miniseries, which will be presented in three episodes, stars Guy Pearce as Ebenezer Scrooge, Andy Serkis as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Stephen Graham as Jacob Marley, Joe Alwyn as Bob Cratchit, Vinette Robinson as Mary Cratchit, and Charlotte Riley as a character named Lottie.
All three episodes of the miniseries were directed by Nick Murphy, and written by Knight.
Executive producers include Tom Hardy, who co-created and executive produced Taboo with Knight, and Ridley Scott, who was also an executive producer on Taboo.
The miniseries will air this December on both the BBC and on FX here in the States.
FX’s A Christmas Carol is an original take on Charles Dickens’ iconic ghost story by Steven Knight. The FX Original Movie is a spine-tingling immersion into Ebenezer Scrooge’s dark night of the soul. The dark reimagining of the classic tale is produced by FX Productions in association with the BBC, Scott Free and Tom Hardy’s Hardy Son & Baker.
