Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell to star in musical version of A Christmas Carol


Apple acquires rights for distribution

Deadline has learned that Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell will be starring in a musical rendition of the classic Charles Dickens novel A Christmas Carol. Acquired by Apple for distribution, the film will be directed by Sean Anders and John Morris. Ferrell and Jessica Elbaum will produce through the Gloria Sanchez label while Reynolds and George Dewey will produce through Maximum Effort.

There's no word on a release date or if the film even has a script. Apple hasn't returned comments to Deadline for clarification on details. Considering Apple TV launches next month, I don't think we'll be seeing this film in time for 2019's holiday season.
