New Adaptation of 'A Christmas Carol' Coming from 'Foxcatcher' Director Bennett Miller
Director Bennett Miller has found his follow-up to Foxcatcher, it seems. Via THR, Miller looks to be joining Oscar-winning screenwriter Tom Stoppard for an adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.
The new adaptation would be a 19th century period piece in an effort to set it apart from the countless adaptations of Dickens' famous novel. Since 1984 there have been three, and regardless of whether the story has earned it, the market is saturated as it is with repeats.
In any case, it will be interesting to see who Miller looks to as he builds a famous cast of characters led by the grumpy Ebenezer Scrooge.
