Bennett Miller and Tom Stoppard to Tell ‘A Christmas Carol’; Cronenberg’s ‘Rabid’ Gets Remake Treatment

3 March 2016 9:46 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

I struggle to imagine an eight-and-up member of the western world who’s not yet been told the story of A Christmas Carol, and it’s strange to think anybody with so much as a passing interest in movies hasn’t encountered an interpretation, from the many black-and-white English pictures, a Muppet rendition, Robert Zemeckis’ quickly forgotten adaptation, or, as is now something of a standard, Scrooged. Or all four, for that matter.

That won’t stop Bennett Miller, Tom Stoppard, and Annapurna Pictures, who have settled upon (respectively) directing, writing, and producing a new adaptation of Charles Dickens‘ classic. Their angle is uncertain, though THR‘s notice that the 19th-century setting will be retained might point towards a straight-ahead rendition. Although one immediately asks, “Well, why,” an exacting (or at least obsessive) filmmaker of Miller’s sort tackling material so deeply well-known is a great source of curiosity — if nothing else. »

Miller, Stoppard Team For "Christmas Carol"

3 March 2016 5:32 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Capote" helmer Bennett Miller and "Shakespeare in Love" screenwriter Tom Stoppard are teaming for a new film adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic fable "A Christmas Carol" for Annapurna Pictures.

Set in the 19th century like Dickens' 1843 novella, the story follows Ebenezer Scrooge and his redemptive Christmas Eve tour of the holiday past, present and future.

The story has been famously adapted for the screen countless times from the Bill Murray-led "Scrooged" to a Robert Zemeckis mo-cap adaptation to even an "Uncle Scrooge"-themed version.

Megan Ellison, Scott Rudin, Jennifer Fox and Miller will produce.

Bennett Miller, Tom Stoppard to Bring ‘A Christmas Carol’ Back to Life

2 March 2016 8:43 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

After having been a holiday staple since 1843, Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is returning to the big screen in the hands of director Bennett Miller and screenwriter Tom Stoppard. The classic tale about bitter old miser Ebenezer Scrooge and his visits from the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come is being developed for Megan Ellison‘s Annapurna Pictures. Ellison, Miller, Scott Rudin and Jennifer Fox will produce. Unlike Bill Murray‘s 1988 comedy “Scrooged,” the latest adaption will be a period piece set in the Dickensian era of the mid 19th century.

Rock the Kasbah movie review: whitemansplaining, the movie

22 February 2016 6:14 AM, PST | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Behold Bill Murray as the white savior barreling into a foreign land and teaching the ignorant natives how to be better people. Obnoxious and tone deaf. I’m “biast” (pro): love Bill Murray

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Bill Murray is Richie Lanz, a sleazy Los Angeles music manager. He’s the kind of guy who takes money from a wannabe singer with no talent and no chance of even the most measly sort of success but who is also naive enough to believe that it’s normal to pay him upfront. And he’s clearly been stringing along his assistant, Ronnie (Zooey Deschanel: Your Highness, Yes Man), who has been working for him in the expectation that she will get a boost to her own singing career. So when he takes her to Kabul — yes, in Afghanistan — to perform for U. »
