"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.

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.
