First image of Dan Stevens as Charles Dickens in The Man Who Invented Christmas

27 March 2017 4:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from the box office success of his latest film Beauty and the Beast, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first official image of Dan Stevens as author Charles Dickens in the upcoming holiday release The Man Who Invented Christmas.

“It was a really spooky, intriguing, funny piece,” said Stevens with regards to Susan Coyne’s (Mozart in the Jungle) script. “I just thought it was a really fresh take on that whole world. Particularly in England, Dickens is placed on a pedestal. But the guy was, at turns, quite playful and childish, and, at turns, quite dark and not a very pleasant man.”

The Man Who Invented Christmas is directed by Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day) and takes place in 1843, exploring how Dickens penned his literary classic A Christmas Carol. Also featuring in the cast are Jonathan Pryce as Dickens’ father, and Christopher Plummer as Ebenezer Scrooge. »
