BBC’s ‘A Christmas Carol’ Teaser Wants to Inspect Your Heart and Soul

Yesterday the BBC released a spooky little teaser for its new three-part special of A Christmas Carol.

Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight has adapted the Charles Dickens classic, starring Guy Pearce as Ebeneezer Scrooge and Andy Serkis as the Ghost of Christmas Past. The three-part series will air on the BBC in the U.K. and FX in the U.S. The series was executive produced by Tom Hardy, who is also attached in a mystery role, alongside Knight and Ridley Scott.

“This production of A Christmas Carol will respectfully present what we believe to be a timely interpretation of a timeless story.” – Steven Knight

The BBC really seems to be hitting the classics these days, with the upcoming series Dracula and their period piece take on War of the Worlds.

Plot Synopsis:

Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter old man, despises the Christmas holiday. Over the course of Christmas Eve night he is visited by three ghosts to show him his past, present and future.

It’s safe to assume that A Christmas Carol will air sometime this December.

What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
