– Christmas just came early. Two of the funniest guys around, Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds, are teaming up for a musical re-imagining of “A Christmas Carol”. Talk about the best present ever. And The Hollywood Reporter
can exclusively reveal that coming up on top of a bidding war, Apple is in final negotiations
to pick up the project. The two A-listers will
be starring in the piece that is said to be directed by
Sean Anders and John Morris. The writing-directing team
previously worked with Ferrell on the two “Daddy’s Home” comedies. – Oh my god, what are you doing? – Is this even ethical? (gasps) “James and the Giant Peach”. (woman gulps) Did you just gulp? – Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but sources say that
Apple moved aggressively as it seeks to make an impact
in the original feature space. Of course, “A Christmas
Carol” is the famous tale of Ebeneezer Scrooge,
who is visited by ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. Ferrell’s next to star in
the comedy “Eurovision” and the drama “Downhill.” While Reynolds next stars
in action-comedy “Free Guy” and Michael Bay’s action
flick “Six Underground”. Of course, Reynolds most recently starred in “Detective Pikachu” and “Deadpool Two”. (Juggernaut grunts) – It works best when you pull the trigger. (beam blasts) (Juggernaut grunts) That guy’s amazing. – All right, for more on
this story, head to THR.com. Until next time, for “The
Hollywood Reporter News”, I’m Tiffany Taylor. (gentle music)
