Ryan Reynolds has shared the first look at his Apple TV+ original film “Spirited”, a musical rendition of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday story “A Christmas Carol”. The film was directed by by Sean Anders (“Horrible Bosses”, “Daddy’s Home”), who co-wrote the script with his writing partner John Morris.
Reynolds will play the Ebenezer Scrooge-like lead, who is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. What lol Ferrell is expected to play Present, with Sunita Mani (“GLOW”), is playing Past, and Oscar winner Octavia Spencer playing Scrooge’s co-worker. The film will feature new songs from Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who are perhaps best known for their Oscar-winning work on “La La Land” and “Dear Evan Hansen”.
