Jim Carrey Is Really Out to Scrooge Moviegoers

Jim Carrey will play Ebenezer Scrooge — as well as the three ghosts that haunt him — in a new big-screen adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, to be written and directed for Disney by Robert Zemeckis, says Variety. Zemeckis will shoot the film using "performance capture/Disney digital 3-D" animation, a technique he introduced in Tom Hanks' Polar Express and fine-tuned for Beowulf (an upcoming film starring Angelina Jolie), a bit of live action and a dash of Monster House-esque computer graphics. And just like that, The Grinch looks art-house.
