SPIRITED Interview by PJ Byrne
ABOUT: Each Christmas Eve, the Ghost of Christmas Present (Will Ferrell) selects one dark soul to be reformed by a visit from three spirits. But this season, he picked the wrong Scrooge. Clint Briggs (Ryan Reynolds) turns the tables on his ghostly host until Present finds himself reexamining his own past, present and future.
For the first time, “A Christmas Carol” is told from the perspective of the ghosts in this hilarious musical twist on the classic Dickens tale.
From Director Sean Anders (“Daddy’s Home,” “Instant Family”), written by Sean Anders and John Morris, with original songs by Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (“La La Land”) and production numbers choreographed by Chloe Arnold (“The Late Late Show with James Corden”), this modern retelling is a sweet and spicy holiday treat. Starring: Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds, Octavia Spencer, Sunita Mani Directed By: Sean Anders Produced By: Sean Anders, John Morris, George Dewey, Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum, David Koplan Executive Produced By: Diana Pokorny, Justin Paul, Benj Pasek
