In a classic Christmas tradition Thrilling this isn’t the only version of the Dickens story to hit screens this year, like Netflix Scrooge: A Christmas Carol he will also reimagine classical history.


Thrilling is John Morris’s first directing alongside Sean Anders, a band that previously co-created many projects such as Immediate family, we are the Millers, and Dad’s house.

In this modernized tale of a classic story, it seems the characters are fully aware of it Carol exists as revealed in a previously released trailer. This remarkable meta-narrative, while drawing attention to its artificiality, will open the door to a potential fourth wall breaking, for which Reynolds is well known in his previous comedy work. The comedy continues with a look behind the curtain where ghosts can walk the Earth one night a year to warn villains to change their course or face the ramifications of their future.

With Ferrell and Sunita Mani playing the roles of ghosts who seem to be employed to help make people better, this movie will provide a fresh perspective on troubled territory, something many Christmas movies try to do these days. In a similar style as Scrooged (which will potentially get a remake featuring Kevin Hart), Thrilling should charm your audience while turning what they already know on its head, potentially delving into a deeper history of the human condition without making its content as terrifying as the original story. With comedy chops by Reynolds and Ferrell at the forefront, this music video is meant to be a hilarious parody that pays tribute to the many adaptations that already exist.
